"Future Packaging" production line

Experience the "Future Packaging" production line exclusively at the SMTconnect. It is organized annually "live" on site by Fraunhofer IZM and reproduces the complete assembly process including subsequent test procedures. Live demonstrations will take place several times throughout the exhibition. Trade visitors can find out about technologies and discuss issues and challenges with experts in the field in the context of annually changing thematic focal points.

The Line "See the REAL DEAL" – Live Production Line since 1997

In 2024: Automation and Digitalization for robust processes and technologies

The development steps to realize a product are getting smaller, but no less important. The devil is in the details, so the entire production line and its partners revolve around the small and large tasks necessary to create robust processes.

"Robust" simply means that the whole process doesn't get out of hand with the usual param-eter shifts. 

The different approaches to the robustness challenge taken by the 18 partners of the Fu-ture Packaging Line and the complementing co-exhibitors will provide invaluable insight during your visit to this only live production line.

The condensed knowledge of all technological steps of modern assembly and integration starting from incoming inspection to outgoing inspection along the whole value chain from board cleaning to board verification, printing, pick&place, reflow, all different kinds of tests, mechanical and laser depaneling, is year after year inspiration to the visitors.

Everyone takes home insight, knowledge and new ideas. The latest procedures or detailed improvements to existing solutions can be examined in-depth with the experts and dis-cussed at leisure during the three daily tours.

Processes are often viewed as a “black box”, the Future Packaging line helps you make this box transparent and understandable. Of course, all dependencies of the processes can be shown and made insightful in their digitalized form and structure. There is also enough time between the tours to sit down with the individual partners in detail and find solutions. That's what it's all about: TOGETHER!

The assembled pool of experts is there just for you during the trade fair, so take advantage of this unique opportunity.

Guided tours of live production take place daily at 10:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. in Hall 4, Booth 4-305.
