Producing: ACTIA manufacturing
The ACTIA group handles the production of its products in its factories and opens its production sites to other customers such as Electronics Manufacturing Services - E.M.S. The group has therefore developed leading industrial expertise in the automotive, aerospace, rail, health and industry sectors. The E.M.S activity now brings together almost 900 employees and is enhanced by the various services offered by the group on an international level particularly with purchasing, procurement and in-service support. ACTIA thus positions itself close to its customers with a dual commitment: INNOVATE & PRODUCE.
Original Design Manufacturing - ODM
Backed by our integrated engineering, we are able to act quickly and ahead of time to develop complete products and systems: routing assistance, placement, technological decisions, design suitability and production process. The combined know-how within our design offices, supported by substantial investment in Research and Development, is intrinsic to our industrial performance.
All of the processes and technologies for assembling circuit boards, lead and lead-free reflows, adhesive application, x-rays, multi-purpose wave soldering or selective soldering, robotised or manual selective coating are controlled within our production plants. RoHs – RoHs2 (logo and texts see keywords).
Our production strategy for assembled and tested elements is modular, from a production line dedicated to one product, to a flexible multi-product station.
Tests & Debugging
The test strategy is developed in the early design phases. It is improved by the result of the Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis with the aim of monitoring our production and offering every guarantee to our customers. It is based on AOI, mobile probe testers, ICT and functional testers, Rapid Temperature Cycling thermal test chambers. ACTIA is developing dedicated functional testers.
Supply chain & Logistics
The ACTIA group’s logistics know-how covers all of the cycles: procurements, transport, customs, regular and ad-hoc flows, Vendor Management Inventory. Our teams manage the entirety of the Supply Chain from our Front office production sites (sales administration, planning) to our customers or our customers’ customers. Since 2011, we have been certified as an Authorised Economic Operator (OEA).
ACTIA’s international expansion has allowed for greater proximity with the global markets. Substantial purchasing volumes negotiated with distributors or manufacturers, enable us to be competitive in all of our markets. We are able to adapt to our customers’ requirements in terms of suppliers, whilst proactively proposing alternative sources: the group’s volume of annual purchases is thus higher than 100 million euros.
In-Service Support & After-Sales Service
The ACTIA group offers specific know-how in ensuring durability, for the In-Service Support of critical electronic systems. This department brings together various skills centres that may be called upon when looking for a comprehensive or partial solution: obsolescence monitoring, repairs, redesigning, long-term strategic storage, etc. In addition, our repair centre brings together expert technicians in charge of repairing our products and those of our customers. A specific area is dedicated to aerospace repairs (Part 145).
