Faist Mekatronic - Romania
With time to market an increasingly important differentiator for manufacturers, building a reliable supply chain has never been more essential. These pressures are particularly prevalent in fast-moving sectors such as consumer electronics, or even in the highly competitive automotive field. For suppliers to these industries, the challenge is to deliver a hugely diverse range of components, correctly and on time, every time. One company that knows these challenges extremely well is Faist Mekatronic, a key supplier for the telecom and automotive industries. Established in 2005 and located in Oradea, Romania, Faist Mekatronic is one of the 24 globally-located sites that make up multinational manufacturing powerhouse FAiST Group. Since FAiST Group was founded in 1978, it has grown consistently and now has over 2,500 employees worldwide.
Faist Mekatronic sits within the Light Metal Components business unit, which specialises in R&D, new product introduction and component manufacturing processes including aluminium die casting, precision machining and surface plating. The business prides itself on its reputation for innovation and quality, and utilises its global footprint and expertise to reinforce both. “An innovative product is only successful when it is based on reliable concepts and technologies,” explains Lucian Scurtu, Metrology Responsible at Faist Mekatronic. Our products are typically die-cast parts with complex geometries and we have to ensure correct dimensional results.
“We chose Hexagon because the company is a top supplier of products and services in the 3D measurement field and beyond. We also use Q-DAS statistical process control software, and we have excellent technical support, maintenance and training from Hexagon’s authorised dealer in Romania – Micro-Top. It’s this ability to offer complete and comprehensive solutions across the whole manufacturing spectrum that makes Hexagon such a valuable partner,” concludes Lucian Scurtu. “I don’t think I could even begin to quantify how much time and money our measurement systems have saved over the last decade, but for sure we couldn’t have reached today’s level of development and performance without our partnership with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.”
