Leading distributor of capital equipment for electronics assembly in the UK and Ireland, Altus Group, has partnered with Fuji, principal manufacturer of SMT and assembly machines and tools, to host ‘The Factory of the Future’ event on 19 & 20 October 2022 at the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Centre (AMTC) in Coventry, UK.
The 2-day technology event will allow electronics manufacturers the opportunity to understand emerging technology within the sector and the processes that will help to improve production. With 12 speakers lined up to present, including representatives from Fuji, Koh Young, Heller, LPKF, Essemtec, Asscon, YJ Link and Lazpiur, and over 20 machines on display, the company says the technology day will benefit all those attending.
“We are delighted to launch this brand-new Factory of the Future event in partnership with Fuji,” Joe Booth, Altus CEO said. “It will give our customers and prospects the chance to visit the MTC and absorb what is a superb speaker and machine line-up.
“The market is in a great place with investment and process improvement ideas, but for many over the last period, it has been difficult getting hands on time and the opportunity to learn what is new. We hope that this event will allow people to learn more about industry hot topics, understand established solutions and experience the innovative new equipment in action.”
“The event looks like it will be a great showcase for the industry to see the best-in-class technology in action,” Jonas Ernst, Assistant General Manager at Fuji added. “Alongside Altus Group, there isn’t a production process that is not covered across the two days. We at Fuji are excited to present the very latest in our hardware offerings and software capabilities, but more importantly, connect with our existing customers and prospective users at a great period for UK and Irish investment.”
The event will be hosted by experts at Altus and Fuji. The programme will include a number of key speakers covering everything from 3D inspection data and AI for automatic process improvement, to the latest developments in vapour phase soldering and the all-important topic of reshoring production to Europe.
“Working in partnership with Fuji has enabled us to pull together a really impressive event that will allow attendees the opportunity to find out the latest information to improve manufacturing processes and explore the latest technology. It will ultimately provide a platform for those interested in turnkey solutions to boost productivity.
“…We look forward to welcoming delegates from across the UK and Ireland.”
