Inventec: Digitizing Stencil Experience with Vayo-Stencil Designer Software

Time:2023-11-14Views:74

Overview

Founded in 1975, Inventec manufactures computers, telephones, notebooks, and servers and has developed a strong foundation for global success. Upon entering the 21st century, Inventec has become even more active in such industries as cloud computing, wireless communication, intelligent devices and IoT. Inventec is a prominent player in this dynamic industry, annually produces up to 30 million laptops, 3 million enterprise servers, and 5 million smartphones, establishing itself as a global leader in server manufacturing and one of the top five laptop contract manufacturers.

With years of experience in the industry, Inventec had meticulously recorded their stencil apertures data using Excel. However, this manual approach proved challenging for knowledge transfer and adaptation to the diverse New Product Introduction (NPI) scenarios. In early 2022, recognizing the need for digital transformation, they approached vayo for a solution. Stencil Designer software was implemented to comprehensively digitize their stencil experience.

Inventec needs digital transformation urgently

In the past, Inventec faced significant challenges in the transmission and reuse of stencil apertures experience. The inability to inherit and apply past knowledge, coupled with lengthy inspection processes and substantial time investments in preparing stencil requirements, resulted in a significant drain on resources. The dedicated efforts of process engineers were primarily directed towards manual inspections, leaving little room for innovation and efficiency. Seeking a transformative solution, Inventec turned to Vayo-Stencil Designer Software.

Vayo-Stencil Designer helps Inventec facilitated the comprehensive digitization of stencil experiences

Stencil Designer software addressed the challenges that manual methods couldn’t conquer. The software facilitated the comprehensive digitization of stencil experiences, marking the realization of Inventec’s digital transformation goals, especially brought about significant improvements in the following key areas:
I)Apertures Database:
Every stencil aperture data is now stored in a centralized database.
Quick retrieval for internal reporting or generating DXF files for suppliers.
II)Rule Checks:
Partially replaces manual inspections, detecting errors made by suppliers.
III)PIP (Pin in Paste):
Integration with automatic plug-ins.
Analyzes filling rates, aiding in cost considerations.
IV)Thermal Expansion Compensation:
Addresses the challenge of thermal expansion in large-sized PCBs.
Provides updated Gerber files to suppliers post-reflow soldering, ensuring improved accuracy compared to traditional methods.

“It’s better than before”, said Jianquan, process engineer in Inventec PE department. The user-friendly interface, the exceptional technical support and the willingness of listening to user, making it easy for Inventec to navigate and utilize the software effectively, continually enhance and optimize the software, which empowered inventec to navigate the challenges of a rapidly evolving industry, fostering efficiency, knowledge transfer, and improved product quality.

Reduce costs and increase efficiency, digital transformation is necessary

For traditional manufacturing industries, the rapid digitalization of the world and the professional fields is a situation that is difficult to accept but one we must face. Digital transformation is usually a long and tough process. For manufacturing industry, achieving a digital leap is even more difficult than for other industries. However, the implementation of Vayo-Stencil Designer software took Inventec’s digital transformation to a higher level, and they felt the tangible benefits brought by digital transformation.
Firstly, enhanced efficiency. Substantial reduction in manual efforts, allowing engineers to focus on more critical tasks, accelerated stencil preparation for manufacturing. Secondly, knowledge digitization. Seamless transfer and reuse of stencil aperture experience, Increase adaptability to diverse NPI scenarios. Thirdly, improved quality control. Rule checks and inspections conducted by the software contribute to higher-quality stencil. Last but not least, cost savings. Analysis of filling rates and thermal expansion compensation contribute to cost-effective decision-making.
