The only constant is change this is particularly true in electronics manufacturing. In an industry that is constantly evolving and changing, it is crucial to be open to change. Under the motto #opentochange, participants at the Technology Days 2024 on 11 and 12 September can expect current topics that are essential for success in modern industry and interesting ideas on the path to transformation.

Traditionally, inspiring presentations, interactive workshops and networking opportunities on the latest developments, trends and best practices in electronics manufacturing are at the centre of Rehm Thermal Systems’ Technology Days. This year, a total of ten specialist presentations by in-house and invited experts will explore the challenges and opportunities associated with automation, digitalisation and the use of AI in production. The keynote speakers will be Professor Dr Dennis-Kenji Kipker from the and Professor Dr Isabell Welpe from the Technical University of Munich, who will talk about cyber security in production and the transformation of the world of work. Numerous workshops and live demonstrations will combine theory with current practical applications.

Workshop 1: From raw material to fuel: insight into the fuel production line

For some years now, hydrogen has been seen as a beacon of hope for the energy and climate transition: In industry, hydrogen can be produced in conjunction with electrolyzers, stored temporarily and used again as required in fuel cell units. Thermal systems are used for drying processes in the production of individual components for fuel cells. Find out which drying processes are possible for the individual components of the fuel cell with solutions from Rehm Thermal Systems.

Workshop 2: Effective coating and dispensing lines: Balancing costs and quality

In order to guarantee their functionality, printed circuit boards that are, for example, used in vital technical end products in the automotive industry, aviation or medical technology must be protected from aggressive environmental influences such as moisture, corrosion or dust: Discover the diverse possibilities and areas of application of our portfolio in the areas of conformal coating and dispensing. Our systems have numerous features that simplify the coating and dispensing process and ensure quality.

Workshop 3: Innovative condensation soldering processes with and without vacuum

In condensation reflow soldering, soldering is accomplished using a hot vapor. Thanks to the high heat transfer, large or high-mass boards can be easily processed in a stable process environment. The inert heat transfer medium used is perfluoropolyether (Galden®). The main topics are condensation soldering with and without vacuum as well as application areas and possibilities for integration into the existing production environment.

Workshop 4: Sustainable electronics production: Energy efficiency and resource conservation in SMD production

The tense situation regarding the availability of resources such as electrical energy and nitrogen sets new goals and challenges for both plant technology and the process definition of soldering. In this workshop, we will provide an overview of the plant- and process-specific possibilities of the new generation of systems for reducing resource consumption.

The Technology Days 2024 will take place on Wednesday, 11 September and Thursday, 12 September 2024 at the headquarters of Rehm Thermal Systems in Blaubeuren. A special highlight on the programme is the evening event in the Oldtimerfabrik Classic, an event location with a distinctive character and special charm.
