Custom made sensors

SMPE opens new manufacturing plant in Nottingham

Published:  03 July, 2013

A new 3,000sq ft electronic manufacturing facility at Standard Motor Products Nottingham HQ is making a custom programme of components, starting with Intermotor and Fuel Parts branded air mass meters. The electronics used have been designed in-house and are said to achieve very accurate output tolerances.

Engineering Manager, John Wass, said: "Aftermarket units can be poorly calibrated; by subjecting our components to a full parametric test we check every parameter and print a test report or quality certificate that goes out in the box. In cheaper alternatives, the electronic signal output curves are not correct - 7 times out of 10 it might work but in reality, it only takes that one winter day."

The company states it has a 'no compromise attitude to quality' and that its testing schedule includes recognised tests that OE manufacturers use.

The production of MAP and ABS sensors will be rolled out in the coming months.
