Code of Conduct

Our responsibility
contech is a premium company in the electronics industry. We supply intelligent products for innovative markets. We take responsibility for

  • our customers
  • our services and products
  • our employees
  • our partners and suppliers
  • our environment

The quality-oriented development and delivery of electronic and mechatronic products require a high level of process reliability and attention. This is why contech operates an integrated management system.

Quality management
In practice, we are measured by the degree to which we meet our customers' expectations. The demands on the quality of our products and services are high. Our aim is to meet our customers' requirements in the best possible way and to strengthen their innovative power in the process. In this way, we actively contribute to the success of our customers. This is why contech has been operating a certified quality management system in accordance with EN ISO 9001 since 1995.

Development and production quality
These are some of the guidelines that apply to us:

REACH Regulation No. 1907/2006
EMC Directive 2004/108/EC
RoHS Directive 2012/19/EU
Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC
Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC
WEEE Directive 2004/108/EC

These and many other regulations, standards and directives are taken into account by contech if they apply to the respective development and/or the respective product and/or are required by the respective customer.

Quality capability
Relevant training is no longer a unique selling point. contech aims to develop and deliver quality in accordance with IPC guidelines. This is why contech has IPC trainers and IPC specialists.

Process-related voltage discharges can unintentionally damage components. ESD protection and ESD training are carried out by our engineers and audited by our customers.

Environmental management
Thinking about tomorrow today - technical progress and environmental protection go hand in hand at contech. Under the umbrella of our integrated management system, we keep our emissions and input materials under control.

  • Lead-free soldering
    contech always solders lead-free. This is mandatory, among other things to comply with the RoHS directive. Of course, contech still has the ability to solder with leaded solder in exceptional cases, if it is absolutely necessary for older services and products that have been on the market for a very long time.
  • Hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment / RoHS
    We prefer to source our components from approved distributors or directly from manufacturers who guarantee compliance with 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) or who impose these requirements on their suppliers. If technical requirements do not permit an alternative solution, we will only deviate from RoHS conformity in exceptional cases and only in consultation with our customers.
  • Hazardous chemicals / REACH
    Our suppliers generally confirm on their websites that their products comply with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006.
 

Raw materials from conflict areas
Raw materials used in electronic components, such as precious metals and minerals, should preferably not originate from conflict areas. According to Title Fifteen (Sec. 1502) of the Dodd-Frank Act, this includes in particular gold, wolframite, cassiterite and coltan from the Democratic Republic of Congo or a country bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo. For this reason, contech prefers to source its components from distributors approved by manufacturers or directly from manufacturers who have agreed to comply with the Dodd-Frank Act and/or prefer to source their raw materials from Asia and/or North America. contech itself is far removed from these mining regions and companies at the value-added stage and does not independently source minerals or goods directly from the countries prohibited by the Dodd-Frank Act.

Health protection and occupational safety
Health protection and occupational safety are important elements of the corporate culture and are essential for contech's business success. Only healthy employees produce quality results. In order to maintain and further improve this high level, contech works together with external partners. In line with the requirements of the employers' liability insurance associations, regular auditing and improvement of occupational health and safety is carried out in close cooperation with an external company doctor for health protection. In the meetings of the working committee, the topics of health protection and occupational safety are dealt with, criticism is voiced, suggestions are translated into measures and subsequently implemented.

contech therefore also expects its suppliers and partners to comply with the relevant laws, ordinances and accident prevention regulations.

We look forward to receiving your application

Project name:

Cyber Physical Test System (CPTS)
Low-cost inspection and test procedure for embedded systems with cloud connection

Project description:

In the past, embedded systems were often determined by their electrical functionality. The production test was carried out directly on the production line by means of an electrical or optical test (AOI or ICT, for example), usually using a stand-alone test device. These devices are expensive, complex to operate and have no cloud connection. A simple, cost-effective and at least partially standardized solution for the production test of embedded systems with medium or low complexity, both stand-alone and in the end product, is missing. This need is to be addressed by the Cyber Physical Test System (CPTS) to be developed. The system consists of a standardized, simple "test mouse" that loads the device-under-test with test programs and controls the test execution, add-on modules for standardized or product-specific tests, a connection via the Internet to a test cloud and a user interface, e.g. in the form of a tablet.

Project name:

EMEL - Energy management in metropolitan eMobility charging infrastructures

Project description:

As part of the project described above, a system solution for the integration of charging points and charging infrastructures into metropolitan energy management systems is being developed and implemented as a prototype. Three relevant scenarios are addressed: the integration of a charging point into the smart home (charging at home), into smart grids (charging in public spaces) and into smart factories (charging at the workplace).
Role of contech: CP contech electronic GmbH is responsible for the development of the charging control unit (for charging points) with the corresponding gateway functionality for integration into the three target scenarios.

AI marketplace: The digital platform for AI in engineering

Project description:

Artificial intelligence (AI) is an important key to innovative product creation processes. Product creation is a central task in manufacturing companies: The proportion of software is constantly increasing in the digital transformation and is making products ever more complex. More than ever, development requires the combined expertise of different specialist disciplines. AI applications open up far-reaching potential for optimizing processes and increasing the performance of manufacturing companies. Specifically, development capacities can be increased and development times and subsequent manufacturing costs can be reduced. However, the necessary AI expertise is often lacking. In turn, providers of AI solutions often lack access to user and domain knowledge. An AI platform should be the solution: The AI marketplace creates a unique ecosystem that brings together AI experts, providers and users in order to exploit the potential of artificial intelligence.
Role of contech: contech participates in the AI marketplace as an associated partner.

Project name:

Holistic circular product development for intelligent technical systems

Project description:

The manufacture of mechatronic products, such as semiconductors, is characterized by high energy requirements, the use of critical raw materials and complex production conditions. One approach to solving this problem is the circular economy. This means that waste is avoided by reusing and repairing existing products. If this is not possible, the products are broken down into their starting materials, i.e. raw materials, in order to recycle them. This basic idea must also be implemented in the product creation process. To this end, the ZirkuPro project aims to develop a system for holistic circular product creation for intelligent technical systems.
CP contech electronic GmbH is a consortium partner with its own pilot project and would like to focus more strongly on the topics of sustainability and circularity.

Project name:

Smart wireless MID sensor systems for IOT applications

Project description:

The aim of the research project is to create a system for the development and production of individual AM-based MID sensor systems using laser direct structuring (LDS) technology. In this way, a secure, detailed understanding of the process will be established and at the same time a system will be developed that will enable other companies to access the technology. CP contech electronic is a consortium partner with its own pilot project and is using the example of a sensor system on a rotating fixture to investigate whether MID technology is generally suitable for industrial applications.
