Selection of DEK Horizon 03i Underpins DCI Quality Commitment

Feb 21, 2009

As an electronic design and manufacturing firm that places particular emphasis on quality control and high yield manufacturing principles, DCI Incorporated approaches resource investment with exceptionally high standards. When the Olathe, Kansas-based EMS provider made the decision to install a fully automatic screen printing system, these demanding performance criteria led them to select DEK's Horizon 03i platform.

Providing a variety of design and manufacturing services for multiple market sectors, DCI has expertise in applications that range from industrial to transportation to wireless monitoring systems. In addition, the company is one of only a handful of US-based manufacturers of Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) and not only has the expertise to build these devices, but provides LCD design services as well. Partnering with a screen printing firm that could uphold DCI's strict quality principles while also delivering robust solutions for inspection and ease-of-use for set-up and product changeover was critical to the company's ambitious growth plans and long-term success.

�We evaluated several screen printing systems,� says Mike Morgan, DCI Chief Operating Officer. �The capability of DEK's Horizon 03i � particularly the HawkEye inspection technology � coupled with the staff's depth of knowledge and process expertise made our decision an easy one. Plus, with the Horizon platform's new scalability, future-proofing and ability to customize, we can modify the system to meet our manufacturing requirements as our business changes and grows.�

One of the primary screen printing equipment requirements for DCI was a technically advanced, yet easy-to-use, inspection system. DEK's Horizon 03i delivered with its award-winning HawkEye� 750 print verification technology. Offering assembly specialists unmatched value, the entire Horizon platform, which includes the Horizon 01i, Horizon 02i and Horizon 03i, provides numerous features as standard such as motorized stencil alignment, fast product changeover, 2.0 Cpk print process capability and 6-sigma production performance. With Horizon and its powerful Instinctiv V9 user interface, manufacturers also enjoy the flexibility of choice and can seamlessly integrate advanced options like speed enhancement, next-generation understencil cleaning technology and automatic board support when required, guaranteeing a future-proofed productivity advantage and an exceptional Return on Investment.

�It's no coincidence that DCI has been named to Fortune Small Business magazine's list of the fastest growing small companies for the past two consecutive years,� proudly states Jay Gillam, DCI's Vice-President of Business Development. �When your top priority is ensuring your customers receive outstanding service and superior quality products on time every time, business success is inevitable. Our addition of DEK's Horizon 03i is just one more example of this commitment.�
