Our special shows allow you to experience electronics production in the truest sense of the word: Live!
Special show “cleanzone”
High-tech products place high demands on manufacturing conditions, and the cleanroom plays a key role in that process. The “cleanzone” shows how people are keeping things clean there.
Wherever a particle is considered dirt, cleanrooms can't be far away. For quite some time now, they have been keeping the smallest particles in the air at process-critical locations from causing considerable damage. However, in the meantime components have shrunk to structure sizes so small that even molecular contamination is dangerous. The semiconductor industry in particular has been struggling increasingly with this problem. For example, outgassing of plastics can cause considerable contamination on the product surface and have a negative influence on product quality.
Besides cleanroom technology in general, the mycleanroom.de agency will devote part of the special show to the sectors for AMC (airborne molecular contamination) and EUVL (extreme UV lithography). Nearly all customers in microtechnology deal with topics such as filtration and metrology.
A training module known as the intelligent lock is a new attraction at the fair. A modular cleanroom from mfk will be equipped with cleanroom furniture. Virtual reality makes it possible for visitors to enter the cleanroom. Interactive instructions tell them how to put on clothing in the right order and how to wash and disinfect their hands correctly. The imaginary “door” to the cleanroom only opens for those who observe all the guidelines.
Among other things, there will also be presentations and interactive live sessions on the following topics:
- Building cleanrooms
- Cleaning agents for cleanrooms
- Air-conditioning technology
- Cleanroom monitoring
- Appropriate cleanroom supplies
- Contamination control zones

Special show “IPC Hand Soldering Competition”
Once again IPC will be holding the European regional hand soldering competition at productronica 2017, from November 14–16, 2017. As an added feature the IPC HSC World Championship will be held on Friday morning, November 17. Along with the regional European productronica winner, representatives from Russia, Poland, United Kingdom, France, Hungary, Germany and Asia will be competing for the World Championship. The regional competition will challenge the industry professionals to complete a functional assembly within 60 minutes, meeting IPC-A-610F Class 3 criteria. The speed and functionality of the assembly will be judged by IPC-A-610 Master Instructors.
Cash prizes will be presented to the winner and two runners-up for the regional European competition. The winner will then compete on Friday, November 17 for the IPC HSC World Championship.
Location: Hall A1, Stand 307
