The event Systems Integration organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network will take place January 16, 2018 and will address digitalization and its effects on the automation of the production and development of new micro-technical and MEMS components and products.
The Systems Integration 2018 takes place at the CSEM Center Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique in Alpnach, Switzerland.
CSEM is a Swiss privately owned non-profit R&D company specializing in micro- and nanotechnology, microelectronics, systems engineering, photovoltaics and communications technologies. With around 450 employees, a turnover of CHF 80 million is generated. CSEM is realizing the transfer of micro- and nanotechnologies to the industry in Switzerland, Europe and worldwide.
In the course of the focus on "digitalization", the experts will discuss in January how the addition of digital tools and concepts to traditional manufacturing processes will enable a more effective, time-saving and cost-effective production. Through automated production and quality control, defects can be avoided and customer satisfaction can be increased.
Within two conference sessions entitled “Industrial Automation” and “Innovative Production Processes” the status of the introduction of IT-supported solutions will be presented.
The experts refer to perspectives of their fields of practice and research, such as machine learning, robotics, electronics and digital manufacturing as well as on current questions like: Which hardware components are necessary and available? What software is available? How far should or can automation go? How can new production processes, e.g. the printing of electronic components on flexible substrates, be integrated into established processes? Which new products are possible by adding digital properties?
This is followed by discussions and a guided tour through the premises of the CSEM. The conference language is German.
Systems Integration is a series of conferences that the IVAM Microtechnology Network has been conducting regularly since 2008 with varying partners and varying topics in different European countries.
It offers manufacturers and users the opportunity to exchange ideas about intelligent applications of micro-technical solutions. The emphasis is on the integration of different processes and products into systems. The previous events took place in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Finland.
