Experience: I visited the factory where 120 phones are produced per minute

The Motorola structure as well as the Flex manufacturing facility remain in the very same school of Jaguariuna, some 2 hrs stroll from Sao Paolo. You learnt through Motorola, yet Flex is extremely not likely to have actually listened to. Flex has a manufacturing facility where around 120 phones are generated every min.

Simply put, Flex is a supplier with greater than 200,000 staff members worldwide, and also has a manufacturing facility in Timisoara (where they create elements for clinical tools, auto, and so on) that implements orders for all sort of suppliers like Motorola, Lenovo, Dell or HP.

At Jaguariuna, Flex generates just phones for Motorola. I had the chance to see exactly how a handful of elements come to be an item to utilize as well as enjoy, is not it?

It all begins with a plate where many of the parts are glued. Attract the boundary of the plate, position the elements on a paste, after that every little thing is passed with a stove via which all of these elements are glued.

There are parts such as adapters, transistors, cpus, etc. on strips such as old movie rolls: they are drew a little inside the device, after that the parts are glued to the best location. The extra (the location where the battery must stand) is reduced off, and also this results in the phone’s motherboard.

There is a procedure of examining the item to see if every little thing is all right. And also right here, a robotic does the task: it does loads of pictures per min and also can see if something is not.

I asked Flex supervisor that described the procedure if it was feasible to make a mobile phone like the Moto G7 just with individuals without devices. She began chuckling and also informed me it was difficult. “Look a little right here,” he informed me, and also prompted me to search in a magnifying glass affixed to a table.

I leaned over and also looked, yet I did not recognize what I was taking a look at. “That is not dirt, yet elements,” he states, as I check out the black factors before me. At a closer assessment I understood that what we were seeing was the extremely elements of a phone.

Guy as well as ladies were doing hand-operated job: attaching elements, linking cables, as well as so on. Some of the individuals were standing and also component resting on the chairs.

Calibration of the cam, display shades and so on is done instantly, and also individuals simply manage the procedure.

Next off, the batteries are placed in, the phones are glued, a material that safeguards the water phone, the phones are eliminated, after that placed in boxes.

Chargers, cords, as well as the software application are the one to be examined. All individuals are dealing, essentially, with this. Software program screening is made with a robotic developed by Flex, as well as a robotic hand gets the phone and after that links it via the USB-C port and also checks the os.

An even more comprehensive check can after that be made by individuals, to see if particular features are proper and so forth.

I was looking at the staff members as well as I believed they did not appear also satisfied. Every person was functioning in a group, doing one, finishing the various other.

In fact, there you can not leave when you wish to leave the task since that’s just how the job rate quits.

At this time, the plant can generate around 120 phones per min. At the time of the see, the Flex group was 10,000 systems behind.
