Evansville, Indiana – Evana Automation Specialists, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and leading Systems Integrator and builder of custom, automated assembly and test systems, recently received a contract from a Tier 1 automotive supplier to provide a custom automated assembly system that will assemble and test ABS brake control modules.

The system will press circuit boards, apply conformal coating to components, visually verify coating application, apply UV cure coating, feed and laser weld lids, perform leak and functional tests, as well as print and apply labels to the brake modules. Modules will receive complete serialization and traceability throughout the entire assembly process. Press data and test values will be captured and tied to the part serial number. Stations will be designed with quick change tooling to simplify processing of addition or different products in the future. The system is scheduled for delivery in February 2014.
