Mechanical Assembly & Bonding
Meridian provides mechanical assembly as well as bonding. We can also manufacture fixtures to facilitate the bonding process.
Compatible adhesives and tapes are selected to ensure continued use reliability.
Ultra-Sonic Welding & Insertion
Meridian assembles various products utilizing ultra-sonic welding and insertion. With years of experience, Meridian utilizes best practices to optimize the assembly with proper booster, horns and tips. Further design considerations regarding hole sizes, energy directors, and compatible materials are evaluated as these are incorporated into the process.
Post Molding Machining
We provide post molding machining and tapping for part enhancement that provides for customers a production ready component or finished good for use in additional assemblies after processing. We also provide heat shrink assembly for electronic cables after overmolding. The repeatability of these processes is key in maintaining lot-to-lot consistency structured within our Quality Management System.
For true turnkey assembly, Meridian assembles components mechanically and then electronically required components are installed per documented processes. Quality checks are performed at each step, so the finished assembly performs as intended in mechanical and electronic design. Extensive training and documentation for each assembly is required to ensure the product performance meets the customer requirements.
For products that were not injection molded, Meridian offers conversion processes such as tubing cut to size, magnet insertion, and spring installation.
