In today’s world, you need to act fast to stay on top of the competition. Digitalization gives means and tools to succeed in it.
Scanfil has invested in the latest technology when it comes to managing its operations. In late 2021 Scanfil took into use a Manufacturing Execution System (MES), which ensures that quality and efficiency are built into the manufacturing process and proactively and systematically enforced.
MES is one of the key foundations for providing an outstanding production platform to our customers. Scanfil can offer a comprehensive package of digitalization services to its customers such as:
- Improved and qualified NPI service
- Full traceability of both product and production process
- Ensure quality control throughout the whole production process
Also, Scanfil can improve its internal productivity and planning efficiency through optimized resource utilization. With MES and the digitalization tools, Scanfil is well-positioned to realize technology-driven transformation, improving performance and developing competitiveness.

Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.
