With rapid electrification comes massive change. From electric vehicles to industrial robotics to power control systems, the world is witnessing the rollout of advanced electronics by the billions. Each more complex and more specialized than the last. And each requiring the highest levels of quality and reliability. How will manufacturers of electronics seize this growing opportunity? The latest vision technology from Mycronic points toward a faster, sharper, and smarter path forward.
For years, the electronics industry has gotten something of a “green pass” on the topic of sustainability. Digital transformation, new electronic devices and services were praised as the path to efficient, eco-friendly work patterns, particularly during the pandemic. This is now changing, Mycronic experts say.
Mr. Liu Haifeng has never been one to stick with the status quo. As General Manager of Wuxi Good Electronics Co., Ltd., he is always on the hunt for the latest production technologies, new manufacturing concepts and better ways to serve his customers. The company’s current production setup shows just how far the right technologies – and an innovative mind – can push flexible assembly into new frontiers.
When cloud-based services arrived, they were supposed to free us from the tyranny of rigid and inflexible premises-based IT solutions. And to a large extent they did, adding flexibility and driving down costs. But recently, due to the high volume of data and challenges with latency, security and privacy, many companies are realizing they need regional data centers, too.
There is nothing artificial about Artificial Intelligence (AI), according to Mycronic experts. This global megatrend is real, it’s sweeping across all industries, and it has the power to solve key manufacturing challenges. AI-tools allow for more precise manufacturing, removal of defects and predictive intelligence. And they keep on learning and getting better.
According to McKinsey, the tipping point in electric vehicle (EV) sales occurred in the fall of 2020 during the midst of the pandemic. Then, despite all the lockdowns, adoption edged up to 10% in some European countries. This signaled a clear shift in consumer behavior to sustainable mobility – further fueling the amount of electronic content required in cars.
