at productronica 2013
As the International Trade Fair for Innovative Electronics Production, productronica is the most important platform for promoting important topics on the marketplace: Besides technologies that have a promising future, the fair also pays special attention to established sectors. productronica takes place at the Messe München trade-fair center from November 12 - 15.
Once again, this year's productronica will feature four highlight topics that will be the focus of attention in forums, roundtable discussions and special shows. They are being organized in conjunction with the Productronics Association in the VDMA (German Engineering Federation) and the ZVEI (German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association).
Technologies for cable processing and connectors
Without cables, there would be no energy turnaround, no electromobility, no high-speed Internet and no contact-free measuring techniques. Reliability starts with the selection of materials and cable manufacturing, but it must also be guaranteed when processing cables. If cables or connectors fail during or after installation, the consequences can be expensive or even fatal. This topic will be discussed at the Innovation Forum in Hall B2 on November 13, the second day of the fair.
Coilware and LED manufacturing
Coilware manufacturing is magnetic-field design at the highest level. In this manufacturing sector, efficiency depends on a number of critical factors. To meet this challenge, materials, design and processing techniques must be perfectly coordinated. Increasing energy efficiency is also a key topic when it comes to LED manufacturing. On Thursday, November 14, the productronica Forum in Hall A1 will shed light on the manufacture of coilware and LEDs.
For the first time ever, there will be a special show on "Coilware Manufacturing" in Hall B3 that presents the entire value chain in coilware manufacturing - from the refinery to materials, distributors, machines and final applications - on all four days of the fair. The special show is being organized in conjunction with the Electrical Winding & Insulation Systems Association (EWIS) in the ZVEI.
Efficient production management and Industry 4.0
To move the entire production process forward and make it more transparent, future projects such as Industry 4.0 and production-related systems like MES (Manufacturing Execution System) or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) are key factors for the industry. They make optimized process control, automation and intelligent resource planning possible. Efficient production management and Industry 4.0 are this year's highlight topic at the Innovation Forum in Hall B2 on November 14, the third day of the fair.
On the first day of the fair, i.e. November 12, the panel of prominent participants in the CEO Roundtable will discuss "Industry 4.0 - Opportunities and Challenges for a Competitive Production of Tomorrow".
Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS)
Outsourcing in times of anticipated bottlenecks and promising new lines of business are increasing the demands that the EMS sector places on productronica. That is why the Speakers Corner in the PCB & EMS Marketplace is focusing on this topic on Wednesday, November 13. This highlight day will be rounded out by the presentation of the "BestEMS 2013" award by WEKA Verlag.
from 12 to 15 November 2013, Fair ground Munich (Germany)
