Seeking to provide customers with reliable warranty support and traceability data led Egicon to start a digitalization journey, which eventually led to full automation of its manufacturing processes. Egicon invested in ECAD and MCAD systems and deployed the Valor® Process Preparation software in order to achieve a single, unified flow of information between our design and production departments. Egicon releases at least 200 new product introductions (NPIs) or updates for review each year, and the Valor Process Preparation suite manages all product changes and releases.

In addition, Egicon uses Opcenter Execution Electronics IoT to improve data collection and gain the benefits of the greater flow of data, which allowed them to benefit from the Opcenter Intelligence Electronics analytics software. Valor Material Verification verifies that all materials and tools are set up before assembly, improving efficiency and quality. This way, customers are assured of the highest levels of traceability (IPC1782 levels three and four).

Using these solutions, Egicon s.r.l. has succeeded in reducing their repair rate from 30 ppm to six, and achieved a scrap rate of zero percent!
