production facility


Robust production processes and dedicated staff are at the heart of everything we do, ensuring we build some of the highest quality and most reliable systems on the market today.

From one-off systems to high volume roll-outs, and with multiple ISO 9001 certified UK manufacturing sites specialising in the production of industrial computerslithium battery packscustom antennas and other electronics products, Steatite have the capability and capacity to help.

Production Process

Each system will be hand built and tested by one of our highly skilled and experienced production engineers, with various independent checks made throughout the build process to ensure the system will meet the required specification.

To ensure reliability of our systems, full anti-static precautions are observed throughout the production of every system.

O/S Install & Imaging

We can pre-install a range of Windows, either as a fresh install, or with your particular software pre-installed, or can apply your custom Linux or Android image.

If we will be building a number of identical systems for you, we can take an image of a fully configured system and then redeploy that to all future systems that we build, saving time when you come to use them.

Build Documentation

To ensure every identical system is truly identical, we will create a production document that includes all relevant build instructions, meaning we can build every system in the same way, regardless of who is building it.

This document could include things like BIOS settings, expansion card locations, cable routing requirements, software settings and more.

Production Tests & Checks

Our goal is to provide the most reliable systems of any embedded PC supplier. To help us do this, every system that we build goes through a range of stringent tests and checks before shipment.

In addition to our standard suite of tests, we can perform further hardware and software tests that might usually be carried out by our customers, saving time and money.

Once tests are complete, each system is checked for build quality by a second engineer, it is then photographed for our records and signed off for dispatch.

The end result is a system which is designed, engineered and tested to operate flawlessly.
