Altyor has been in existence for almost 30 years. Our experience has enabled us to build a solid base of electronic (buttons, LEDs, etc.) and mechanical (screws, materials, etc.) references that we know to be reliable and long-lasting. These are also standard designs, such as the clipping process, which have been approved by our teams and have become Altyor standards. Within the knowledge management platform called Ask, we bring together all the bricks mastered by Altyor and made available to our customers. We also select recent technologies and take into account availability time as an important criterion for our electronic components (via Silicon Expert) in order to avoid rapid product obsolescence.
At Altyor, we systematically analyse product durability to ensure optimal product or material ageing and resistance through MTBF (mean time between failure) electronic board reliability calculations and qualification tests. For example, we endurance test products to ensure that they can withstand climatic or usage conditions.
We also design firmware that can be updated remotely to avoid product obsolescence. This allows our customers to upgrade their product, extend its life span or facilitate its return (refurbishment, repair).
Finally, at the design stage, our mechanical engineering department selects technical solutions for easy repair and recycling. For this, a product must be easily dismantled, with clips, screws, avoiding glue or ultrasound welding. For repair, easy access to the test tips through the battery door will be ideal. For recycling, it will be easier and will improve the quality of the material if the product is not in bi-material, does not have a label and paints.
