80 submissions for the 3rd productronica innovation award 2019!

The electronics manufacturing industry is playing its trump cards

80 exhibitors of productronica 2019, the world‘s leading trade fair for electronics development and production, responded to the call to send their innovations into the race for the first independent award in electronics manufacturing—the productronica innovation award. We have received applications from every cluster from all over the world. As was to be expected, the share of the SMT cluster was the largest, but there were also several applicants for the PCB & EMS clusters, the Future Markets cluster, the Semiconductor cluster and the Cables, Coils & Hybrids cluster. The “Inspection & Quality” cluster launched in 2017 was also well received, so that the “Inspection & Quality” category will once again see the presentation of an award this year.

The submissions show where the journey in electronics manufacturing will take us in the future. Reliability and efficiency are of primary importance for these developments. In addition to established leaders in electronics manufacturing, smaller companies are also eager to earn the award with their product innovations—which is highly commendable.

And here they are, all the innovations submitted for the 3rd productronica innovation award 2019:

The fact that Messe München, in close cooperation with the trade journal Productronic published by Hüthig Verlag, knew how to read the signs of the times becomes clear by the high number of entries submitted by exhibitors eager to win the trophy.

Product innovations and manufacturing processes must meet very clear criteria in order to have a chance of winning the first productronica innovation award: They must be technically innovative or economical, show a novel design or be easy to integrate into systems. The productronica innovation award is the first independent award in the electronics manufacturing industry and will be presented by productronica on the first day of the trade fair (November 12, 2019). All exhibitors of productronica 2019 and SEMICON Europa 2019 will have the opportunity to present themselves in an impressive way at a forum that is unique in the world.
