The Best of Electronics Manufacturing: Automation System Integration to Be NEPCON China 2015 Highlight

News reports claim that foreign companies are leaving China in numbers.  So are major manufacturing operations, as evidenced by cases of Microsoft and Nokia, who both recently shut down their China plants. Uniqlo, Foxconn, Clarion and Samsung are also accelerating the transfer of their manufacturing activities to other countries. The made-in-China label is losing its aura.

The chain reaction of international firms leaving China is putting immediate pressure on traditional electronics manufacturers, who have to shift to hi-tech, automated production to survive and develop, as hi-tech automation equipment starts to render manual processes out-of-date, and push the envelope of processing capacity. NEPCON China 2015, planned for the Shanghai Expo Center from 21-23 April, will drive industry transformation and act as a powerful barometer for future trends.

Leading Automation System Integrators Join: A New Start For Automated Electronics Manufacturing

Rising costs are pushing the manufacturing sector, especially electronics manufacturers, away from outdated, low-efficiency capacity. With rising state investment in hi-tech, high-end manufacturing, favorable market conditions and policies are creating promising conditions for automated electronics manufacturers.

NEPCON China 2015 will bring together leading automation system integrators like Intelligent Group Zhuhai, Robo-Technik, Nitto Denko, Apeexpress, JOT Automation, and IPTE, demonstrating the prevailing great developmental momentum.

This installment of NEPCON China will offer a wide range of automated electronics manufacturing equipment, including industrial robotics, automation agents, warehousing, mobile terminals, electronic fitting and electronic measurement.  It will target a wide range of markets, from automotive to tablets.  Trade visitors will be able to find the desired products at the event, and be introduced to the leading technologies that complete key processes.
IPTE, a Belgian company established in 1992, is a global leader of automation technologies (Booth: A-1F30). As an industry pioneer, IPTE provides advanced automation equipment as well as a comprehensive automation solution, helping customers on the path towards full integration and automation in electronic and mechanical manufacturing processes.

SMT backend is the key to full automation development. At NEPCON China 2015, IPTE will demonstrate its outstanding full automation solutions, including BTR+ IPTE MFT19’ (TSi) + IPTE ETH (i1000) + IPTE ETH (burners) + IPTE ETH (functional test) +BTR. Three ETH in tandem, setup in dual tracks, will demonstrate a new safe, fast test solution that runs seamlessly to eliminate test bottlenecks or the need for human intervention. The full automation solution provided by IPTE helps electronic and mechanical makers to fully automate production and testing, while significantly improving the quality of products and enhancing production capacity. The IPTE demonstration will be at 10:30am and 2:30pm each show day. Customers old and new are welcome to visit us at Booth A-1F30.

Since its founding in Zhuhai in 2006, Intelligent Group Zhuhai (Booth A-1D58) has been committed to electronic full automation production and assembly, including providing high-quality automation solutions tailored to satisfy customer needs. It has obtained multiple automation patents and brought innovative concepts to the industry. 

Intelligent Group Zhuhai brings its brand new PCBA MTL-20 to the event. Thanks to modular design including test cramps, racks, and a mechanic arm, MTL-20 provides a high-efficiency solution that enables quick replacement and measurable results. In a single rack, multiple tests can be run simultaneously. The mechanic arm grabs target test plates. The camera positions the plate. Preliminary positioning is done before the target moves to the cramps. The target plate will be placed in the cramps following calculation. The solution can be used in consumer electronics, automotive electronic systems, telecommunication, medical equipment, and new energy, supporting functional test, firmware burning, and RF tuning, among other applications.

Intelligent Group Zhuhai will also demo its ABS-100, an automatic solution to attach strengthening plates on soft boards. The vision system enables precise positioning. The solution can be used in soft board sector and is proven to be highly efficient and economical.

Automation Integration: Biggest Event Highlight Promises To Boost Emerging Smart Application Development

Many exhibitors have used NEPCON China as a key opportunity to demonstrate leading products and technology concepts.  This enhances core competitiveness and raises great interest among visitors.

NEPCON China 2015 highlights advanced electronics manufacturing automation and system integration technologies, with many exhibitors offering both technologies at booths that combine electronic terminals and practical system integration solutions. Customers can get much more than a simple robotic arm. System integrators play a key role in bridging automation suppliers and end users. Instead of a crude event offering simple products, NEPCON China 2015 is the only procurement platform in China that focuses on automation solutions targeting electronics manufacturers and electronic product providers. Thus, electronics manufacturing and system integration will remain the most promising field in process industry upgrades for years to come.

Friendly Service, Expert Management: NEPCON launches Targeted Attendee Program

Apart from new products and technologies, NEPCON China 2015 will run a TAP service, including business matching services that will help participants catch up with industry trends and engage industry leaders. High-quality trade visitors will benefit from this high-level communication platform that will ably serves their procurement needs. TAP visitors will get very the latest on electronics manufacturing products and technologies. They will also get to meet their target suppliers onsite. The TAP services will offer the best possible visitor experience.

Looking ahead to NEPCON China 2015, we expect the electronics manufacturing and system integration expo to bring together industry elites whose presence is proof of the grand promise of electronics manufacturing and system integration. China is transitioning from made in China to smart manufacturing in China. A revolution is happening in electronics manufacturing automation. NEPCON China 2015 will play a big role in driving this industry-wide upgrade forward.
