Our customer, a leading manufacturer of industrial molded case circuit breakers (MCCBs), needed to expand their final assembly capacity in the United States. To improve on quality and lead time, they decided to work with a local test specialist in their time zone to ensure reliable support. They called on Averna to design and build 4 stations to test different functionalities for multiple product variations. Test types include auxiliary, voltage drop, mechanical and dielectric and must take less than 60 seconds to complete.
