The acceptance of smart factories is a global movement across multiple industries. In electronics manufacturing specifically, China seems to be a key leader in the move to Industry 4.0. Once seen as an industrial heavyweight that depended on a huge labor pool, the environment in China has transformed.

Chinese culture has a history of adaptability, and China’s industry-leading implementation of Industry 4.0 concepts is demonstrating that essential skill to the globe once again.

What stands out about the Chinese transition is that automation—robotics, in particular—is a surprisingly small part of the whole solution. Our March issue of PCB007 Magazine includes interesting articles based on our recent visit to two Chinese PCB smart factories. You'll find direct links to those articles in this issue.

This month’s issue of PCB007 Magazine is now on the virtual newsstand, and available for delivery in your e-mailbox each month. Subscribe through your my I-Connect007 membership.
