Altus Group, distributor of capital equipment for electronics assembly in the UK and Ireland, has partnered with Fuji, principal manufacturer of SMT and assembly machines and tools, to host ‘The Factory of the Future’ event this October at the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Centre (AMTC), Coventry, England.

The two-day technology event will allow electronics manufacturers the opportunity to understand emerging technology within the sector and the processes that will help to improve production.

There will be speakers from some of the leading companies in the industry, including kolb Cleaning Technology, Cencorp Automation, YJ Link, Koh Young, Heller, LPKF, Essemtec, Asscon, and Quality Line – with topics on everything from manufacturing process improvements, automation solutions, board handling and data analysis processes.

Joe Booth, Altus CEO, said: “The response to our technology event has been very exciting! The market is keen to get out and take part, they want to listen, learn, meet suppliers and see brand new hardware as they plan for process optimisation projects for 2023.

“It will give our customers and prospects the chance to visit the AMTC and absorb what is a superb speaker and machine line-up.

“The market is in a great place with investment and process improvement ideas, but for many over the last period, it has been difficult getting hands on time and the opportunity to learn what is new.”

Jonas Ernst, Assistant General Manager at Fuji, added: “The event will be a great showcase for the industry to see the best-in-class technology in action. We are excited to present the very latest in our hardware offerings and software capabilities, but more importantly, connect with our existing customers and prospective users at a great period for UK and Irish investment.”

The Factory of the Future event will be hosted by senior experts at Altus and Fuji, covering everything from 3D inspection data and AI for automatic process improvement, to the latest developments in vapour phase soldering and even reshoring production to Europe.
