A full service company, on time and on budget
Flexworks is a one-stop electronics product development and manufacturing company offering a full range of services from initial feasibility studies to full mass production and beyond. We do everything from start to finish – and everything in between. In short we design, develop prototypes and manage both production and delivery. In addition, we carry out trials, tests and certification, and manage system integration for your final customers. In a nutshell, we fulfil all of your requirements in order to deliver a fully functioning product in the promised time scale – at a competitive price.
If you have an idea, we can make it happen
Not only do we make sure that the specification meets the formal requirements specified for a product, we also propose ways to make the product better and more cost effective.
Based on the initial specification, we work with the customer on:
- Mechanical and cosmetic design
- Electronic design
- Embedded software design
- Software design
- Packaging design (where required)
Before we start production, we usually build prototypes for evaluation with the customer. The prototypes are assessed and adjusted until all issues are resolved – if any. Before pilot production commences we also develop test instructions and quality insurance protocols.
We make sure that the product receives all the approvals needed for the customer’s market. We are familiar with approvals for Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. We have in-house resources for many tests and for others we work with various testing facilities across the world. Some of the approvals we manage are:
- CE Europe
- CQC, Industrial China
- CCC, Consumer China
- California Proposition 65
- UL, North America
- ETL, North America
- ISO 7637
- Li-lon battery safety approvals
- Li-lon battery packaging approvals
- Certification for explosive environments, including ATEX, FM, IECEx and CSA
- Vibration and mechanical shock
When all approvals – both mandatory and voluntary – have been obtained, and the customer has signed off on the product, we continue with pre-production, and then mass production.
We can also help you in the early stages of innovation either with system designs services, overall product design evaluation or proof of concept development for specification refinement. We are happy to provide these services from our Stockholm office, either as part of a larger development project, or as a separate consulting service.
A dedication to quality
We handle every aspect of production from Surface-Mount Technology (SMT) lines to final assembly and testing. One thing that sets us apart from many other Chinese manufacturing facilities is our dedication to quality and the close collaboration between development and production. This means we have fully automated, tailored test equipment in production developed together with the product to maximize yield, minimize cost and improve quality.
Our factory in China can handle both small volumes and large-scale production. We live by our promise to work cost-effectively and always supply high-quality products.
Our production is approved to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHAS 18001:2007 – Quality Certified by NQA in the United Kingdom. We also hold several other quality certificates, including UL, CCC, CQC and ETL. We can also handle our customers’ specialized factory approval requirements, including:
- ATEX and other safety standards related to explosion risk
- Clean room production down to Class 100
- High Vacuum Equipment
In addition we handle all aspects of sourcing, incoming component verification and specialized sub-contractors. We also take care of shipping logistics globally by air and sea.
Because we take care of everything from A to Z, we can also maintain the product during production and implement any modifications and improvements as necessary during the product’s service life.
