The issues presented will explain the relationship between technology with a specific type of printed circuit board construction and common production problems. Key indicators affecting the price of the finished product will be discussed.
- 10:10 - 10:40SPECIAL GUEST - Development of space engineering in AGH Space Systems projectsŁukasz Kwinta - AGH Space Systems electronics team - AGH University of Science and TechnologySebastian Patrias - AGH Space Systems electronics team - AGH University of Science and Technology
AGH Space Systems is an interdisciplinary group of engineers carrying out space engineering projects. We will present issues related to the development of hybrid and liquid-fuel rocket systems, fuel fabrication methods, research payload launching capabilities, experimentation and rocket recovery. The second project is the use of a modular Mars rover to conduct analogue planetary missions. We will show the realisation of scientific missions, terrain reconnaissance and autonomous navigation, as well as work support and assistance for the astronaut. We will also discuss experiments carried out in the stratosphere using balloons and research payload nacelles.

- 10:45 - 11:15Competition law for entrepreneurs.Maria Kanak - legal advisor / owner of - Legal Counsel's Office, specialist in the field of competition protection lawIn 2009. European Commission fined Intel €1.1 billion, in 2014. Infineon Technologies AG was fined more than €82 million and in 2019 a fine of €1.49 billion was imposed on Google. In all cases, the penalties related to prohibited anti-competitive practices. What are anti-competitive practices and what are the legal risks of their use on our, national ground? Can anti-competitive practices be committed accidentally or are they always intentional? What is the legal liability for such practices and does this liability always apply only to the trader and never to his manager? And finally, is the entrepreneur liable for the intentional acts of his employee? During the presentation, we will try to answer the above questions, pointing out the issues that should be taken into account by the trader in the process of defining the trader's policy of action on the market, in order to correctly identify and limit possible legal and competitive risks.
- 11:20 - 11:50How to increase PCB depaneling efficiency with Laser TechnologyThorne Lietz - Senior Sales Manager - InnoLas Solutions GmbH
Laser depaneling is becoming more widely used since the demand for excellent cutting quality and increasing cost pressure require one to reevaluate the use of traditional production methods. For example, laser depaneling provides the highest technical cleanliness that improves the durability of electronics, increase yield and reduces manufacturing costs. Furthermore, laser technology provides a new path to increase panel efficiency and therefore reduce material waste and costs.
- 11:55 - 12:25Commercialization of R&D research results at Łukasiewicz IMIF - challenges and opportunitiesPaweł Kubiński - Management & Engineering, Business Development, B2B, Project Manager IPMA - Łukasiewicz - Institute of Microelectronics and Photonics
Even despite their high commercial potential, many potentially disruptive technologies are not commercialized due to various obstacles such as low economic levels, insufficient technological maturity, or a lack of dialogue between industry and academia. Therefore, the commercialization of R+D research is a difficult task that requires careful planning for its efficient implementation. In this approach, this contribution sums up the opportunities for industry, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises, to carry out research and development works to commercialize semiconductor technologies devoted to integrated circuits, gallium nitride and silicon carbide-based systems or quantum cascade lasers.
- 12:35 - 13:05Thermally conductive materials - what to pay attention to when choosing the right productMarcin Mierzejewski - Thermal specialist - DACPOL Sp. z o.o. / KERAFOL - Keramische Folien GmbH & Co. KG
The lecture aims to present the basic properties of thermally conductive materials and to discuss the features that these properties affect, based on Kerafol products. Knowledge of the described parameters will help determine the criteria for selecting the appropriate solution.
- 13:10 - 13:40Automation of the soldering process of THT through-hole components for micro, small and medium-sized companiesKarol Sowa - Company Owner / Process Specialist - Sowa Electronics, in cooperation with Pillarhouse International LtdRising costs of energy, employment, materials and components have a negative impact on the profitability of Polish Electronics Companies and OEMs. During the lecture, we will try to answer the following questions: how much does the purchase and implementation of a selective soldering machine cost and after what time such an investment would pay off.
- 13:45 - 14:15Do you know all your costs of labelling and identification for traceability. How to save money on this.Michael Rosenwirth - Product Manager - AdoptSMT Polska Spółka z o.o.
Show our customers what the hidden costs of labeling are, how they arise and how they can be minimized.
Furthermore, we will explain why it makes sense to talk to a full service provider instead of 3 – 5 parties just to save a little bit of money.
- 14:20 - 14:50Quality expectations for acrylic against silicon and UV varnish application.Attila Nagy - Regional Sales Manager, Strategic Partnership Accounts Manager - Nordson Electronic SolutionsTomasz Dublasiewicz - Operations Manager - Amtest Group
In the industry we see tendency moving from acrylic materials towards to higher viscosity protective coatings. For this reason is interesting to review the differences in quality expectation in terms of accuracy and the general quality acceptance criteria.
- 14:55 - 15:25Component EOL/Obsolescence- How to extend product lifecycles?Paul Mason - Global Technology Director - Rochester Electronics
Electronic Component lifecycles between launch and Obsolescence are shortening. Improvement in die manufacturing technology and increase in electronic components usage in new technologies and markets causing shortening of life cycles. AI(Artificial Intelligence), consumer electronics, limited fabrication capacity and changes in packages are driving faster change. Obsolescence is therefore affecting more companies, more frequently than ever before. In his presentation Paul will speak about the impact of obsolescence in Memory devices and how it can be managed.
- 15:30 - 16:00Sources of poor soldering quality in reflow ovens and how to prevent them.Olaf Ciepły - Global Sales Manager - IBL-Löttechnik GmbH
Usually bad quality of solder connections are detected when the product leaves the reflow oven or when a broken product is returned back from a customer. It is worth considering and analysing where is the real source of these problems. Reducing these will improve the production and repair cost finally leading to satisfied your customers.
