No-risk Prototypes

DMI guarantees its machining accuracy and product performance with a no-risk prototype.

Before an invoice is generated, and before production begins on any product, DMI manufactures a first article for customer approval. This DMI operating standard assures the customer of their product’s quality and accuracy by allowing customers the opportunity to accurately measure and visually assess the product prior to production beginning in quantity.

Examples of Consulting Projects:
Conveyor System with Vision Recognition for Product Handling

Custom-built conveyor designed, manufactured and installed by DMI. This was a DMI solution for a customer’s particular issue with low productivity. The implemented solution was that as parts move down a conveyor belt, a high-resolution camera using a vision recognition system captures the two- dimensional identification marking on each DUT (Device Under Test).

This automation of the sorting process dramatically improved production, as well as provided variable speed capability and congestion management on the conveyor.

Automated Product Handler for Power Converters

A/B High-current testing system (180A). A PLC used with a touch-screen interface. The implementation of this handler decreased test time by 80% by allowing multiple testing and handling operations to occur simultaneously. With 12 sensors per test unit, the handler ensured proper seating of the DUT and made certain that all electrical and optical tests were completed. To prevent operational hazards, two sets of a light curtains designed to shut down the machine when the beam is broken, were a functional safety feature.
