As the Smart replacement for the long-successful IPC-SMEMA standard, the IPC-HERMES standard directly addresses business-critical line automation needs, whilst retaining the freedom to select the ideal equipment from any chosen vendor. Hermes provides machine-to-machine (M2M) communication that allows machines to consistently transfer a physical PCB together with the PCB’s related Digital Twin. With an emphasis on flexibility to produce any quantity, of any product, at any time, Hermes features fully automated changeover and flow-control in adaptive multi / mixed production lines, without the need for specialist hardware or systems at each machine.

What does supply chain resiliency really mean? What can you do in your business, regardless of size, to react and adapt to supply chain disruptions? Join us for an interactive discussion with Suzanne Richer of the Global Trade Academy as she helps us define what supply chain resiliency means, including understanding whether an impact can be delayed and if not, how quick a company can recover. Explore how to better gain control of your supply chain, in a climate that seems to have taken control out of our hands. Suzanne will share unique approaches to and lessons learned about data management, supplier cooperation, and the future of talent. Additionally, she will share how procurement is changing and will impact the electronics industry.

IPC APEX EXPO 2021 is the place to be – wherever you are.
Given continued restrictions in the state of California for large gatherings and events, the rise in COVID-19 infection rates and restricted company travel policies, IPC’s executive leadership and Board of Directors made the decision to cancel the APEX EXPO as an in-person event and move to a virtual event.

Although the setting will be unique, we are committed to providing you with the cutting-edge content you have come to expect from APEX EXPO. The event’s digital platform will allow you to easily navigate more than 100 technical conference sessions and application-focused professional development courses as well as view product demonstrations, schedule one-on-one meetings with exhibitors and experience other offerings within the online exhibition.
