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.
