Besides focusing on the application of traditional industries, NEPCON China 2012, based on current hotspots and future trends, creates two additional specialized exhibition sections — ESD and Electronics Manufacturing Automation. The ESD section mainly exhibits anti-static products and EPA products, while the Electronics Manufacturing Automation section provides a collective show of the application solutions of the most advanced industrial automation technology and products in the electronics manufacturing industries, serving as the only trading and purchasing platform in China that provides automation solutions for electronics manufacturers and electronics manufacturing equipment suppliers.
As the vane in China’s electronics production equipment and electronics manufacturing industry, NEPCON China has made constant innovations in many aspects such as professional conferences, onsite events, etc. to help participants get a more comprehensive and thorough understanding of the development trends of the electronics manufacturing market. April 25 witnesses the brilliant debut of the SMTA China East Conference 2012, Engineers’ Salon and SMT Home Member Gathering, Printed and Flexible Electronics Industry Development Forum, and East China Manual Welding Competition. Summit Forum 2012 on Anti-Static Industry China, SMT Senior Talents Gathering, Anhui Software Association SMT Committee Conference and other activities will take place on April 26 and 27.
Additionally, the wine tasting party hosted for invited buyers and diamond VIPs will provide an interactive platform for elites and leaders of the electronics field to communicate with each other. These comprehensive onsite activities will give an in-depth analysis of the status quo and trends of the electronics manufacturing industry and technological hotspots, electronics manufaturing automation, in particular, which will become an indispensable part in driving the industry forward in the future.
What’s more, Green Lighting Shanghai 2012, concurrently held with NEPCON China 2012 and hosted by Reed and CSA, will present a series of scientific achievements made in the LED lighting industrial chain from materials, production and test equipment to product applications and solutions that bring out the best in each other by matching and sharing resources.
