February 14, 2012 - Rolling Meadows, IL - Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America (PFSA) will showcase scalable, integrated, and efficient total solutions for any mix, any volume at IPC APEX 2012, booth 2829.
"I'm very excited about this year's APEX show," commented Mark Ragard, Panasonic Group Manager of Sales. "Panasonic is all about efficiency and our holistic approach is reflective of what matters to today's electronics assembly manufacturing environment: the complete process—not simply comparing machine specifications. Manufacturers need to optimize their assets for maximum profitability and that takes scalable hardware and software, integrating multi-vendor equipment lines and at-a-glance dashboards, as well as innovative off-line solutions that help turn changeovers into non-events."
Throughout the exhibit, Panasonic will reinforce its position as a low risk, sustainable ally that can provide asset protection for tomorrow's challenges with solutions like the continuously evolving Next Production Modular (NPM) platform, featuring dual-lane, versatile board-width, zero changeover time, and screen printing processes. A special interactive display will be devoted to new, efficient, off-line processes for even faster changeovers. Panasonic will also celebrate its commitment to continually invest in and refine through-hole technology, as the company has done for over 45 years. Overall, the booth will be united with a factory-like feel, highlighting modular PanaCIM® Enterprise Edition manufacturing execution system (MES) software.
“We’re positioned to help customers solve challenges whether they’re a single-module install or a facility of over 1000 or more machines,” Ragard added. “Our install base is as diverse and multi-market as one would expect from a global leader—and that brings huge additional value-add for customers regardless of their mix, volume, or size.”
