Unitron is a manufacturer of high-quality medical and industrial appliances. Unitron is active on various markets worldwide as an innovative partner of leading quality-oriented market players. Unitron’s core activity is developing and manufacturing complex mechatronic and electronic appliances.
Our work always starts with a product idea, a prototype or sometimes even with a complete product from our customer. Unitron then coordinates the service package to the customer’s request. Unitron’s strong involvement with the product is best expressed by the term “product ownership”. The principal does however always retain the intellectual property.
Unitron has a great track record in medical product development. We are a ISO13485-certified business; this knowledge is therefore fully embedded in the process. We of course also use this expertise in developing high-tech industrial products. Our areas of knowledge are in the fields of heat management, physiological and optical signal processing.
A Unitron Process Engineer is closely involved in the project. He concentrates together with a Test Engineer on developing test assemblies, setting up the production process and training production staff. Our fixed frameworks here are the customer’s quality requirements, the specific product properties, legislation and rules. It is within these boundaries that we create product-specific work cells in order to efficiently create high-quality products.
Unitron’s manufacturing concept is “Smart Production”. This involves maximum flexibility and minimum use of resources. A major plus point is that we can also achieve these properties with low production numbers.
We monitor production quality based on quality reports, workplace audits and periodic product reviews. These activities then lead to improvement actions.
A good distribution system is essential for producing and entering the market.
We can send products directly to the end customer on demand. Unitron offers the possibility of warehousing in IJzendijke. Safety stock, end products or specific components that need to be purchased in larger numbers can be stored in our warehouse. Our customized logistics systems contribute to a flexible and punctual delivery of final products to the customer.
We understand service as the maintaining of a product. This on one hand indicates necessary repairs and maintenance and on the other hand, our continuous improvement process.
Unitron is able to set up an RMA portal for customer repairs. The products can be registered and possibly returned from here. We will establish these processes in a service level agreement.
Unitron is a stable and financially healthy business with an extensive international network. As well as relations with businesses, we maintain intensive contact with leading research and knowledge institutions. This leads to business opportunities for our partners and possibilities for developing new relations. We advocate an environment in which cooperation in sharing knowledge are central.
Unitron’s quality system complies with ISO 13485 and since 2014, the requirements of Japan (Ordinance 169) and the United States (FDA).
Setting up one’s own certification is a difficult and time-consuming task for many businesses. With a view to this, we offer customers the option of launching their products under the umbrella of Unitron’s quality system. The customer itself only needs to comply with a limited number of requirements for this.
Confidence is an important basic point in the cooperation that Unitron is seeking. Confidence in one another and in the product. Our participation is expressed in intensive cooperation and in the possibility of bearing the risks of a project together.
The right Product Life Cycle Management enables us to keep a close eye on a product’s profitability and sustainable growth. In developing new product generations, we of course not only take into account the technical possibilities but also social developments, environmental effects and the continuing availability of the (scarce) raw materials.
Unitron has the following certifications: ISO 13485:2012 and Ministerial Ordinance 169. Our production department works according to the requirements of IPC-A-610D class 2.
At Unitron, both the Quality Assurance Department and the R&D Department have the relevant knowledge to guarantee the adherence to the laws and regulations.
