More than 200 representatives from companies such as Huawei, CRRC, NASA, Foxconn, Vayo and JWI Software gathered in Shenzhen, China for IPC CEMAC 2019. This year’s theme, “Intelligent Future Driven by Data,” provided attendees insight into Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things (IoT), electronic component 3D digital design, the use of data to drive intelligent manufacturing and the demand for high quality/highly reliable products.
Peter Chiang, vice president, IPC Greater China, opened the annual members-only event, with an introduction to the implementation of Industry 4.0 and release of IPC-2591, IPC’s connected factory exchange standard. Huang Chunguang, Huawei Technologies, Co. Ltd., discussed the important role of 3D digitalization of electronics components during his presentation, “Software Defines Manufacturing, Data Drives the Future.” Luo Jiapeng, Foxconn, introduced Foxconn’s SMT Industrial Internet blueprint and framework during his presentation, “Data -- the Foundation of Intelligent Manufacturing.”
In addition, presentations were given by: Bhanu Sood, Ph.D., NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; Chen Zhiman, CRRC Times Electric; Johnsson Per Anders, JWI Software; Liu Fengshou, Vayo; and Du Yunliang, Mentor Graphics – a subsidiary of Siemens. The event provided ample time for professionals from various industries including aerospace, railway, telecommunication and electronics manufacturing to network with speakers.
“China accounts for up to 38 percent of the global electronics industry production capacity of nearly 2 trillion USD,” said David Bergman, IPC vice president, standards and training. “The rapidly growing Chinese electronics industry market share creates opportunities and challenges for domestic electronics-related enterprises. As a global electronics industry association, IPC is committed to the promotion of technical exchanges and providing enterprises with the latest technical standards and training to drive further development of the industry. IPC’s annual CEMAC event provides the perfect backdrop for these technical exchanges.”
Next year’s IPC CEMAC will be located in Shanghai. For more information about this event or other IPC-sponsored events in Asia Pacific, visit www.ipc.org.cn.
