WECON Products In Production

WECON, as one of the top players in Chinese Automation world,  is dedicated to providing cheap, reliable, and easy-to-use products for the automation industry around the world. However, WECON itself never takes a easy path in making their products. Here’s the simplified procedure WECON follows like a law behind the scenes to make sure its products flawless as always.

1. Making the boards.
WECON hardware engineers design its boards then outsources it to a professional and dedicated company to actually make it.

2. Parts Testing

The first thing after getting parts including boards, displays etc delivered is to give it a thorough test. Any faults, even though only minor ones, will see the parts returned to its suppliers according to the contracts.

3. Getting protection

After the test, boards up to standard need to be painted on both sides to protect them from moisture, dust and statics. Then painted boards are put in to oven at 90℃ for 1-2 minutes. The result fluorescence on the boards after this step, can been seen when put under ultraviolet light.


4. Assembling

This step sees displays, touch screens, boards, frames are put together.

Fluid dispenser locks all the electronic parts right on its spot, no movements could take them off.

The yellowish high temperature glue on the boards keep away any moisture and water drops from getting into FPC (Flexible Printed Circuits). Then software is loaded up before another round of thorough test.

5. Aging at room temperature

After the assembling, the products are put on a test run for 4-8 hours to pick up any possible problematic products caused by poor soldering, black screen, communication error etc.

6. Packaging line
This step sees the products going through its final stage before being taken out of the floor. The default software system is loaded, date and time is set up, overall quality and performance is tested, protection film is put on, barcode is stuck inside, then it’ll get cleaned and boxed. The internal barcode as its identification and all the information about the final product will be put in a database in case anything happens during its lifetime so that WECON can easily find out what’s in it. 


7. Random quality check

Wecon has a written rule that states at least 20% of its products on the shelf need to be randomly chosen to go through a head-to-toe test. It’s just one of a few ways for WECON management team to know if they are doing a good job on the floor.

PLC goes through a similar procedure while being produced. Here are a few pictures taken of its production line.
