SMART Group European Conference Looks to Be the Best Ever

Jun 11, 2013

 SMART Group, Europe’s largest technical trade association focusing on surface mount and related technologies, announces that its annual SMART Group European Conference & Table Top Exhibition will be held from 2-3 October 2013 at the Spread Eagle Hotel in Cornmarket Thame, Oxfordshire, England.

As the competitive advantage swings back to Europe, successful companies will benefit from the resulting business opportunities. The SMART Group’s upcoming conference can help attendees and their companies be ready to recognize and attain these opportunities. The conference will feature quality papers by international speakers targeted to benefit managers as well as production and quality engineers. The supporting table top exhibition will provide delegates with the benefit of meeting experts from specialist suppliers.

As business returns to Europe, it is imperative that companies improve their efficiency in order to win this new business,” said Keith Bryant, SMART Group’s Chairman. “The objective of the conference is to provide focused sessions that will help our members as well as the industry be placed well and informed enough to take advantage of these opportunities.”

Four high-quality sessions will deliver theoretical and practical information to drive down costs while improving efficiency. The session topics will focus on production and quality control as well as management and compliance issues:

• Material selection, selecting the appropriate specification for the job in particular
• Answering the age-old question “How Clean Is Clean”
• Latest techniques in fault analysis and inspection
• Update on the latest compliance and environmental standards and how to turn legislative costs into benefits
• Protecting against counterfeit components

The three production/quality control sessions will emphasize material selection, process improvement and shop floor issues. The fourth session is designed for management level and will concentrate on cost reduction, specifically turning EHS issues into cost savings rather than compliance costs.
