  • Harsh environmental testing
  • Laser printing the date codes on products for personnel recognition

Services Performed

  • Customized design, manufacture, and production (smallest product dimension: 41L x 28W x 18.7H mm)
  • Waterproof function complies with IP67
  • Laser printing the 2D barcode on the products to be scanned by machine

Results

  • Now a tier 2 qualified supplier
  • Products have already been used in some well-known car factories: GM, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Nissan, Honda
