Incap Estonia Invests in New Production Lines

Reading time ( words)

Incap Estonia is upgrading its two current SMT production lines and adding a third SMT line to its factory in Kuressaare. The new investment will increase the overall SMT production capacity by more than 50% and will be opened in the third quarter of this year.

According to Greg Grace, Managing Director of Incap Estonia, the investment in two existing and one new SMT (surface-mount technology) line will help the company to support its growth and customer demands. Incap Estonia is investing EUR 1.35 million in a long-term lease agreement of six years by renting new production equipment from SMT Renting.

“Technology is changing rapidly and therefore we have seen and experienced that the renting model suits our factory as a concept very well, as it allows us flexibility and guarantees us the latest technology in the field,” Grace explained.

The contract for investments was signed with SMT Renting which has also provided the SMT lines for Incap in 2017 as well as in 2020. “Our plan is to upgrade our two existing production lines to make them faster and to add a third line in order to be able to increase the production capacity by more than 50%,” Grace stated.

To maintain a well-functioning, agile and flexible modern manufacturing facility in Incap’s Kuressaare factory, the upgrades on the lines will be completed in the third quarter of this year.

Incap Estonia is part of Incap Corporation, which is an international contract manufacturer. Electronics manufactured by Incap Estonia can be found for example in smart meters, in light electric vehicles on the streets, in smart led lights in different regions in Estonia as well as in the machinery of the world’s most famous marine company.

New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further.

Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.

The Impact of Obsolescence and Shortages on Counterfeit Risk

While obsolescence and shortages have always been an issue, recent large-scale disruptions have made the electronic components supply chain even more volatile. Since last December, the global chip shortage has caused pricing shifts, lead time delays, and widespread stockouts. The shortage is bringing a higher-than-normal number of counterfeit parts into the supply chain. To adequately address the problem, it is important to understand its root causes, exacerbating factors, and how its impact can be avoided.
