Rehm to Appear at EPP InnovationsFORUM and ‘Wir gehen in die Tiefe’

Reading time ( words)

They’re back. The first face-to-face events for a long time are taking place again, including the EPP InnovationsFORUM in Leinfelden in July and the "Wir gehen in die Tiefe" seminar in Leipzig in September.

Rehm Thermal Systems will be attending and speaking at both events. At the EPP InnovationsFORUM, Michael Hanke, chief sales officer for Rehm, will discuss ProMetrics, a software tool for monitoring thermal profiles during soldering, while at "Wir gehen in die Tiefe," Gianfranco Sinistra, product sales director for dispensing and coating, will give a presentation about Rehm’s versatile conformal coating solutions. 

Thanks to the steadily falling Covid rate and an appropriate hygiene concept, the EPP InnovationsFORUM can now take place as a live, in-person event on July 7, 2021 at the Filderhalle in Leinfelden. The success in previous years has made this one of the most important industry events, where specialists can learn from one another, exchange experience and listen to talks by leading experts.

In 12 specialist talks, plus direct experience exchange with high-level specialists and other colleagues, the seminar provides a comprehensive overview of which technologies look set to hold the greatest prospects for success. The keynote speaker this year will be Joey Kelly, with a talk entitled "No Limits."

Hanke will give a talk on "Perfect profiling and monitoring." With ProMetrics, Rehm Thermal Systems has a software tool for monitoring thermal profiles during soldering. This checks how well the previously created profile corresponds to the required, predefined specifications. The process window index (PWI) ascertained in this way is a statistical measure that quantifies the quality of a thermal process.

Sinistra will speak on Wednesday, September 22 at 11:15 on "Dispensing and coating for the protection of electronic assemblies." Coating technology in the electronics industry continues to advance. The many materials and application methods are specifically tailored to the assembly being manufactured. It can be easy to lose sight of all the possibilities. In this talk, the speaker will explain how choosing and implementing appropriate procedures need not be unnecessarily complicated and how the perfect material application can be achieved in just a few steps.

Since the number of participants will nevertheless be restricted due to the ongoing coronavirus regulations, the presentations will also be offered in a streaming version. Interested persons can thus decide whether they wish to attend in person or listen to the sessions that interest them online.

Following the forced cancellation of the event in 2020, "Wir gehen in die Tiefe" will run from September 21-23, 2021 at the Penta Hotel, Leipzig. By using the partner code rehm21IFD, interested parties can participate in the EPP InnovationsFORUM free of charge. Registration for the event is online and is available at

Initiatives like the IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) and IPC-Hermes-9852 underpin efforts within the industry to develop standards and help create a smart factory. These M2M communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics such as first pass yield and throughput by applying autonomous process adjustments.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
