Mechanical Assemblies

For many years PENCOM has been providing kitting and assembly services saving customers the time and expense of ordering, receiving, handling and tracking the same multiple parts over and over again. By ordering pre–counted and labeled packages, customers achieve lean manufacturing and cost reduction objectives while consolidating vendors and relieving procurement personnel from the logistical burden of managing multiple individual components. Some of the service benefits include:

  • Custom labels with bar codes, shelf locations, parts list, etc.
  • Sourcing or manufacturing of parts by PENCOM
  • Multi– level assemblies
  • Invoicing by kit or project number
  • A variety of packaging options

Kits and assemblies are produced in PENCOM’s own facilities for use on assembly lines or moved on to the next user. ISO-registered quality systems ensure the accuracy customers demand.

The examples below illustrate just a few of the options PENCOM routinely provides. To join the list of satisfied customers who have found kitting and assembly services produced significant savings through less inventory and labor while reducing time spent managing orders contact a PENCOM Account Representative.

PENCOM supplies an assembly consisting of a heat sink manufactured by PENCOM, thermal pad and four attachment pins. The customer simply installs the unit on their production line and saves approximately 8% of the total cost in inventory and labor reductions.

This subassembly is manufactured in PENCOM’s Nogales, Mexico facility and also highlights the company’s machining capabilities as exemplified by the twin-lead acme threads, variety of materials and tight tolerances. The customer, a manufacturer of medical equipment, not only realizes the advantages of managing a single component but the cost benefit of production in a low–cost region as well.

PENCOM’s Dong Guan, China factory assembles a pump rotor for a global medical technology leader of dialysis and renal care products. Most of the 29 components, including custom machined parts, bushings, pins and threaded fasteners, are manufactured in-house. Accuracy and cost are optimized in one location by using the factory’s wide variety of precision milling and turning centers and high-production automatic lathes. Following manufacturing, trained technicians observe documented assembly and quality assurance instructions during each step. They use precise dedicated inspection gauges designed and manufactured in-house to achieve defect-free assemblies and efficient throughput.
