MILWAUKIE, OR – Thermal profiling OEM ECD is seeking the oldest M.O.L.E. thermal profiler still in use, and is making a contest of its search.

The company is offering a new SuperM.O.L.E. Gold 2 kit to the customer with the oldest operating device. M.O.L.E. technology was introduced in 1986, and ECD expects the winner's device will be at least 20 years old.

“We know there are customers out there still using some of our first M.O.L.E. designs,” said Todd Clifton, vice president of sales and marketing. “For us, it’s not only about building durable product technology from the outset; it’s also about the proper care of that technology through the years. We’re excited to find out who owns the oldest M.O.L.E.”

Customers who wish to participate in the Oldest M.O.L.E. Contest must submit proof of product age by providing the unit’s serial number and a photo to ECD by visiting, where contest rules and instructions will be posted.  The winner will be announced Jan. 16.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
