Smart Factory 1.0 Forum explores electronics manufacturing upgrade

Smart technologies are becoming the defining force of our times. In post-financial crisis world, ICT represented by internet, big data, and cloud computing is increasingly impacting physical economy. Big economies realize the value of an advanced manufacturing sector, as they develop measures to advance new concepts such as Industry 4.0 and industrial internet. China is upgrading its manufacturing sector amid the drive for smart technologies.
As early as June 2012, CSAA put forward a strategic and proactive concept of China Smart Factory 1.0 to promote manufacturing upgrade in China. The smart factory concept has become an industry focus in recent years, with its implications, results and implementation strategies arduously explored. Joining hands with Reed Exhibitions, CSAA will launch the NEPCON and Smart Factory 1.0 – Future of Electronics Manufacturing forum on 26 April, with industry experts sharing the transition of the electronics manufacturing industry to smart factory.

China has seen rapid growth of the electronics manufacturing sector in recent years, with most electronics manufacturing featuring strong automation capacity that handles mass production of commodity products with efficiency. However, as the market demands shift to mass customization, smarter automation is required to connect previous silos along the production line to achieve flexible, smart production. The forum will provide answers to company executives as they seek smart upgrade of the industry.

Printed Electronics and Micro-Packaging of Smart Wearables Forum address MES challenges

With the development of telecommunications, computing, and micro-electronics technologies, wearables are rising that combine both hardware and software to leverage data exchange, clouding connectivity for big functionality to enhance people’s lives and how they perceive the world around.

In the race of towards lower power consumption, lower costs, and smaller form factor wearables, MES players have to address micro-assembly challenges. What are the wearables development trends? How printed electronics is to impact wearables application? What are some of the design and process solutions for tiny components of wearables? The Printed Electronics and Micro-Packaging of Smart Wearables Forum to take place on 25 April will share the answers to these questions.

China ESD 2017 Forum focuses on smart equipment reliability

With the rise of electronics and telecommunications technologies, our daily work and lives benefit from smart technologies found in smart facilities and devices. People are increasingly relying on smart equipment for convenience. Therefore, reliability of smart equipment is of increasing significance as affects quality of daily life as well as personal and financial safety. ESD is an integral part of electronics technologies that is indispensable to ensure safety.
China ESD Forum has been part of the NEPCON event for years. The 2017 edition will take place on the afternoon of 26 April. Under the theme of smart life and ESD, industry experts will share with participants about ESD standards, certification, and solutions.

NEPCON Engineers Salon & SMT Family Meeting: brainstorming launched

How do SMT engineers enhance their value propositions in the internet times? On 27 April, 150 SMT Family members will meet at NEPCON China 2017 for face-to-face communication. The online forum leaders will speak about hot topics of interest to SMT engineers to launch great brainstorming sessions.

The SMT Family is the biggest online community of SMT colleagues, feature over 500,000 active users. The exchange will feature guest speakers who share the latest knowledge, opportunities, and challenges of the industry and answer member questions. The session is open to all SMT Family members for pre-registration.

Key trends such as IoT, big data, and personalized electronics products put quantity and speed demands on electronics manufacturing. Traditional manufacturing struggles to address rapid change and high quantities that are the trends of future market. The sweeping smart waves across the industry are promoting industry update. The four forums have been part of the NEPCON event for years, and each year have provided key insights for upgrading companies and industry colleagues to help them grasp key trending.
