New Learning & Development Centre at ESCATEC Penang
ESCATEC Penang has launched an important new initiative in its continuous quest to upskill & train team members, in the form of a dedicated new "Centre of Learning & Development". The Centre - located in ESCATEC Electronic's facility in Industrial Zone 4, Bayan Lepas - was officially launched by Group COO Juha Arola and ESCATEC Penang GM Lambert Schutters. It will function as a one-stop venue to cater for all Operations-related training needs by facilitating hands-on technical training, instructor-led classroom training, certification and recertification training and online e-learning. The Malaysian Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) fully underwrote the cost of setting up the Centre, for which the ESCATEC Group is very much grateful. The management of ESCATEC takes this opportunity to say a big Thank You to the HRDF for their invaluable and kind support. Congratulations are also due to the HR Department for successfully implementing this great initiative. We need very well-trained employees to support our business growth and this new Centre will certainly play a key role in achieving that.

New Robot for an Old Customer at ESCATEC Electronics
ESCATEC Electronics in Penang recently completed the installation and commissioning of a new Epson T-series Scarra Robot for deployment on a new product for long-time customer “accesso”. The Twyford, UK, headquartered accesso specialises in providing cutting-edge queuing and ticketing technology solutions for major players in the leisure, entertainment and cultural markets. Its products and services are already in play at some of the world’s top attractions and events - from ski resorts, theme and water parks to major sporting and cultural events. The new robot at ESCATEC Penang is already operational and at work on the production line for “Prism” – a new generation wrist-wearable device and accesso’s latest offering in its LoQueue virtual queuing solutions. The robot is deployed at the “swipe test” stage of the manufacturing process for the “Prism”, where it accurately and speedily tests the functionality of the display screen’s touch functions. Mainly targeted at the leisure and entertainment markets, “Prism” enables operators to provide guests with the ability to schedule ride bookings and other attraction (theme parks and events) services seamlessly and without the need for ticketing kiosks or booths or reliance on mobile phones. Compared to a manual process, the robot provides a more stable and repeatable test, minimising the error rate and shortening throughput times as well as seamlessly interfacing with ESCATEC’s MES for full traceability, says Ms. Tan the Project Manager. This particular Epson robot model also delivers lower running and maintenance costs compared to its peers. “This new robot is just one more step towards our goal of continuous improvement of product quality, enabling us to satisfy the high expectations of our customers like accesso”, states Lambert Schutters, General Manager of ESCATEC Penang.

Great Feedback from a Valued Customer!
Note: This write-up was originally uploaded to the ESCATEC Linkedin account. We thought it would be nice to share it with a wider audience on our website. A Sweden-based client, a global leader in their industry, conducted an audit of the production and delivery processes at ESCATEC Electronics in Penang. The audit concluded that ESCATEC “is a very good EMS supplier” for the client. Particularly pleasing for the client is the helpful and interested attitude of ESCATEC’s staff, the clean spacious and well-marked production space, the fact that employees undergo regular training, and the effectiveness of ESCATEC’s EPMS and MES systems. “We can see that both factories in Penang have full control of the moulding tools and machines in terms of maintenance/service. Very visible and clear,” opined the audit report, while the MES system functioned effectively right from tracking a single component to the delivery of a complete module. “This is a demand from our customers and the MES fulfils it”, stated the audit report. Such encouraging words are a testimony to the hard work and commitment of ESCATEC employees. We really take quality very seriously, and our focus is always to exceed customers' expectations.
