Exeltech was founded in 1990, based on the philosophy that efficiencies in the manufacturing process through product design, coordinated with facility layout, was paramount to productivity and the key to a quality product. Their mission is to provide leadership electronics and superior customer service through the merging of innovative designs with advanced manufacturing technology.
Quality through design for manufacturability is a primary goal. Utilizing surface mount technology, all design and manufacturing are performed in their facility, located in Fort Worth, Texas. "Pick and place" machines are set up with parts that are standard to all models, allowing for zero setup time and eliminating errors created when reloading or setting up machines. Only large capacitors and magnetics are placed by hand, in an effort to minimize human error through automation. Hand soldering is eliminated through the use of vapor phase reflow. Point to point wiring is eliminated with extensive use of PCB's to perform interconnectivity functions. The use of extruded aluminum for mechanics has reduced the number of nut/bolt and screw points to one-fourth that of previous products, while increasing heat dissipation efficiency and lending a functional form factor to the product.
While design of the products to comply with automated manufacturing processes continues, Exeltech's people remain the most important part of the quality equation. All employees go through a six month internship before becoming full-time staff members. All employees are cross trained for multi-task capability. Using a PULL system, each station performs a quality check on the performance of the previous station. Data for first time yield and DPU is recorded and analyzed by each station and test bench in an ongoing effort to yield a zero defect process. Upon final assembly, all products then proceed to A.L.T. for "accelerated life testing" to minimize "infant mortality". Packaging and shipping procedures are constantly evaluated to reduce damage.
All repairs are performed at the factory for quality feedback and input for future design. The net result of these philosophies is a line of products that demonstrates a MTBF (mean time between failure) in excess of 20 years and offers the most competitively priced true sine inverters available anywhere.
Their commitment to quality and total customer satisfaction has allowed Exeltech to become innovators in the DC to AC power product market. A few of their "firsts" include: The smallest, lightest high frequency PWM sine wave inverter, The first "N+1" redundant inverter systems, "Hot" swappable capability and "modular" design
Exeltech's many satisfied customers include:AT&T, Brookhaven National Labs, Digital, Equipment Corporation, Motorola, MCI, GTE Government Systems, Numerous federal and state agencies.
Exeltech is found quite literally, around the world. They also provide back up power for the communications room in every U.S. Embassy worldwide.
