Melecs - Making Electronics Smart
Electronic components from Melecs can be found in control units and LED applications in the cars of international premium manufacturers as well as in household appliances of the European market leader. Along with tailor-made products and solutions for the automotive, lighting and white goods segments, Melecs develops and produces electronic modules and components in the areas of industry and communications such as controls for escalators or energy-efficient heating systems. More than 90 percent of the sales of Melecs are attained with customers outside Austria.
Medium-sized and large volumes of electronic modules and devices are built in the highly automated production facilities at Siegendorf/Austria and Györ/Hungary. The plant in Lenzing/Austria is an excellence center for industrial applications with low-volume/high-mix requirements. Since 2016, we produce at the newly built plant in Wuxi/China for the support of global customers.
Melecs’ industrial customers rely today on state-of-the-art KNX building technology, compact control units for escalators, high-performance ECUs and elevator door controls. Melecs has many years of experience in the development and production of reliable and rugged products. The use of preferred components allows for products that are attractive in terms of price as well.
In product development, Melecs offers top-of-the-class know-how with engine control units (ECUs) for brushless DC engines, reluctance motors and asynchronous drives. Melecs compact control units have been in use worldwide for many years. Features such as SIL compliance, bus connections, safety relays, state-of-the-art processor architecture and compact dimensions are highly attractive for good reason to customers. Industrial products require variant diversity, fast response to fluctuations in demand and attractive prices. Thanks to cutting-edge placement machines and intelligent planning software, Melecs is able to implement a low-volume/high-mix production. End-to-end traceability guarantees seamless process monitoring – the prerequisite for a high level of quality.
