IPC Secures Governors’ Proclamations for Manufacturing Day 2017


Reading time ( words)

Friday, October 6, marks the annual celebration of Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) across the United States. Manufacturers are joining in a collaborative effort to highlight current innovations and inspire the next generation of manufacturing professionals.

IPC, an official endorser of MFG Day, took the initiative of reaching out to several state governors to request proclamations on the importance of this annual celebration. We are pleased to applaud Governors Greg Abbot (R-TX), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Bruce Rauner (R-IL), and Tom Wolf (R-PA) for recognizing the contributions of the advanced manufacturing industry in their communities and across the country.

Meanwhile, several IPC member companies have joined the growing list of more than 900 events occurring on or around MFG Day 2017. IPC member companies include:

STI Electronics will host local school groups, including a group of women engineers, to tour their manufacturing facility in Madison, Alabama.

Bay Area Circuits will give a presentation to invited guests on the importance of PCB manufacturing, and will conduct a tour of its facility in Fremont, California.

K-TECHnologies will provide tours for 85 Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) students from 46 different high schools in the Wester New York region.

Power Design Services will conduct a tour of their 10,000-square-foot facility in San Jose, where attendees will be able to see the PCB assembly process. The event will include a career fair and a brief presentation on assembly technology and flow.

If you have any questions about participating in Manufacturing Day or have an event planned, please contact Julie Desisto, IPC Government Relations Coordinator, at JulieDesisto@ipc.org or 202-661-8093.

The distance between imagination and reality has reduced considerably. Thanks to advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), data processing, and machine vision, the science fiction writers' vision of smarter robots is becoming a reality. These more intelligent machines are also making a big impact in manufacturing.

Electronic Components Market Update

Unfortunately, there is still no end in sight to the electronic component shortage, and some lead-times are being quoted with 2019 and even 2020 delivery dates! So if you are working with an EMS provider, it remains vital that you communicate and share forecast information with them. You may also want to start looking at the option of fitting, or designing in, smaller components to your PCB assemblies.
