IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Attendees Speak: Brian Wojtkiewicz


Reading time ( words)

Brian Wojtkiewicz, western regional sales manager for Taiyo America 

Nolan Johnson: How has IPC APEX EXPO 2020 gone for you?

Brian Wojtkiewicz: It was pretty good, but I have seen better from this show. It was pretty light on customers this year attendance-wise from what we saw in previous years. That’s kind of disappointing, but I’m not sure what the cause is.

Johnson: What are your customers interested in?

Wojtkiewicz: Currently, everyone is looking for a lot of stuff on inkjet solder mask, digital imaging stuff, and legend inks. It’s pretty exciting.

Johnson: If they’re looking for that, that usually means they’re also looking for new equipment.

Wojtkiewicz: We’re a solder mask manufacturer, so the focus is on the brand new solder masks that come out and the new technology on that.

Johnson: Are you coming away with good feedback as far as what customers are looking for moving forward?

Wojtkiewicz: It seems they are all pursuing digital imaging; whether it’s direct imaging exposure or inkjet solder mask, they’re all going that direction, and it’s not just the big customers; small customers are doing the same. They’re investing money, which is good. New investment is what has been lacking for a couple of years.
