One of the great strengths of the Engineering Team at Thistle Design is their ability to draw on a wide range of experience in the encoder industry to provide unique solutions to measurement, motion and control problems.
Thistle Design has its own in house production facility allowing us to manufacture and test our range of products.
All critical manufacturing and assembly operations are carried out in clean air Laminar Flow Cabinets.This reduces potential contamination at sub assembly and general assembly stages and contributes to increased product reliability.
Where appropriate all critical components are Environmentally Stress Screened to eliminate early failures and improve product life.
Lean Manufacturing Techniques learned in extensive training by SBAC Engineers are used to minimise waste at every stage in the manufacturing process. The production processes are continually being examined, analysed and improved.
