HKPCA & IPC Show Returns in DecemberOctober 29, 2015 | HKPCA
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
The International Printed Circuit & APEX South China Fair (HKPCA & IPC Show), one of the world's biggest PCB and electronics assembly trade shows, returns this December on a bigger scale.
To be held from December 2–4, 2015, at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center in China, the 2015 HKPCA & IPC Show will cover Halls 1, 2 and 4 to house more than 2,500 booths and over 500 exhibitors.
With the theme “Global Event. Global Vision,” HKPCA & IPC Show 2015 will feature, among others, a "Smart Automation Pavilion," which will be launched in line with the developments of Industry 4.0. This will provide attendees and delegates an opportunity to leverage on automated equipment to improve their production efficiency and create a truly intelligent production facility.
A three-day International Conference will feature global experts and luminaries to discuss a series of the hottest topics in the industry right now, such as environmental protection and energy conservation, and intelligent automation, as well as future market trends.
Other popular events such as the Technical Forum and the Hand Soldering Competition will continue to provide delegates plenty of educational and networking opportunities.
ViTrox, which aims to be the world’s most trusted technology company, is thrilled to announce its return to IPC APEX 2024, the largest electronics manufacturing event in North America. ViTrox eagerly invites visitors to explore our offerings at Booth #2642, Anaheim Convention Center, LA, from April 9th to 11th. During this time, we will unveil a series of cutting-edge inspection solutions poised to revolutionize manufacturing production lines.
You have an excellent idea for a new standard in the electronics manufacturing industry. How do you turn that idea into a reality? It’s simple: You submit a PIN to the TAEC. Now, what does that even mean? To develop a new standard, you need the help of the IPC Technical Activities Executive Committee (TAEC) Global. Ideas for new IPC standards are submitted via Project Identification Notification (PIN) to TAEC Global, which conducts an initial review. The PIN is then sent to the general TAEC standards development oversight committee for review and approval. Now, how do they review it and who comprises the committee?
When high school students face an upcoming test, they may experience a mix of dread and excitement, depending on the source material and how well they’ve prepared. Similarly, professionals sitting for a certification exam to test their knowledge of IPC standards may feel a whirlwind of emotions. However, these aren't just any exams; they’re meant for operators, engineers, and managers building the critical infrastructure of our world’s most essential electronics systems.
On the cusp of another IPC APEX EXPO, we focus on how bare board fabricators can maximize their time and investment at the show. We visited with Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist, and Julia Gumminger, IPC professional development and events manager, as well as Udo Welzel and Stanton Rak, the chairs of the technical program committee, to discuss the technical depth and breadth that the 2024 show will bring to fabricators and professionals all along the supply chain.
Each quarter, IPC releases a list of standards that are new or have been updated. To view a complete list of newly published standards and standards revisions, translations, proposed standards for ballot, final drafts for industry review, working drafts, and project approvals, visit ipc.org/status.
