Exhibitors who focus on automation system integration serve as a key bridge between equipment providers and end users. These exhibitors demonstrate smart applications featuring electronics manufacturing automation and system integration. Unlike other automation equipment shows, NEPCON China is the only event in China to focus on end-use electronic equipment makers and electronics manufacturing equipment providers. The show is a business and procurement platform that helps local electronics makers move from simple manufacturing to smart factories.

Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.
