recently, hammer technology CEO Mr Luo, according to the “quality gate” incident of frequent and shortages issued an official statement said, “capacity” worse than the worst of the plan, “take weeks to recover capacity”, “need a few months time to digest the existing order.
this, China financial reporter interview to langfang foxconn factory, the responsible person “hammer mobile emergency replacement contract, is now not in langfang (foxconn) production.”
on “emergency replacement contract”, the Chinese financial journalist is in a close to the insiders of the hammer technology confirmed “is now a hammer mobile phone production line has been developed from langfang (foxconn) as well (foxconn) moved to Beijing. At present, there are orders when can digest, still not sure, might be better than a few months longer.”
“if orders for a few months to digest, hammer mobile capacity may be a big problem, why should not just components in short supply.” One is engaged in mobile phone research and development production for many years in the industry to China financial reporter explanation.
hammer emergency replacement contract
on July 22, hammer technology announcement, said hammer mobile capacity appeared serious problem, achieve normal still need a few weeks, and need a few months time to digest the existing order. Hammer technology website also cancel $300 advance booking way, instead of 0 yuan reservation.
and as early as July 8, the first batch of 1000 sets of hammer, the cell phone when the sale company has issued a “about capacity and delivery apology”. The statement said the “demanding” because of quality production, and promised to “within a week or two” production line can reach the “ideal level”.
apparently, hammer mobile capacity unchanged instead continued to deteriorate. “Good day out when hundreds of fine products, poor even when the whole production line thoroughly to stop out.” The hammer technology CEO Mr Luo said in its microblog.
this, China financial reporter interviews to hammer technology public relations director, the responsibility is called “caused by the two key components supplier appear problem, insufficient capacity.” But when reporters asked about components manufacturers, the other says for “protect partners” reasons cannot be disclosed.
however, far from it.
China financial journalists released after the hammer the place mobile phone contract – langfang foxconn factory to understand, “hammer mobile emergency replacement contract, is now not in langfang (foxconn) production.”
this message through the foregoing also close to hammer technology insider confirmed. “Hammer mobile phone production line has been developed from langfang (foxconn) moved to Beijing as well (foxconn). At present, the engineers in Beijing as well (foxconn) factory.” The people to China financial journalist, said “too many variables, also nobody can be sure that when can digest the existing order might be better than ‘a few months’ time longer.”
“a few months to work orders, very not normal. Hammer mobile capacity may be a big problem, why should not just components in short supply.” One is engaged in mobile phone research and development production for many years in the industry to China financial reporter explanation.
after China finance and economics, the reporter understands, may to June 70000 for the assembly of components have been shipped to langfang foxconn factory. Obviously, the first to sell 1000 units in the hammer phones are manufactured by langfang foxconn.
but this time, the hammer mobile emergency change the contract? A hammer technology is not the reasons why public relations director.
“a reason is the production line need to adjust, another reason is the defect of design. If the design defects may be very difficult to change.” Mobile phone China league secretary-general wang explained to Chinese financial journalist.
low yield of hammer is refers to the early sales
since July 8, the first since 1000 formal delivery, hammer mobile Smartisan T1 have encountered “quality gate” incident, due to the screen frame fracture, front-facing camera malposition, entity keys subsidence problems many times by the user complaints. Subsequently, hammer technology CEO Mr Luo public statement, said this is the most difficult hammer technology since its creation ten days, reason is the low yield of quality problem.
in Mr Luo and hammer technology official weibo statement, will also question boils down to: “line owe running-in”, “assembly operation not skilled workers”, “quality control standard not unified contract” factors.
however, the ultimate responsibility for the mobile phone is a technology research and development of whole, should also be hammer technology, rather than foxconn.” Mobile phone China league secretary-general wang expressed to the Chinese financial press different point of view, “under normal circumstances, the contract only responsible for assembly. Quality testing procedure should be done to contract by mobile phone manufacturers, technical personnel at the same time also should be monitored with the work.”
in addition, according to the existing data, the personage inside course of study to estimate, hammer yield of not more than 50% of the phone. The yield of the normal production line should be above 93%.
“it also means that the cost of production rose by at least one times, so the hammer mobile phone before improve product rate, will not be able to continue to mass production.” Wang also said.
in the industry, a new on-line production of mobile phone, in case before mass production experience, with supply chain problem of shortages and low initial capacity climbing, roa, is a very normal phenomenon. Early, just in mobile phone industry of millet and meizu also encountered the same problem.
“shouldn’t be on the product rate is not high, I have to sell.” Engaged in mobile phone production research and development for many years in the industry to China’s financial journalist said, “any mobile phone manufacturer, only when the rate under the condition of normal, will go on sale. In small batch production is only as a engineering machine, used for evaluation and testing.”
