Polish company ITR purchases UcamX and Integr8tor for a complete and stable CAM process.
ITR, short for Instytut Tele- I Radiotechniczny and part of the Łukasiewicz Research Network Institute, conducts comprehensive and interdisciplinary scientific examinations and development activities on highly advanced technologies and innovations, in particular with regard to ICT systems, electronics, electronic installation and Industry 4.0 solutions.
“In order to meet the requirements set by the market for innovative design and IT solutions, quality should always be a primary aim at every stage of the company’s activity. At the Tele and Radio Research Institute, there’s the firm belief that continuous quality monitoring and improvement is the key to success in both scientific research and marketing”, says Mr. Edward Ramotowski, ITR’s Production Manager.
“It is with this in mind, that we have chosen Ucamco software for our CAM processes. Both UcamX and Integr8tor help us improving our systems and maintaining the quality we are known for at the highest level.” In total, ITR has purchased four UcamX seats and two Integr8tor workflows.
Quote from Mr. Mortimer, President
USA based PCB manufacturer Amitron has extended their Integr8tor software with the purchase of additional modules, including Checkpoint.
Amitron, located near Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport in Illinois, has been providing high-quality printed circuits boards with remarkable speed and customer service since 1985. The PCB manufacturer serves the medical, military, automotive and consumer electronic industries.
“Our reputation thrives on delivering multilayer, double-sided and single-sided PCBs at the highest possible quality and the lowest possible costs”, says Tyson Mortimer, President at Amitron. “Our main objective is to save our customers money, time and peace of mind. Reaching that goal is reflected in everything we do, from the extent in which we test our circuit boards to the speed in which we deliver our quotes. Which is where Integr8tor comes into play. Reliability means everything to our customers. Thanks to Integr8tor, we can provide that reliability in the way we quote price requests.”
Amitron has now decided to add Checkpoint to their existing Integr8tor workflows. Checkpoint is a graphical DFM review tool that allows users to gain time for time-critical jobs, to minimize shop-floor downtime and to increase effective plant capacity.
“Integr8tor has many new functionalities that come at a low cost but signify a big boost to its capacities and those using it. Adding Checkpoint is a major upgrade”, confirms Mr. Mortimer. “We have been working with Ucamco software for many years. The in-house combination of Integr8tor, that has always been the de facto software in its category, and UcamX is now better than ever. It is so much more than the sum of its parts. Amitron firmly believes that it puts Ucamco ahead of its competitors. We are delighted to continue our partnership.”
Quote from Mr. Frachon, CEO
PCB manufacturer Cirly, specialized in prototypes and small production runs, has purchased a second workflow for Integr8tor, along with various Integr8tor options to add to both the existing and the additional workflow.
The French company, based in Brignais, confidently prefers Integr8tor, Ucamco’s sales and engineering server for auto input and design analysis, over similar software technologies on the market.
Maxime Frachon, CEO at Cirly, explains the choice to expand his company’s arsenal with more Ucamco products: “Thanks to Integr8tor, we can guarantee a far better service to our clients, analyzing their design data automatically and in real time for a faster, more accurate quoting process.”
In addition to the new Integr8tor workflow and extra options, Cirly has also purchased two extensions for the Ucam Yelo software. Mr. Frachon is confident about the purchase, and rightly so: “The decision to add Ucam Yelo to our software package, allows us to significantly improve board layouts within minutes, cut back our CAM cycle time by 30% and slash production cost on every batch.”
“We are convinced that our purchases from Ucamco will turn out to be huge additions to our daily processes. We will soon notice the improved results”, Mr. Frachon concludes.
Quote from Mr. Molins, purchasing manager
Thanks to Integr8tor we can guarantee a far better service to our clients, analysing their design data automatically and in real time for a faster, more accurate quoting process. The Integr8tor software will help us in what we call our customers 'time factor' in the development and manufacture of its products. Ucamco’s Integr8tor software enables us to take our prototype service to a higher level that fits all needs of our customer, how simple or complex they may be, via which we can maintain the quality and finishing throughout the entire production process. It's clear that Integr8tor is a real win-win, for our clients and for us!
Quote from Technical Director Hubert van Rennings
Integr8tor is invaluable because it provides very clear syntax and rules for how things must be described, including design rule checks, text descriptions and even annotations – so everybody understands the instructions, because the approach is uniform and clear.
