The Jungbecker Principle

How a Concept Becomes a Product

CExcellent solutions are developed in close dialogue with the customer. The customer has the result in mind, while we work on design and function. We contribute our experience and take care of product development and engineering, while looking far outside the box. For us, providing advice is about making our know-how transparent to help our customers find optimal solutions.

1. Customer Request / Idea

It all starts with considering what functions are to be fulfilled and what specifications a component must meet: whether for an extensive optical element, a display light, a sensor for a vehicle drive train or a completely different optical or electronic application.

2. Optimisation

We analyse the specifications and consider what the optimal solution might look like and what we can contribute from our years of experience. We also take a look at the extended processes into which the products are to be integrated and how this can be perfectly fit into the customer’s production.

3. Design

After meeting the requirements specifications, we take care of design and develop prototypes, while maintaining an ongoing dialogue with the customer.

4. Tooling

After approval, we take care of toolmaking and setting up the manufacturing facility, which is precisely geared to the requirements of the product.

5. Series Production

Series production for Jungbecker means combining different process steps as fully-automated as possible.
Metal and plastic processing, soldering electrical and electronic components such as actuators and sensors,
and the encapsulation of highly sensitive components with plastic. Test processes integrated into production ensure consistently high quality. A manufacturing process example follows.

Step 1:

A leadframe made of zinc-coated brass is stamped and encapsulated in a plastic substrate in the first step.

Step 2:

The electronic components are then inserted into the slots of the plastic substrate and soldered or welded to the leadframe.

Step 3:

After putting the light conductor in place, the entire assembly is encapsulated in plastic and protected against mechanical influences.

Step 4:

After final functional testing, the module is marked as inspected and packaged.
