Empirically good

Made in Germany

EMS is the technical term for “Electronic Manufacturing Services” and refers to the complete contract manufacturing of electronic assemblies, devices and systems – from development, PCB and cable assembly to test concepts and worldwide delivery. We also serve this segment at Reichhardt Elektronik GmbH and, unlike others, we do this in Germany.

The electronics production in Lautertal-Engelrod (Vogelsbergkreis/Hesse) was founded in the 1970s. In the last years a comprehensive modernization of the production lines and a continuous ESD protection in all production areas took place. With the integration into the Reichhardt Group, cable assembly was relocated  to Engelrod. Reichhardt GmbH Steuerungstechnik has been serving the industry from the Hofgut Ringelshausen for more than 35 years with innovative developments for agriculture and the construction machinery sector.

As specialists for mobile applications, we are predestined for large complex cable harnesses, as well as for small connection adapters. In addition, we have perfected cable protection, especially through braiding technology.
Switch cabinet construction
Our expertise lies in particular in the production of complex assemblies for mobile applications in agricultural and construction machinery.
SMT manufacturing
In surface-mount technology we process components from 0.4 mm x 0.2 mm (01005) to 99 mm x 99 mm. Max. processable PCB size 700 mm x 460 mm.
THT manufacturing
In Through Hole Technology we assemble axial, radial and mechanical components, the component preparation is done according to the requirements of the assembly. The assembly is completed by means of wave soldering.
Cleaning & coating
The protective coating preserves the assembly from corrosion and mechanical damage, and also improves electrical insulation. The preceding cleaning removes even the smallest impurities, as well as flux residues.
Electronics assembly
At ESD-compatible workstations, we assemble, solder, mount, paint, encapsulate and calibrate; upon request, we also carry out climate and function tests.
Test procedure
Depending on the product and application, we carry out various test procedures, such as AOI (automatic optical inspection), as well as functional tests according to your specifications using test equipment provided or in-house testers designed in-house.
Quality assurance & test engineering
Quality assurance is carried out by means of computer-aided low-voltage wiring, connection, short-circuit, component and function tests.

Satisfied EMS customers

Testimonial EMS
bluMartin GmbH
Our experience with Reichhardt is that they respond to our requests flexibly and quickly. For us, this is what makes a competent and reliable EMS partner. It is also important to us that we can continuously supply our customers with our products and therefore we appreciate that our logistic requirements are implemented so well even more. Due to the production with a modern machinery and the service concept that runs through the whole company, we can also be sure to deliver high quality products to our customers in time.

Assembly in SMT & THT

Modern production for prototypes and small series. Set-up changes are carried out very flexibly and quickly with optimization strategies in the software and hardware area. All processes are carried out according to RoHs guidelines.

PCB assembly

Attention to detail

The components that can be processed in our modern SMT production line range from 0.4 mm x 0.2 mm (01005) to 99 mm x 99 mm. The maximum PCB size that can be processed in SMT production is 700 mm x 460 mm. In order to be able to keep set-up changes very short in terms of time, we have implemented optimization strategies and can therefore react flexibly and quickly in both the hardware and software areas.

In THT production, we assemble axial, radial and mechanical components, which we adapt to the requirements of the assembly in our component preparation department. After the assembly process, the printed circuit board and components are joined together by means of wave soldering. For heavy-duty connections, we rely on press-fit technology. These are particularly robust and fail-safe, which is especially important in high-frequency and high-current technology.

We are also happy to revise existing assemblies and devices for you or make adjustments with regard to standards and regulations. We accompany you in the technical advancement, in extensions, in the improvement of the manufacturing processes, including cost optimization and the support of component discontinuations

Assembly cleaning and coating

Protective coating protects the assembly from corrosion and mechanical damage, and also improves electrical insulation. Even complex, large-format assemblies with hard-to-reach areas are coated perfectly in just a few steps without providing additional data – automatically and uniformly.

We are also happy to help with the development of a coating-compatible design and the selection of coating systems. In addition, it is possible to automatically clean the assemblies prior to coating at the customer’s request. Thus, even the smallest impurities and residues of flux are removed from the assembly.

Robust for demanding use

Depending on the order, our fully automatic cable assembly is combined with semi-automatic or manual connector assembly and completed with the appropriate cable protection. We were able to perfect the sheathing with braided yarn, as it has proven itself in mobile automotive applications even in harsh conditions.

Better connections

E3-Cable to creat the cable plan
E3-Formboard to create the nail/draw boards
Geomagic Design to create the 3D CAD drawings

We know the acceptance criteria for electronic assemblies, their soldering materials and processes including rework, modification and repair, as well as those for printed circuit boards and for cable and harness assemblies. A qualified IPC trainer ensures that the criteria are met and that our employees are constantly kept up to date:

IPC A-600, IPC A-610, IPC J-STD-001, IPC-7711-7721, IPC WHMA-A-620

Depending on the product and application, we carry out different test procedures for quality assurance:
