Box build, testing and proto­types from Orbit One

Orbit One and CG Drives have a long-standing colla­bo­ration spanning many years. Orbit One manufactures circuit boards, handles complete box builds and performs both general and customer-specific tests, as well as development and production of proto­types.

About the customer

In Sweden, CG Drives & Automation makes products designed to control the operation of electric motors. The products ensure energy-efficient and reliable operation and can be found in areas such as water treatment, material handling, cranes, conveyor belts and various shipping and marine appli­ca­tions.

“The things that stand out are Orbit One’s service, customer focus and well developed colla­bo­ration with their suppliers”

“At CG Drives & Automation, we focus on final instal­lation and testing of our products, and we place great value on being able to receive help from our suppliers with other aspects of our business. With Orbit One’s help, we reduce the complexity of our production and logistics, and we are able to utilise their machine park to achieve desired levels of quality and efficiency. As a smaller manufacturer with a large electronics content in our products, we do not have the possi­bility of building our own automated circuit board assembly process. Our colla­bo­ration with Orbit One goes back many years and is based on a foundation of compe­titive pricing, reliable deliveries and good quality. The things that stand out are Orbit One’s service, customer focus and well developed colla­bo­ration with their suppliers. During the pandemic, Orbit One succeeded in maintaining delivery relia­bility in a better manner than many others. When the component shortages were at their worst, we found a way of working together to ensure that we could maintain a reaso­nable level of production. We helped each other on many occasions, and we maintained close commu­ni­cation with good monitoring and follow-ups.”
