Thomas Instrumentation has been designing electronics for a variety of industries since 1971. Many of our previous systems were designed for industrial environments and were expected to survive hard conditions for over 7 years. We are currently still supporting systems that were installed in industrial facilities during the 1980s. Most of our customers have acknowledged the quality of our work by staying with us for over 20 years. One such customer has even placed a 5 year warranty on their products which no other competitor in their industry can match. We take pride in our work and test every product that leaves our door to ensure our customer’s satisfaction.
The Personal Touch
Thomas Instrumentation believes a product’s success depends not only on the quality of its design, but also on a good working relationship with its creator, our customer. One of our unique ingredients for success is that most of our team has been working together to create solutions for nearly two decades. This combined with our small size ensures that customers receive personal, efficient, and experienced service. Customers are able to interact one-on-one with any of the employees working on their project at any time during office hours. When a client gets stuck on a problem, we work with them to get through it. We strive to form excellent working relationships with our clients in hopes of creating a profitable alliance for all involved parties.
Variety of Experience
Over the years, Thomas Instrumentation has been involved in a variety of different projects across many industries. These projects included everything from developing new controllers, upgrading obsolete designs, finding replacement parts, and even reverse engineering boards when customers don’t have their documentation. As for our industry experience, it includes but is not limited to industrial, biopharmaceutical, medical, agricultural, consumer, and military markets. This means we already understand the restrictions and requirements necessary for designing and manufacturing products in these fields. Several of our customers sell their products globally, so we are also aware of RoHS and other international requirements. Our wealth of experience saves customers both time and money in their process of getting a product to market.
It always was a challenge to find a contract manufacturer that you can trust and we are glad we discovered Thomas Instruments. Our tiny wildlife telemetry products, such as the LifeTag and ES400W, require extremely advanced assembly capabilities. Some of which needed to be engineered from the ground up. Not only did Thomas Instruments succeed where others failed, but they were able to manufacture our products with a very low failure rate. Thomas Instruments stands by the quality of their work and have been a great partner over the last several years.
The team at Thomas Instrumentation has designed, fabricated, and programmed custom controllers with touchscreen user interfaces for an entire product line of blood-banking equipment for us. They are very responsive to our needs, from both aesthetic and functional perspectives, and frequently offer suggestions for improvement. Their involvement has been paramount to the development of the product line, and allows us to successfully compete in the marketplace. Their depth and breadth of knowledge is an asset to us, and we will continue to work with them on future projects.
I have been working with Thomas Instrumentation for over 15 years. During that time, T.I. has developed several proprietary industrial control platforms for my OEM needs. The environments that these controls operate in is a harsh one with extreme levels of static electricity present. There are very few board designers in existence today who could meet this challenge. T.I. has proven to be one of them. In addition to having a staff of highly competent hardware experts, a team of equally competent embedded systems programmers has worked closely and tirelessly with me to develop code for the machines. Thanks to them, one of our units now arguably has the most advanced, feature-rich, and intuitive HMI’s in our industry. I do not hesitate to recommend this company for almost any proprietary PCB needs.
