To Win The Chinese In Production of Electronics

Can Russian electronics compete with the Chinese one? At the market of safety systems it is reality – more than 90% of fire detection devices and controllers for them are produced in Russia. This segment is one of the few where appeared strong companies with their own production, development, integration, distrubution and service.
That is why we go to see how these safety systems are produced at the largest and the most famous in the coutry producer that functions at the secret space research institute in Korolev.

At the start of the line is a laser marking apparatus. It applies a unique 2D code on the board that is tracked during the whole production process.
Having read the code of the board of a defective device they may trace by whom and when it was produced, which components were used.

Nearby is the section of metal boxes assembly. Mainly they are backup power supplies with a storage battery and an electronics board. Ready boxes are hung and tested under load. Modules of test load are above.

Solder paste is applied in the printer through a template. Then the robot takes electric details out of the reels and puts them on this solder paste like on glue. The board with the details moves to the furnace on the conveyor where the paste melts and turns into solder alloy reliably connecting ends of the details with strips on the board.
Nothing difficult except the fact that an average size of such detail is 1×0,5 mm and the robot’s operational speed is up to 5 components a second.

The test laboratory. The main exhobit – a smoke chamber. Rare and precious. It’s a strange thing in fact, it can be activated only once. Misoperation will turn the alarm system and firefighting on and cause real damage. But it’ll be even worse if it works late or won’t work at all.

  1. Do Russians import the electronic parts or sensors for their famous jet fighters, space rockets, and missle
    system from other countries like Japan or EU? I don’t know much about it but I guess they produce most of them by themselves because they are for military use, so their electronical technology is as high as any western countries. But I think that mass manufacturing and commercializing technology advances more in western countries than in Russia, especially for domestic appliances.

  2. This is no-brainer. Fire safety systems require radioactive isotopes which are tightly controlled in the west.
    In Russia, you want Americium? No problem!
