Development & Engineering
The mechanical engineers within our engineering department develop tooling for manufacturing complex parts and assemblies. Our system engineers translate the product requirements into system development specifications for functional and dedicated qualification tools. Our goal is to have all AAE products comply with the specifications our customers require.
Our Automation Platforms
We provide turnkey, custom-made printing and assembly automations under the brandname Grauel. By offering various automation platforms, Continuous Motion (CMS), Indexing Motion System (IMS) and Flexible Motion System (FMS), we are able to provide our customers with tailor fit solutions.
FMS Machine platform
The Flexible Motion System does what it says: it guarantees maximum flexibility! The key in FMS is the fact that the product carriers are independently controlled, which enables processing of different cycle times within a single machine. We offer machine building blocks under our brandname Grauel that can easily be changed and tooled up with different printing and assembly processes. The platform controls are decentralised, enabling the operator to switch to different products quickly, easily and safely.
The FMS platform is ideal in low-volume high-mix situations.
Our Printing and Assembly Technologies
Our technology regards printing and assembly, but also printing and assembly combined in one machine. This results in compact automations, efficient in-line production and therefore very low manufacturing costs per product.
Our High Tech Cleanroom
Since we run a high tech ISO class 7 cleanroom for our assembly department, we know what it takes to make (printing and assembly) machines operable in our customers’ cleanroom environment.
Together we make it easy to access and ultra clean.
Particles: in gas XCDA and ultra-pure water. Residual Gas Analysis. Blacklight inspection in a dedicated controlled room.
Pushing the boundaries of technology together with my colleagues and surprising the customer is the best thing there is!
Niels van Vroonhoven
Designing, engineering and assembling machines is part of our DNA. With our highly skilled mechanics, mechanical, electrical, software and process engineers, we assemble a wide range of devices according to our customers’ specifications as well as unique, 100% custom-made ’specials’.
What I enjoy the most? Facing new challenges everyday!
Our project approach is V-model based, which is a perfect guaranteed start, should you require a GAMP validation trajectory. It is all about minimising patient risk and showing a well-automated manufacturing practice that covers all project stages: DQ, IQ, OQ and PQ.
Our Key Technologies
Our continuous investment in people, the most up-to-date technology and unmanned manufacturing guarantees that we are as productive, cost-efficient and innovative as possible.
We understand our customers’ DNA. Developing a manufacturing process with our engineers and manufacturing experts results in secured product delivery.
Our Key Technologies enable us to manufacture and assemble highly complex products by using the following techniques:
Intermediate and final control takes place in our fully equipped and conditioned measuring department. Our measuring experts verify component dimensions by using touch and optical methods, all within the micron range.
Getting the space and trust to do what's best for you and to develop yourself while surrounded by great colleagues: that's AAE.
Our helpdesk is ready to assist you with all your questions about the machine, spare parts, service, upgrades or process. We can also provide a maintenance contract for the machine. If you interested in more information about the machine, please request training. We also offer consulting and sample printing. To keep the machine in perfect condition, we can monitor it and make recommendations for preventing downtime.
I do everything to enable our customers to reach their objectives with our machines, so they look back with satisfaction to their collaboration with AAE.
