  • The EMS China exhibition presents suppliers of contract manufacturing, molds & metal stamped parts, die casting, tools, wires & cables, and precision engineering.
  • A brand new presentation, Component Manufacturing, is set to provide a complete solution of materials, precision tooling, and equipment required for all types of electronics component manufacturing (rubber/plastics/metals/wire).
  • Digital Factory is the latest segment added to the EMT China portfolio, which ensures a complete solution to all electronics manufacturing needs in China. This inaugural presentation will feature all the latest technology in design, manufacturing operations, and other manufacturing-related software.

  • The 2003 NEPCON Shanghai concluded with great applause. One of the notable highlights of the 2003 event was the SMT High-Level Conference that was organized by SMTA and the Electronics & Information Industry Sub-Council (CCPIT) of China. The SMTA is pleased to again be the co-organizer of the 2004 NEPCON Shanghai High-Level SMT Technology Conference.
