DYCONEX AG Implements Various Measures to Reduce Lead Time

Reading time ( words)

DYCONEX AG, an MST company and a global leader for highly complex solutions in electronic interconnect technology, is recording its first results from its scheme to reduce the lead time in manufacturing. Production flow has been improved over the past eight months, while waiting times have been cut and investments have been made in new machinery.

DYCONEX has defined a range of measures as part of its project to shorten the lead time in sales and manufacturing. These measures have already made a significant impact, leading to a reduction of up to 15% in February through May 2020:

  • Installation of a new UV laser, which reduces the processing time for various products by up to 50%.
  • Installation of new transport and handling robots with a higher throughput.
  • Implementation of lean office activities within the sales department.
  • Implementation of various lean activities in production, from planning through to panel handling.
  • Increase in testing capacities (e.g. for e-tests and hot e-tests).

DYCONEX is continually working on further reducing the lead time for sales and manufacturing processes with the help of these measures, with a view to making the time it takes to deliver to its customers noticeably shorter.

Documenting Your Flex Circuit Design

09/16/2020 | Tony Plemel, Flexible Circuit Technologies
As a flex circuit applications engineer, when I receive an RFQ, the first thing I do is look at the customer’s data and review their manufacturing notes. Quite often, I find notes that supersede IPC specifications in manufacturing documents, as customers often believe these added notes and associated specifications will make the circuit more robust. However, these non-standard IPC manufacturing specifications/notes can wreak havoc on the manufacturing process and can actually lead to a less robust circuit.
