MTA 2017: Spotlight on new technologies
Riding on a wave of renaissance in the industry, MTA 2017 - Asia's premier manufacturing technology industry event returning from 4 to 7 April at the Singapore Expo, will kick off a host of new features.
MTA will spotlight new technologies with specialised zones. Among the new features will be the Optics & Photonics Innovation Hub, The Semiconductor Innovation Centre, and a 3D Printing Seminar. In collaboration with the Optics and Photonics Society of Singapore (OPSS), LUX Photonics Consortium and The Photonics Institute, the Optics and Photonics Innovation Hub is dedicated to showcasing products and services in the field of optics and photonics. This specialised zone will bring together industry and academic leaders, manufacturers and suppliers to showcase the latest research and innovative products.
Semiconductor Innovation Centre
According to the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS), the worldwide semiconductor market is expected to increase 2 per cent in 2017 and 2.2 per cent in 2018. At MTA 2017's Semiconductor Innovation Centre, visitors can get up close and personal with advanced semiconductor manufacturing technologies and solutions made for the evolving global electronics market, and learn how harnessing these technologies and solutions will enable the industry to compete in the global market.
3D Printing @ MTA
Advances in additive manufacturing, or 3D printing as it is commonly known, have seen the application of more and more materials to the process and the creation of innovative solutions for the manufacturing industry. Besides a 3D Printing Technology Tour, a new 3D Printing Seminar will be held to impart technological updates, opportunities, issues and challenges impacting the industry.
