Interlatin to Launch the First Step Stencil in Mexico

Reading time ( words)

Interlatin will officially launch the first step stencil in Mexico—the VIPER Step Stencil—on January 12, 2017 during an open house event in its headquarters, in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The improvement in the delivery time is the greatest benefit for the electronic manufacturing industry in Mexico. Normally, a step stencil is delivered to the customers in three to four weeks, but now with VIPER, the customers will have to wait only two days for its delivery countrywide. It is estimated that the demand for step stencils in Mexico is from 1,000 to 1,500 stencils a year, which represents a market with an approximate value of $1.5 million.

It is important to mention that the VIPER Step Stencil is environment friendly, thanks to its Laser Weld production process, which does not use any chemicals unlike the most step stencils manufacturers outside Mexico do.

For its customers’ best convenience, Interlatin will manufacture two types of VIPER Step Stencil: the VIPER and the VIPER-C. The VIPER-C is a normal VIPER step stencil on which the Cobra technology (IDtech – Intelligent Deposition Technology) is integrated. Cobra is not a nano stencil and improves the manufactures productivity thanks to the permanent treatment of its surface.

Once again, Interlatin proves to be a pioneer in Mexico by being the first company to offer step stencils, which represents an investment of $1 million from Interlatin.

He also covers how sometimes the key to utilizing Industry 4.0 comes from a change in mindset rather than a drastic change or investment in new equipment or processes.

"There’s a need for flexible solutions, so people are trying to make the most of the equipment that they buy, and they want to have the equipment that’s able to be flexible in scale with what it is that they’re looking for," said Camille Sybert of Nordson Electronics Solutions. "We have customers asking about future capabilities that they might not be ready for right now, but they want to know that it’s something that can be easily integrated into their processes in the future, as they’re in a position to better be able to do so."

"One of the biggest challenges for me selling is educating customers that they can generate oxygen and nitrogen on their own for up to 90% savings versus getting trucked in deliveries," said Mike Montesi of On Site Gas Systems. "It’s all about education because 98–99% of customers are used to the high cost of delivered gases, where we can separate it on-site with their own equipment, and the payback is typically under a year."
