Mercury Marine OptiMax Engine Oil Pump

Engine Oil Pump Mercury OptimaxEDL turnkey mass manufactured and tested a complex, 7-port, high-precision, mechanical oil pump for Mercury Marine which had been designed by Orbital Corporation Limited. The oil pump generated minute levels of oil output achieved by using components manufactured to extremely tight tolerances (some requiring optically-aided inspection). During this multi-year production program, EDL delivered over 40,000 oil pumps each year for use on Mercury Marine OptiMax outboard engines and maintained 100% on-time delivery and quality (zero defects) ratings.

Headlight Actuator Control Modules (HACOMS) for Guide Corporation/General Motors Corporation

Headlight Actuator Control ModuleGuide Corporation, Anderson, Indiana outsourced their mass manufacturing production line for HACOMS to EDL. The HACOM is an electro-mechanical device comprised of a PCB assembly installed into an injection molded housing sealed shut with butyl rubber compound. The HACOM electronics activate a small motor which opens and closes the front headlights. EDL designed and employed new functional testing systems and mechanical assembly apparatus and used automated assembly techniques to provide turnkey, dock-to-stock manufacture of 40,000 to 80,000 HACOMS each year for use on all new GM Corvette and Firebird vehicles. EDL achieved 100% quality (zero defects) and 100% on-time delivery ratings over the program’s multi-year lifespan.

Installed into HP Laser Jet Printers manufactured by Canon, the assemblies were manufactured turnkey, tested and delivered dock-to-stock on a Just-In-Time (JIT) delivery basis. EDL each year received 100% on-time delivery ratings over the program’s 9 year life, and earned Canon’s Outstanding Supplier Award in 1994 and 1996.


"I wanted to say thanks for over 10 years of fantastic service. It's rare to find an assembly company that can do prototyping and handle medium to large scale production. When I first started my company I was doing work on a small scale and now it's rare not to have a product in the cue for assembly. The level of service has not changed. I'm always impressed with the quality of the assembly. Rarely ever an issue, but if there is you are always on top of figuring a solution to the problem. Read more ...
