Molex, a leading global supplier of electronic solutions, specializes in manufacturing complex printed circuit boards, both for their own products and as contract manufacturers, faced significant challenges in stencil design and manufacturing, particularly in achieving consistency and precision in their stencil openings.
Finding the right solution
Molex outsourced the majority of stencil fabrication to external vendors, leading to inconsistent stencil quality, which was influenced by the vendor’s internal processes.
Besides, due to differences in engineers’ expertise and attention to detail, Molex struggled with variations in aperture designs across different projects. Also, designing specialized apertures for unique requirements was a time-consuming process. A more efficient and intelligent solution is urgently needed.
A certain and rapid path to growth
By implementing Vayo’s core SMT process know-how digitalization solution, Molex standardized component stencil openings and store data in a centralized library, eliminating variations caused by personnel differences. The production time for creating new stencils reduced from an average of 4-6 hours to approximately 1 hour, significantly improving efficiency. By designing stencils in-house, Molex regained control over stencil quality, enhancing customer satisfaction.
Outstanding technical support
Timely technical support is crucial, especially for electronic solutions suppliers. Vayo has established efficient communication channels and a dedicated support team who are available around the clock to address any technical issues that arise from Molex. Whether it’s troubleshooting software glitches, or offering guidance on system optimization, Vayo technical team possesses the knowledge and experience needed to tackle any challenge, and solve all of the worries of Molex in time.
“Vayo’s Stencil Designer software is very capable of meeting our needs. It provides user-friendly operation and we received first-class pre-sales and after-sales support. This collaboration aligns with Molex’s internal vision of standardization and digitization. We look forward to future cooperation with Vayo.” said Haijun, an engineer in the Molex PE department.
In summary, Vayo helps address Molex’s challenges in stencil design and manufacturing, leading to increased efficiency, quality control, and customer satisfaction. This story underscores the value of innovative software solutions and strong customer support in achieving excellence.
