What’s going on in this crazy world of ours? Does the rise of populism, protectionism and polarization mean the end of multilateralism and globalization? The answer is “yes and no” but mainly “no” for the electronics industry. Mycronic sees a continued trend towards global, interconnected ecosystems, but there will be a clearer division between East and West.
For years, we’ve been hearing: “5G is coming and it’s going to transform our world!” Really? In what ways? Or is this just hype? According to Mycronic experts, no. New 5G technology, with up to 100 times faster speeds than today’s 4G, will open exciting new possibilities for consumers and businesses. And it’s already placing tough demands on manufacturers as well!
As makers of automation technologies, it’s no surprise that we see automation as the number-one driver in our industry. What is interesting, however, is the speed, impact, and far-reaching implications of this global megatrend. Those who hesitate to get onboard risk being left behind.
Debating whether to upgrade from racks and shelves to an intelligent material handling system? With the help of Mycronic's storage towers, one Florida-based electronics manufacturer shows how smarter material handling not only cuts kitting times and repetitive manual work – it can also significantly increase production volume.
Since its introduction over a decade ago, solder paste jet printing has continued to improve the quality and versatility of electronics manufacturers worldwide. This is especially true in the world of high-mix electronics, where the high accuracy and high flexibility of software-driven assembly processes are crucial to competitiveness. Now, with faster jetting speeds, a wider range of compatible solder pastes and tightly integrated solder paste inspection (SPI) capabilities, jet printing has matured into a powerful platform for increased production efficiency and improved first-pass yield.
Mycronic regularly collaborates with local universities around the world. And we support initiatives that encourage young people to choose careers in engineering. These activities increase Mycronic’s visibility in the local community with the aim to encourage more youth to engineering careers.
