MTEK Launches MCell Insertion


Reading time ( words)

As a leading provider of Smart Factory Solution, MTEK announces the general release of their MCell Insertion, a flexible, adaptive, software-defined robotic solution for inserting electronic components that delivers measurable cost saving. 

In installations with some of the world’s top EMS and OEM companies, MCell has reduced labor costs by more than 70% even in low cost regions, delivering fast return on investment (ROI). This reduction in labor cost will allow companies to maintain competitive cost levels even when production is reshored to higher cost geographies.

Now out of stealth mode, MTEK is changing the Smart Factory conversation by delivering digital building blocks that provide rapid deployment and deliver a digital dividend in terms of improved performance and efficiency. MTEK CEO Mattias Andersson explains, “Our objective is to simplify the route to the Smart Factory by creating digital building blocks that can be quickly deployed and that deliver real ROI”, adding “this first MCell module offers excellent value right out of the box, resolves a specific manufacturing challenge, and requires no programming.”

MCell Insertion uses ABB YuMi® collaborative robots, ultra-low costs feeders, zero touch programming and can be installed and deployed remotely, ideal in this time of social distancing and isolation. The result is higher quality and greater consistency, lower cost per insertion and faster changeover from product to product. 

MCell uses MBrain, part of MTEK’s Factory Intelligence System, to deliver zero touch programming as well as unrivalled performance data. You can learn more about MCell Insertion on the MTEK website.

Your Shortage Is Someone Else’s Excess

11/16/2022 | Chintan Sutaria, CalcuQuote
Excess inventory is a ubiquitous issue in the electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry, and it is made worse by the complexity and volatility of the modern supply chain. Considered an unavoidable cost of doing business, unchecked inventory cost has wreaked havoc on manufacturers without strict controls in place to keep their businesses safe. Excess inventory is not only costly for manufacturers themselves, but also for their end customers. Unwillingly, manufacturers are sometimes forced to eat this cost to avoid disrupting relationships with their customers and with the hope of making up the losses in next year’s orders from the customer.

Big Data Can Bring Your Business Back

Let’s face it, in the past, electronics manufacturing has not been a big business for North America. A majority of electronics are assembled in Asia where supply chains and operating costs offer many economic advantages. In North America, the electronics manufacturing industry has been generally focused on lower volume, high-cost devices, while higher volume products are produced elsewhere. However, the COVID pandemic and various legislation in the U.S. are changing the situation, making electronics manufacturing in North America a more attractive option. How can factories in North America compete for the same type of manufacturing traditionally performed in lower-cost regions?
