In-House Equipment Manufacturing for Connectors and Pins in the Automotive Industry

ept in-house equipment manufacturing combines a wide range of expertise, such as development, design, tool, and machine construction, as well as control and regulation technology with programming and electrical assembly at its Buching and Peiting locations.

The extensive range of expertise – combined with ept’s internal product and process development and the immediate proximity to production – are the cornerstones of ept’s connector manufacturing and its very high level of vertical integration.
This enables us as a company to achieve the greatest possible level of independence from external suppliers or service providers.
Departments that are upstream in the project can draw on the in-house equipment manufacture expertise during the product development and planning of the operating equipment. Toolmaking and equipment manufacture is also the first point of contact for production support and the extensive services required for this.

ept In-House Equipment Manufacturing is a partner for:

  • the creation of quotes for tools and machines,
  • feasibility studies and concept development, and
  • the design and implementation of innovation production solutions
We design and create tools and machines in our equipment manufacture department.

Early Error Prevention

Icon Fruehzeitige Fehlervermeidung white frei
We work using an FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) to ensure defects are prevented from an early stage – no matter whether in feasibility analysis, production of operating equipment, or prototyping.

Outstanding Quality

Icon Ausgezeichnete Qualitaet white frei
We are committed to the zero-defect target as specified by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF).
We have the lowest error rate in the entire market. We also guarantee you the lowest contingency risk and the avoidance of expensive line stoppages, combined with a high on-time delivery rate.

We have been able to improve the quality of our connectors ourselves and can assure you of optimum quality monitoring, thanks to the high level of vertical integration in our plants. This guarantee is backed up by a functioning quality and environmental management system that is ISO-9001, ISO-14001, and TS-16949 certified.

Secure Processes

Icon Sichere Prozesse white frei
Our continuous project management (APQP) for product and quality planning is anchored throughout the entire product creation process. We pay the utmost attention to risk minimization and quality right from the beginning of the cooperation, while taking into account your specifications and our experience.

We are ept and that is what we stand for
