IN WHAT CATEGORIES IS THE AWARD PRESENTED?
The award reflects the breakdown of exhibits at the international trade fair productronica: In 2015, the trade fair‘s 19 different exhibition sectors were incorporated into a new cluster structure that corresponds to the value chain for electronics manufacturing.
The new structure is also reflected by the fair‘s hall assignments: The individual segments are more clearly bundled, which makes planning your visit to the fair more efficient. This year‘s fair will also feature an additional category for „Inspection, Test & Quality.“ The various clusters are as follows:
- PCB & EMS cluster
PCB and circuit-carrier manufacturing, Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS)
- SMT cluster
Component mount technology, solider technology, product finishing, production subsystems, production logistics and material-flow technology
- Inspection & Quality cluster
Test and measurement, quality assurance and inspection solutions
- Semiconductor cluster
Semiconductor production, display production, LEDs and discrete components, photovoltaics production, micronano production, clean-room technology, materials processing
- Cables, Coils & Hybrids cluster
Production technologies for cables and connectors, coilware production and hybrid-component manufacturing
- Future Markets cluster
IT to Production, Industry 4.0, production technologies for batteries and electrical-energy storage, organic/printed electronics, 3D printing, additive manufacturing
