Integrated Automation Sheds Light on the Future of Electronics Manufacturing

Electronic products are becoming smaller and smarter. Meanwhile, labor costs are increasing rapidly, so automation in the electronics manufacturing equipment is a must in the future. It is expected that the compound annual growth rate of automation products will be around 21%.

Also, productronica China brought together automation companies to provide diversified solutions for electronics manufacturing factories. In addition to traditional industrial robots and automation key players, such as FANUC, Festo, HIWIN, and Nachi, the exhibition also featured international collaborative robot manufacturers, including JAKA, Universal Robots, Our Robotics, and intelligent mobile robot companies like MiR, Nanjiang, Seer, and Standard. A new exhibition area for industrial sensors was created this year to host innovations from leading exhibitors as Bonner, Kebenlong, Kistler, and Pepperl+Fuchs.

Emil Hauch Jensen, VP of sales in China of MiR Robots (Shanghai) Co. Ltd., mentioned, “This is our first time at productronica China,” he elaborated. “We joined because we saw that it was a leading, fast-growing exhibition in our industry. We see a lot of interest from our customers, and we also see customers being more mature and knowledgeable about products. We were very happy with productronica China.”

Further, productronica China 2019 provided integrated automation solutions for the electronics manufacturing industry and shared new ideas and concepts surrounding smart factories to promote the upgrade to automatic electronic manufacturing.

High-quality Forums Address Important Topics of Future Development

A series of technical forums, competitions, and workshops were held along with the exhibition to create added value for both exhibitors and visitors. Two new forums received high industrial attention. The “International Smart Manufacturing Ecosystem Summit 2019" featured experts from Huawei, Siemens, ADI, and Broadcom who shared their expertise on topics, such as smart manufacturing, digital twin, and AI-assisted industrial automation. The “China International SiP Forum” was also held for the first time to share expert talks from the SiP (System in Packaging) industry on applications of and opportunities for EMS and IC enterprises. Other existing forums on flexible printed electronics, wire harness, and adhesive technology were well attended and received positive resonance from the audience.

The next productronica China will take place in Shanghai March 18–20, 2020.

Highlights on a Rousing Virtual IPC APEX EXPO 2021

What a week that was! I didn’t get to endure the 11-hour flight each way, neither did I need my comfy old shoes, but it certainly was a marathon event. And real-time-plus-six-hours gave me a few late nights, but it was such a meaningful experience, and well worth the effort!

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
