NEPCON China to Host First Edition at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center in 2012

Dec 01, 2011

Reed Exhibitions recently announced that NEPCON China 2012 will take place at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center from April 25-27. The event will boast four new segments featuring electronic static discharge, electronics manufacturing automation, advanced electronics packaging and touch panel.

The new segments are a direct response to prevailing trends and emerging needs in electronics manufacturing today. As the largest trade and exchange platform for Asia’s electronics manufacturing and SMT industries, the annual NEPCON China event introduces numerous new innovations to the regional market. To date, 95 percent of available booths have been sold.

NEPCON China 2012 is expected to attract 500 leading electronics manufacturing companies, including Assembléon, Agilent, ASM (Siplace), Sony, Hitachi, Samsung, Panasonic, Fuji, Henkel, Yamaha, Tokyo Juki and DEK. Additionally, several exhibitors such as IKO, NBK, Mingrui, Fenglei and Kilews will participate in the show for the first time. They will showcase diverse ranges of new technologies, the latest products and advanced solutions for the electronics manufacturing and SMT industries. The exhibits will include SMT technologies and equipment; soldering equipment and materials; test and measurement devices; electronic static discharge (ESD) and purifying machines; bar code scanners and materials; components; electrical and mechanical assembly production equipment; EMS and more. In total, thousands of SMT and electronics manufacturing equipment will be displayed.

To meet the challenges posed by current industry issues and to satisfy future development trends, NEPCON China 2012 will do more than just focus on traditional applications. The event also will launch four new segments: the ESD & Clean Room Segment, the Electronics Manufacturing Automation Segment, the Advanced Electronics Packaging Segment and the Touch Panel Segment.

The Electronic Static Discharge & Clean Room Segment will feature ESD and EPA products. Additionally, it will host electronic static discharge forums in conjunction with key trade associations. These debates will explore advanced local and international ESD concepts and technologies, and focus on combining theory with practice to resolve the ESD challenges that arise during application. To do this, they will analyze representative cases and engage in face-to-face discussion with key industry experts.

The Advanced Electronics Packaging Segment will showcase cutting-edge production technologies and equipment, including semiconductors, LED equipment and power devices. The segment’s exhibits will cover packaging equipment, as well as etching tools, plating products and related technologies.

Today, due to rapid technological development, the pressure exerted by rising operational costs (particularly labor costs) and the demand by manufacturers for high flexibility and efficiency, industrial automation solutions are becoming increasingly popular across the entire electronics manufacturing chain.

The Electronics Manufacturing Automation Segment will focus on application resolutions for the electronics manufacturing industry’s most advanced industrial automation technologies and products. It will be the only trade platform to specialize in providing automated solutions for electronics manufacturers and electronic manufacturing equipment suppliers.

As China has become a key hub for the production of touch panels, Japanese and Taiwanese companies that rely on these technologies have begun to establish manufacturing bases on the mainland. At the same time, the country’s touch panel market expects to expand at a rate that will create a huge market for manufacturers of these monitors. As well as screens, the Touch Panel Segment will showcase related materials, manufacturing equipment and test machines.

The four new segments are sure to be among the highlights of NEPCON China 2012.

Green Lighting Shanghai 2012, co-organized by the CSA and Reed Exhibitions, will be collocated with NEPCON China. The lighting event will demonstrate the full range of scientific research results from across the entire lighting industry chain. This will include exhibits featuring cutting-edge manufacturing equipment, materials, product applications and solutions. By sharing a platform with NEPCON China 2012, Green Lighting Shanghai will attract an even higher quality of visitor from the LED field.

Michiel Kruse, Vice President of Reed Exhibitions East China, said,” We are committed to driving the electronics manufacturing industry’s development and pursuing sustained innovation across all our NEPCON events. To support the show’s new positioning and to adapt to the strategic regional and industrial changes electronics manufacturing has undergone, NEPCON China 2012 will relocate to the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center. The new venue’s state-of-the-art facilities, convenient transportation links and other outstanding event-hosting capabilities will help us match the expectations of exhibitors and visitors to the show.  The local and international electronics manufacturing community, as well as the SMT industry and supporting trade organizations from all over the globe, can look forward to a world-class exhibition experience at NEPCON China 2012.”
