Quality Through Commitment

Here at Liberty Electronics®, our quality strategy revolves around the needs of our customers and their specific product needs. Through operating with Lean Manufacturing principles and utilize Six Sigma tools across the value stream, Liberty strives to achieve zero defects on all of our assemblies.

Continuous improvement is our priority. Certified Six Sigma black belts are on staff, and projects are worked under the auspices of our Operational Excellence Council in areas such as process control, defect prevention, cycle time reductions, and corrective actions.

Quality Through Automation

Quality and validation checkpoints are embedded into the process of building every assembly to ensure the highest amount of efficiency and functionality. Multiple validations and tests are performed to ensure our products meet our customer specifications and high-quality standards. All of our tooling and machinery is consistently monitored and calibrated to ensure accuracy and precision.

Automation plays a key role in reducing variation in our assemblies. Liberty utilizes various high-end machines to automate processes that otherwise could slow down productivity and increase variation. This machinery assists with processes such as:

  • Cutting and stripping wires
  • Pull-testing
  • Inspecting pin retention
  • Crimping contacts
  • Twisting wires
  • Taping
  • Applying shrink tubing
  • Circuit testing
  • Testing crimp quality.
