We have recently significantly increased our design, prototyping and manufacturing capability by transforming our production into an Industry 4.0 electronics manufacturing facility. Automation and interconnectedness have been the primary goals for Elexon, in developing its world-class Industry 4.0 manufacturing facility, offering unparalleled precision and manufacturing standards. All of our products are designed, manufactured and tested in house, ensuring Elexon has ultimate control of custom builds, quality and lead times, while maintaining a confidential and hands-on approach.
The leading difference for Elexon, is its ability to design, engineer, prototype, test and manufacture complex electronics in-house, from high-precision custom PCB boards assembly to software and final assembly.
Today, Elexon is a trusted supplier of electronics for world-class companies such as Rio Tinto, Newcrest, Volvo, Aurizon, Aim Lab, Agilent and EM Solutions.
Quality in electronics design and manufacture
For Elexon Electronics, achieving excellent standards of quality is essential. That part is not unusual, however, we need to achieve this at the same time as achieving excellent efficiency. That’s why the transformation of our once conventional production line into Industry 4.0 manufacturing facility where all parts of the process are connected and communicate, completely changed our standards and capability level.
Elexon’s quality Management Systems have been successfully maintained since its introduction in 2007 and the company has met its three-yearly ISO 9001 audits with exceptional results. Implementation of those quality tools has allowed Elexon to embed resilience and agility into their strategies, elevated operational efficiency, enhanced technical analysis and document control.
Only a few years ago, Elexon Electronics decided to expand into new industries such as defence, IoT and sensor technologies. These sectors are rapidly developing, creating engineering and manufacturing opportunities. They are also highly regulated and not easily accessible. By achieving ISO 14001 and AS 9100D certifications Elexon Electronics has continued to build on our reputation and deliver even greater quality to our customers from the defence, mining and other niche industries.
Environmental Management System
Sustainable electronics engineering and manufacturing is of critical importance to Elexon and a key component of Elexon’s social responsibility. For this reason, we have implemented Environmental Management Standards and became ISO 14001 certified.
Being an ethical company, Elexon Electronics truly cares about the environment. By formalizing what we are already committed to, we have strengthen our dedication to our existing and future customers.
ISO 14001 is a voluntary standard that sets out criteria for implementing an effective environmental management system. It guides businesses in systematizing and improving their environmental management efforts and promotes methods to protect the environment and contribute to a sustainable future. Its framework helps an organization achieve its environmental goals through consistent review, evaluation, and improvement of its environmental performance.
Electronics industry and its products have a higher-than-average impact on today’s environment. That’s why Elexon Electronics takes topics such as waste elimination, effective and efficient production processes and smart and responsible product design considering the whole lifecycle of our product, very seriously.
Quality Management Systems
Management Systems and their successful installation in company processes has always been a key focus for Elexon Electronics.
Elexon Electronics has had ISO 9001 accreditation since 2007, just one year after establishing the company. Quality management and continuous improvement are in our DNA.
AS9100D certification allows us to design, manufacture and service printed circuit board assemblies, including embedded firmware and mechanical enclosures, for aerospace applications. Elexon Electronics has taken the extra step of achieving certification with Design and Development included in the scope of accreditation. We were awarded AS 9100D certification in May 2022.
Our new smart factory is a game-changer not only for Elexon but also for Australian advanced manufacturing in general. Thanks to this transformation enabled by the government support, Elexon can grow locally and extend our reach globally.
The main focus of the AS 9100D is the customer. With our current ISO 9001 certification, we focus on quality processes and product quality development by expanding to AS 9100D is, we must now report our quality metrics from a customer point of view. For example, reporting on on-time deliveries, product conformity and customer satisfaction, and taking appropriate actions when planned results are not achieved. This is how we meet customer and regulatory requirements, provide vital traceability and promote and evidence a culture of continual improvement.
Intrinsically-safe product manufacture is one of core Elexon’s competencies.
The IECEx quality systems requirements outline compliance required across a range of standards, with Elexon required to comply with Ex quality manufacturing standard IEC/ISO 80079-34 (‘explosive atmospheres’ manufacture) standards.
In order to be able to deliver products operating in LPG monitoring environment, Elexon Electronics gained “ia – intrinsically safe” certification for IEC 60079-11 standard in a record time of 3 months and proved that Elexon’s team is able to go beyond customers’ expectations and our value “we work well with others” is based on true.
