Example 1: Transport For London (TFL)

Our customer required a range of our services for their Deep Tube on the Central Line, namely:

  • Train Management Control System (Master and Slave)
  • Repair and review obsolescence
  • Repair and overhaul of electronic materials removing obsolescence
  • Replacement of components evaluated as prone to fail (short and long term)
  • Re-Manufacture of LRU (Line Replacement Unit) complete mechanical and electrical
  • Identify and service LU functional test equipment, validation of re-manufactures
  • Qualify with Ealing & Hainault depots.

With the successful completion of the project, TFL reported an increase in reliability to 98.7%. Long-term ROI was assured, with the project completed in 18 weeks and repairs returned to site within 2 weeks.

Example 2: Thales (France)

Our customer required us to re-manufacture assembly against a sample PCB for a radar system. Our challenge was to:

  • Validate electronic signature, download software and firmware
  • Create Gerber data
  • Create a manufacturing pack
  • Develop a functional test process
  • Create sample and qualify
  • Test validation on site France.

The re-manufacture and overhaul evaluation was completed within 12 weeks and the radar system is fully functional and operational.

Example 3: UK MOD

We recently re-manufactured a sample PCB for the Challenger Tank. Our challenge was to:

  • Create a circuit Diagram
  • Validate electronic signature
  • Create a manufacturing pack
  • Develop a functional test process
  • Create sample and qualify
  • Test validation.
