Assembly In Action: Screen Printer Adapts to Changing Needs
July 27, 2009
DCI Inc., in Olathe, KS, designs and manufactures electronics components and subassemblies for customers in a wide range of industries. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of specialized custom liquid crystal displays, light emitting diode displays and operator interfaces.
Recently, the company expanded its electronics manufacturing capacity by implementing a new Horizon 03i fully automatic screen-printing system from electronics assembly equipment manufacturer DEK USA Inc.
According to DCI chief operating officer Mike Morgan, the company went with the Horizon 03i because of its high print quality and ease of use. Morgan says his company also likes the system’s quick setup and changeover times, as well as its new HawkEye print verification inspection feature.
“We evaluated several screen printing systems,” Morgan says. “The capability of DEK’s Horizon 03i coupled with the staff’s depth of knowledge and process expertise made our decision an easy one. With the Horizon platform’s new scalability, future-proofing and ability to customize, we can modify the system to meet our manufacturing requirements as our business changes and grows.”
DEK’s entire Horizon line of screen printers includes motorized stencil alignment, fast product changeover, 2.0 Cpk print process capability and Six Sigma production performance. The system’s Instinctiv V9 user interface allows manufacturers to seamlessly integrate advanced options like speed enhancement, next-generation understencil cleaning technology and automatic board support, as required.
“It’s no coincidence that DCI has been named to Fortune Small Business magazine’s list of the fastest growing small companies for the past two consecutive years,” says DCIs vice-president of business development Jay Gillam. “When your top priority is ensuring your customers receive outstanding service and superior quality products on time every time, business success is inevitable. Our addition of DEK’s Horizon 03i is just one more example of this commitment.”
