ectorGuard® from DEK now even more accessible for customers in India

Aug 28, 2009

DEK’s popular VectorGuard® stencil range is now even more accessible for customers in India, following the extension of the company’s successful business partnership with Maxim SMT. Already distributing DEK capital equipment in the region, Maxim SMT will now supply a full range of VectorGuard stencils under license from DEK.

VectorGuard is a patented stencil tensioning system offering significant advantages over conventional stencil technologies. Reusable and recyclable, the frameless tensioning technology prioritizes operator safety, system rigidity and ease-of-use for ongoing print process optimization. Flexibility is central to VectorGuard’s enduring popularity among modern manufacturers, accommodating mainstream SMT all the way through to semiconductor packaging applications. The new India VectorGuard Licensee will manufacture and supply the advanced stencil technology to this emerging market, incorporating electroformed foils, laser-cut nickel foils and plastic stencils for unprecedented process flexibility, yield enhancement and cost-efficiency.

Commenting on the extension of the partnership, Maxim SMT’s Director, Alok Bathla explains: “Maxim SMT will manufacture VectorGuard stencils under license from DEK in India. The Maxim SMT manufacturing facility is strategically positioned to serve local customers with the most advanced stencil production equipment, quick turnaround capabilities and technical expertise - all backed by our comprehensive service and support infrastructure. This capability will help Maxim SMT to realize its vision to provide its esteemed customers with not only the best equipment but also, a complete process solution.”

DEK Franchise & Licensing Manager, Jim Wong, adds: “Headquartered at New Delhi and supported by branch offices at Chennai, Bangalore and Pune, Maxim SMT is well positioned to help manufacturers throughout India gain a distinct competitive advantage through the use of our pioneering stencil system. Naturally, we’ll be working closely with the company to ensure its provision of VectorGuard stencils maintains the high standards of quality our customers have come to expect. However, with a proven track record, exceptional skills-base and unwavering commitment to service and support, I have no doubt that Maxim SMT will be the perfect partner for VectorGuard customers across India.”
