Syrma Creates Proprietary End-of-Line PCB Tester Equipment

Boosting our quality assurance (QA) a notch above common industry standards, such as in-line ICT/MDA checks and optical/x-ray inspections, we developed a proprietary end-of-line functional PCB tester from scratch, fabricating the external hardware and control panels, internal circuitry, and operating software. This PCB tester is used for our PCB and OEM product builds, ensuring top quality for every unit shipped to our clients while anticipating performance and reliability under real-world field conditions. We incorporated a bed-of-nails fixture for testing and overall function of standalone PCBs, as well as an additional custom-designed flexible probe apparatus for checking the same boards following conformal coating protection and installation inside a finished product unit.

Challenges

This PCB tester can be configured to simulate anticipated operating conditions in the field, ensuring optimal performance under the most extreme parameters. Our end-of-line tester successfully conducts and records comprehensive quality checks for relays, sensors, and other critical components, including block switches, commercial & fuel selector; blower, ignition, pump, & solenoid relays; blower PWM; display icons; flame, flow, leak, & temperature sensors; speed feedback; and water valve. After deployment on our production floor, our homegrown end-of-line test equipment has proven to be an invaluable added measure for maintaining our test requirement specifications (TRS), which we jointly establish with every client. As an added service, we’ve also loaned duplicate PCB tester units to clients for onsite QA checks at the point of delivery. 

Successes

We contribute our 40 years of design and manufacturing expertise spanning multiple diverse markets. We look forward to discussing how we can deliver world-class products for OEMs across the globe. We understand our home Indian market, familiar with its vast regulatory and selling environments. We foster growth opportunities within India through our strong technology incubation ecosystem. We also assist global OEMs in entering the Indian market by leveraging the local supply chain and favorable operating environments for cost reductions.

Our flagship Chennai location opened in 2006 and lies within a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) for electronics manufacturing, offering economic incentives for imports and exports. This primary facility is within 90 minutes of the Chennai seaport and 20 minutes to the international airport. Additional road and rail connectivity links to the rest of India and beyond and infrastructure advantages with faster import and export clearances. We also have labor force flexibility, both technical and manual, to scale to demand rapidly.
