ABS/ESP Control Unit

Over the past decades, braking system in cars have made huge progression, resulting in a high safety level. A modern ABS/ESP Control Unit makes use of several signals before it controls the braking system and Electronic Throttle Body (ETB). In order to control the brake calipers, it uses a labyrinth with valves that control the hydraulic flow from and to the brake calipers. As long as trouble stays out, it really is a great piece of engineering.

But operating under the same conditions as an Engine Control Unit, the ABS/ESP Control Unit unfortunately also has a substantial failure rate. The current use of ceramics and embedded systems may have elevated the computing power and reduced weight and volume, but the minuscule hybrid connections are extremely vulnerable. Exposed bare dies are mostly covered with silicone gel, but even that doesn’t always protect them properly.

The complexity of the ABS/ESP Control Unit makes replacing rather expensive, therefore remanufacturing is a viable option. However, the combination of embedded systems, hybrid connections and sensitive parts complicates the remanufacturing process. Alec GmbH uses advanced machinery, such as the wire bonding machine in order to renew all hybrid wire connections. These professional methods guarantee the same or higher quality as an OEM ABS/ESP Control Unit, thus making our solutions suitable for Tier 1 suppliers.

Highly automated methods are used in order to achieve a low cost high quality remanufacturing process:

  • Components are disassembled by using advanced automatic tools
  • Repetitive movements are carried out by robot arms
  • The cleaning procedure can be performed with automated wet blasting, automated dry ice blasting or even robotised ultrasonic cleaning
  • The component can be opened by CNC, its casting compound can be chemically or mechanically removed and (parts of) the housing can be renewed
  • All components and parts are transported by Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs)
  • More complex and specialist operations require our ultrasonic wire bonding machines, BGA placement equipment, various test and simulation platforms and fully automated glue dispensing robots

Our methods have been developed with a clear goal in mind: to achieve the highest possible efficiency. This results in a short turnaround time with a high reliability.

The entire process is carried out according to ISO9001 and ISO14001 in an ESD protected environment (IATF16949 to be expected).
