SMT topics in focus
ASMPT, in partnership with representative SMarTsol Technologies, today announced that it closed out its 2023 Technology Days program in Juarez, MX, one of the region’s most vibrant and growing technology centers. Indicative of Juarez’s electronics landscape, the well-attended event attracted EMS and OEM manufacturers serving the industrial, consumer, and automotive industries, among others. The interactive program was designed to address the primary drivers of global competitiveness – efficiency, quality, and high yield – and showcase how ASMPT’s Intelligent Factory portfolio enables more resilient, high-productivity operations.
“Juarez has historically been a strong automotive and industrial electronics manufacturing locale due to its well-trained workforce and proximity to the United States,” explained Mark Ogden, ASMPT Americas Marketing Manager. “With recent shifts in global supply chain structures and nearshoring acceleration, the region has become even more attractive for electronics production across the application spectrum. To be cost-competitive in the North American market, electronics assembly operations must maximize the return on every hardware, software, and personnel asset. Our guests learned how ASMPT delivers on these objectives.”
