    Enhancing PCB Assembly: Innovations for Quality and Automation
    Kim Engmark - Country Manager: Denmark - Nordes

    During the presentation, we will present innovative PCB assembly strategies, focusing on process optimization for improved productivity and product quality, using Nordes as an example. We will also present the benefits of selective soldering in contract electronics assembly based on a case study using our ERSA VERSAFLOW 4/55 machine for selective soldering. We will also discuss automation in contract electronics manufacturing, focusing on the use of robotics to increase productivity and precision. This will be illustrated by the introduction of new technologies by Nordes, including three new machines, which we buy and which will come to Nordes in April – we tell to the audience that we have them, which will be the truth (in this time). The presentation will also cover PCB complexity and component growth, ensuring quality through PCB depanelization analysis and X-ray inspection. We can also focus on the PCB washing process and its importance to product quality.

    Swedish electronics industry - where are we headed?
    Anna Wibom - Program manager - Smartare Elektroniksystem

    The Swedish electronics industry's Agenda 2.0 extends to 2036 and is intended to be a guide for decision-makers in the Swedish electronics industry, Swedish authorities as well as national and international research funders. 

    Our industry has grown and changed since the last agenda was drawn up. New technologies and focus areas characterize our industry and as a global ecosystem the electronics industry is not isolated - it both affects and is affected by the current situation in the world and the technological shifts that are taking place.

    Unleashing potential: the future of cost-effective PCB manufacturing
    Hamza Bilgen - Sales and Business Development Manager - Bosch GmbH

    Join copperdot, a service by Bosch, for a keynote that delves into the complex world of printed circuit board (PCB) cost engineering. Our expert will speak about how the price of manufacturing a PCB is influenced by a myriad of factors, including the number of layers, complexity, materials, quantity, technology, production processes, and standards. Gain insights into the varying impact of these factors on overall costs and learn how to achieve the best price-performance ratio by carefully considering each element. Whether you're navigating demanding specifications or seeking simplicity in cost determination, this keynote will equip you with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions and optimize your PCB manufacturing projects.

    How do you manage your projects with demands on higher quality and less cost without losing track on the process?
    John Ludvigsen - Technical Sales Manager Polarion - InnoFour Scandinavia

    Embedded software is in virtually all the products we come in contact with every day. For example, there are 100+ million lines of code in automotive, 24% of Medical device recalls are due to software issues, and there's 15.4% growth in the software driven "Smart Appliance" market.

    As a result the use of embedded software is quickly infringing on hardware’s dominance in the product development process. However in many environments software development is a siloed activity that leads to disconnects between product requirements and implementation that leads to product recalls or product failures.

    In legacy software development environments, many different point solutions are used to manage the application lifecycle. As a result, development artifacts are scattered, slowing down collaboration, hindering transparency, undermining integrity and making it difficult to drive innovation.

    This presentation will cover the challenges in today’s embedded software development and how we can help organizations with a unified solution that divers project transparency through real-time aggregated management information. It enables everyone to be aligned around what is being built and why, to drive advancement while protecting integrity and compliance. This approach helps teams respond faster and with better quality to new business opportunities and customer demands. The presentation will also show how it’s possible to work with different stakeholders like clients and managers and with those that are in the project so that everybody has a real-time view of the status of the project.
