AMI has announced that its quality management system had been certified to the ISO 13485:2003 standard for medical devices. This achievement builds on the company's longstanding commitment to investing in the infrastructure needed to support its customers' requirements for superior quality. AMI has been ISO 9001 registered since 1997 and added AS9100 certification for aerospace work in 2015.

ISO 13485 was established as a set of requirements for a comprehensive quality management system for the design and manufacture of medical devices. 

“Our certification to ISO 13485 is a significant milestone for AMI. It recognizes the robust processes for manufacturing developed here at AMI that serve our customers well including our growing medical device segment. With our depth of experience in electronics manufacturing and the continued influx of electronics into devices used in the medical field, this is a great fit and natural expansion of the services offered by AMI,” said Greg Boyd, president and CEO of AMI.

“The medical community has long been leveraging advancements in electronics and is beginning to utilize the connectivity found in Internet-of-Things (IoT)-related products. AMI is deeply involved in manufacturing IoT hardware and I expect our experience to benefit both companies developing traditional electronic devices as well as the newer suite of connected devices,” added Scot Story, AMI’s vice president of business development.

The Importance of Product Testing for Quality, Reliability and Durability

01/17/2018 | Patty Rasmussen, East West Manufacturing
One really vital piece of the product development process is product testing for quality, reliability and durability. You need to find out whether your product will do what it's supposed to do—that's quality. You also need to learn whether it will do what it's supposed to do over and over again, even when conditions aren't ideal—that's reliability and durability.

Improving Design, Manufacturing and Assembly Teamwork

01/15/2018 | Syrma Technology
Many electronics manufacturers tend to compartmentalize or "silo" their departments, such as the design team versus assembly-related functions. The relationship between design and manufacturing can too often be disconnected or otherwise poor, which stalls productivity and increases bottom-line costs. By identifying and addressing these gaps, this financial hemorrhage can be reduced, and profitability increased.

Tips & Tricks: Assembly Panelization

01/12/2018 | Ken Horky, Peterson Manufacturing
Thoughtful PCB array and panel design can reduce line stoppage, improve changeover time and reduce material scrap. Fiducial location and design are good aids to prevent mistakes, but may still result in line stoppage. If you have fiducial recognition issues, making the shape of the mask opening different than the fiducial feature may help the vision system discern the target feature easier.
