Product quality

ASEM pursues the objective of a high quality standard of its products/systems in each phase of the manufacturing cycle:

Suppliers

Suppliers are selected based on demanding criteria of verification and evaluation of the ability of each supplier to provide products that are compliant with requirements.

Components

The components to be used in the systems are selected through suitable technical verification of function, quality, reliability, and hardware and software compatibility.

Research & Development

During the research and development phase, the product prototypes are subjected to testing of electrical, mechanical and environmental stress to ensure wide margins of functional safety that allow use in critical, harsh environments such as industrial and professional applications.

Testing

Before they are placed on the market, all products undergo evaluation and laboratory testing to check compliance with required standards for CE marking and, if required, for obtaining marks from international standards organizations.

Controls

Upon arrival in Asem plants, all purchased products undergo incoming controls to ensure they meet required and stated specifications.

Burn-in

All the electronic boards, after the assembly, are tested functionally and undergo cycles of burn-in in the thermal chamber verifying the functionality of the card in the whole stated temperature range.

Trials

All the electronic boards, after the assembly, are tested functionally and undergo cycles of burn-in in the thermal chamber verifying the functionality of the card in the whole stated temperature range.

Final check

Prior to shipment, each product/system is checked in detail to ensure it corresponds to the client's order.
