- Product Management
Design and Engineering
Solar Technology hires talented Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic and Software (Embedded and Application) Product Development Team for complete product design and development – from initial concept to final design. We use of a full suite of sophisticated CAD solutions including Finite Element Analysis (for mechanical designs) and Signal Integrity Analysis (for electronic PCB designs). We create working prototypes, using 3-D printing (via one of our rapid prototype partners) in combination with our own in-house R&D prototype fabrication and assembly capabilities.
SolarTech has a full metal fabrication department, and hires graduates from the local technical institutes. We create simple or complex custom fabricated metal assemblies using all types and sizes of sheet metal parts (via our long-time partner Daria Metal Fabricators), and all types, shapes and sizes of HRS, CRS and aluminum stock (tubing, angle, flat-stock, channel, etc.). Our Fabrication Department includes sawing, punching, forming, bending, plasma cutting, grinding, etc. We also have an aluminum Profile Machining Center, and multiple welding stations (pulsed MIG for both steel and aluminum).
Prep and Paint
After fabrication is complete, all metal assemblies are completely de-burred, all welds ground smooth and all sharp edges removed. Next they are cleaned in a high-temperature, high-pressure Iron Phosphate Pre-Treatment process, followed by the application of a very durable finish — an Epoxy Primer and an Aliphatic Urethane Top-Coat. The Paint Department hires tech graduates with auto body painting experience.
Electronics and Cabling
Using our fully automatic CNC wire cutting and stripping machine along with a complete line of Molex and Amp presses, we create simple jumper wires to very complex wire harness assemblies. Our Electronics Department uses an automatic tester that checks for continuity, resistance and correct pin-out.
SolarTech hires workers skilled at both very light and moderately heavy assembly. We assemble everything from small electronic devices and controllers up to our large towable trailers for highway signs. For heavy and/or large assembly we have two assembly lines with multiple overhead 2-ton cranes with a minimum lift height of 18 feet.
Inspection and Testing
Absolutely nothing leaves our facility without the scrutiny of SolarTech’s Quality Assurance Team. Throughout the entire manufacturing process, each and every component, subassembly and final assembly is inspected, tested and approved per pre-established, pre-approved and fully documented procedures to ensure the quality we promise is delivered. All inspection records are maintained for 10 years.
If a failure or deficiency does occur after delivery, we can track down when, where and why the problem occurred and implement changes to eliminate the source of the failure, thus preventing it from happening again. Note: rejected components or subassemblies are not simply discarded or repaired. Per our ISO Corrective Action Procedure, we conduct root cause analysis: tracking down and eliminating the sources of non-conformances to eliminate future problems.
