Charging stations: Inspection and rework of individual parts to avoid delays in final assembly
Charging station manufacturer can meet ambitious launch schedule thanks to highly flexible deployment of the EuroQ team
Urgently needed individual parts of charging stations shipped from China had to be unpacked at the port in Hamburg, inspected, reworked at several locations with specialist personnel and packed for onward transport.
The customer’s challenge
The manufacturer of the charging stations had outsourced the production of the individual parts to a Chinese supplier. In order not to jeopardize the launch during final assembly at the factory, the individual parts were to be checked upon arrival at the port. A number of the individual parts, some of which weighed several tons, had already been stored at the logistics service provider (LDL).
Staff with different qualifications were required to inspect and rework batteries / inverters / high-voltage circuit boards / coolant lines / surfaces and other components.
The demands on the quality service provider were high: skilled personnel with experience in the field of high-voltage, fault analysis/assessment and rework, a lot of flexibility and professional coordination between the Chinese supplier, the logistics service provider and the manufacturer of the charging stations.
Within a very short period of time, we assembled a team of experienced EuroQ high-voltage specialists for assessment, testing and rework.
This team was supplemented with additional specialists and flexibly deployed at the various locations. This allowed us to quickly resolve additional complaints that arose during the course of the project.
Our project manager took over the intensive process coordination on site and the constant exchange with the logistics service provider, the supplier (from China) and the manufacturer.
The customer received professional reporting, including itemization, to track defect patterns, sorting and rework, and to document the course of the project.
Our numerous locations in Germany and the USA are located in close proximity to the automotive manufacturers’ production plants.
We help suppliers and OEMs achieve their quality goals – with our comprehensive expertise and broad portfolio.
