FOCUS ON PCB: THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD SUPPLY CHAIN MEETS IN VICENZA

THE FIRST EUROPEAN EXHIBITION DEDICATED TO PCB AND PCBA DESIGNERS, MANUFACTURERS AND END-USER, A PEERLESS EVENT FOR IN-DEPTH TECHNOLOGICAL MASTERY, PROFESSIONAL UPDATING AND NETWORKING. ON 18th AND 19th MAY 2022 IN VICENZA EXHIBITION CENTER
Milan, 10th February 2022 – For the first time in Europe, a B2B event fully dedicated to the printed circuit board supply chain, the scope of the show ranging from design to assembly. “FocusOnPCB – From Design to Assembly” is a unique opportunity for PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards), PCBAs (Printed Circuit Board Assembly) and EMSs (Electronics Manufacturing Services) experts and insiders to meet and exchange ideas.

The event, due on 18th and 19th May 2022 at Fiera di Vicenza, aims to bring together all PCB stakeholders, from designers down to end-users.
Under the patronage of Assodel and ANIE Componenti Elettronici, organised by NürnbergMesse and hosted by IEG – Italian Exhibition Group, FocusOnPCB aims to involve Italian and European PCB players, offering them a valuable learning opportunity in terms of leading-edge technologies, innovative applications, emerging trends, as well as technical and professional updates on regulations and standards.

The companies taking part in the event will provide an overview of the Italian and European firms that design, produce, assemble and test printed circuit boards and electronic cards. Visitors will have the chance to hone their skills and expand their know-how by attending the fair’s first-rate workshops and seminars.
One of the “hot topics” in the spotlight at FocusOnPCB is sustainability along the entire PCB supply chain. A theme that today requires manufacturers, designers and distributors to rise up to the challenge of PCB sustainability both from an environmental (by adopting sustainable materials and processes) and economic perspective (by tackling production waste and energy saving).

Several leading PCB/PCBA industries have already joined FocusOnPCB.

Cistelaier S.p.A. has been producing printed circuit boards since 1976, and has always invested in people, technologies and processes, thus invariably meeting, often even anticipating, the needs of their clientele. The Modena-based firm’s decision to take part in Focus on PCB is a strategic one: “We believe that Italian and European PCB users need a partner like Cistelaier, a firm that can support them in the development of each new electronic device of which, in fact, the printed circuit board is the enabling platform.” So Claudio Guerzoni, Cistelaier’s executive. “Our participation in FocusOnPCB aims to keep on catering to the needs of the market, so as to offer our already-existing solutions, as well as making informed investment decisions to develop the solutions that will be needed in the future”.

FAE Technology S.p.A., specializing in embedded electronics for industries and the Internet of Things, has been supplying EEMS (Electronics Engineering and Manufacturing Services) for 30 years. Gianmarco Lanza – President and CEO of FAE Technology – is enthusiastic about the launch of a B2B event such as FocusOnPCB, which can boast European scope, and is a crucial opportunity for all the professionals in the sector. “We support an initiative that brings back the focus on electronics in our territory, being the latter paramount for the growth of several markets. The electronics industry has always been a key player in the industrial history of our country. Gathering the sector’s excellence and an audience of high-level professionals at a trade fair in presence, after a protracted standstill, is a strong signal of the vitality of a sector that has much to say.”

The Peters Group is the worldwide leading supplier of across-the-board coatings for electronics. Sustainability is one of the company’s current drives, as Stefano Falletti, Technical Sales Manager of Peters Italia S.r.l., has stated. “The printed circuit board industry is experiencing an extremely exciting season, and this exhibition is a unique opportunity for networking and dialoguing with our customers, following a period in which interaction has been forestalled by the pandemic. At FocusOnPCB we will display a new Irgacure-free green solder mask, in which the traditional photo-initiator for assembly and fitting of components has been replaced by a material with reduced footprint, in compliance with the non-toxicity requirements imposed by the latest European regulations”.

FocusOnPCB, with its compact formula of targeted and effective full-immersion sessions, will be held on 18th and 19th May 2022 in Hall 1 of Vicenza Exhibition Centre. The show is an absolute début in the European B2B exhibition scene, bringing together PCB manufacturers and distributors, subcontractors, EMS, PCB material suppliers, service companies, suppliers of design-related services and tools, PCB and PCBA certification bodies and companies, as well as analysis and testing laboratories.
