 World-class Taiwanese EMS finds formula to meet aggressive market demands with flexible Fuzion® Platform.

Taiwan-based EMS, Wistron Corporation continues to successfully adapt to its evolving customer product portfolio with a manufacturing model that includes Universal Instruments’ Fuzion Platform. Wistron has now integrated more than 60 Fuzion, including several platforms purchased earlier this year, to perform complex odd-form applications while maintaining a 99.9% yield for volume production of information and communication technology (ICT) products.

“As the products we build continue to advance, the assembly processes become more challenging,” said Wistron Senior Manager, Engineering, Tequila Hsieh. “Universal has clearly differentiated Fuzion through its ability to handle the most extreme applications, and handle them very well. Fuzion is the only solution that can address these needs for us, and we’ve been very happy with not only its versatility, but also its ability to meet the high-volume requirements and exacting quality standards of our customers.”

Established in 2001, Wistron provides design, manufacturing and after-sales support services for notebook PCs, desktop systems, server and storage systems, IA (information appliances), handheld devices, networking, and communication products. Wistron serves a worldwide customer base of internationally recognized computerrelated brands, generating nearly $19B in 2015 revenue.

Fuzion is Universal’s flagship platform, featuring a diverse portfolio capable of handling a wide range of pin-inpaste odd-form, surface mount odd-form and standard surface mount applications. Fuzion multifunction variants leverage specialized tooling, vision and software to place odd-form components up to 150mm connectors and 40mm tall. For radical placement challenges with unique requirements, Universal’s applications team offers custom design and implementation services to develop and integrate the perfect solution.

“We’ve built a reputation as the best multifunction solution in electronics assembly, and that means taking on the most difficult assembly tasks without sacrificing yield or impeding productivity,” said Universal Instruments Vice President of Customer Operations, Brad Bennett. “This is what we’ve been able to bring to the partnership with Wistron, which is truly a world-class company building world-class products. We feel this is an ideal fit for both companies and we look forward to continuing and extending this valued relationship.”
