Indoor/Outdoor Enclosures, Rack/Sub-rack/Chassis and Fully Integrated Control Systems

Viasystems has developed the most complete vertically integrated Electro-Mechanical Solutions for our customers. These capabilities begin with design and prototyping services within the production operations that smoothly transition to full electro-mechanical system manufacturing. Our vertical capabilities also include sheet metal fabrication, backplane assembly, system integration, cable assembly, bus bar manufacture, full systems test and logistics for a complete solution supporting sub-system and full system integration requirements. In addition, our solutions are enhanced through Viasystems’ global supply chain and support services that are focused on optimizing flexibility and cost across our operations.

Electro-Mechanical Solutions

Viasystems’ E-M Solutions leverage our vertical model, under-one-roof capabilities in low-cost regions. We answer our customers’ needs through our regional manufacturing and engineering capabilities located in North America, Europe and China. We provide the highest levels of technology and technical support while operating as a global enterprise from the standpoints of engineering, supply chain, program management and manufacturing operations. Viasystems supports the entire life cycle of a product from design to design for manufacturing efficiency to prototyping to low-cost, high-volume production.

Electro-Mechanical Integration

Viasystems’ electro-mechanical integration solutions include all the “mission- critical” building block components that support our customers’ products and requirements. These system components include the following:

Rack/Subrack/Chassis Systems

Viasystems produces a range of rack, sub-rack and chassis systems to house revenue-generating products. Precision sheet metal sub-rack and chassis systems mount into standard 19” or 23” indoor racks or integrate into standard or custom indoor or outdoor enclosures. Viasystems has experience in designing to global rack standards including EIA-310-D, GR-63-CORE and IEC 297.

Fan Assemblies/Fan Tray Systems

Fan tray systems are integrated into chassis systems and/or outdoor enclosures to ensure the correct thermal management of revenue-generating equipment.

Cable Assembly and Harness

Cable assembly and harness is another specialty that incorporates our “Under One Roof” capability. Our process capabilities include:

  • Variable and fixed-length cables
  • Multiple solder stations
  • Automated crimping, cutting, stripping and termination.
  • Electronic welding and molding capabilities
  • Testing including but not limited to: Hi Pot, IR, voltage, cold resistance and completed assembly
  • Quality systems ISO 9000-2008, ISO 14001, TL 9000-H, TS 16949-2002
