I-Connect007 has invited local college students to participate in the company’s photographic coverage of IPC APEX EXPO 2018 in San Diego, California.

Students will be given a brief overview of trade show photography tips before being sent onto the show floor in I-Connect007 shirts. At the end of the event, the students’ photos will be reviewed and selected for publication in I-Connect007’s magazines, newsletters, and websites. Each participant will be awarded prize money based on their top submitted photos.

This partnership between I-Connect007 and local colleges will provide the students with a great opportunity to hone their photographic skills and connect the experience to their classroom studies. Trade shows can be a challenging environment to capture unique, quality photos due to numerous factors, such as lighting variations between booths and a large show floor to cover.

“Inviting students to photograph the IPC APEX EXPO 2018 will allow them to gain experience and add content to their personal portfolios. Plus, it allows I-Connect007 to involve young, local talent in our trade show coverage and showcase their work,” says Barry Matties, I-Connect007 publisher.

IPC APEX EXPO is North America’s largest electronics interconnect industry trade show that attracts industry leaders from around the world to network and demonstrate new equipment and technology. This trade show focuses on the printed circuit board and electronics manufacturing industry.

IPC APEX EXPO 2018 will be held at the San Diego Convention Center from February 24 to March 1. If you plan on attending the show, visit I-Connect007 at Booth #2645 and look for our student photographers on the show floor.

One of the major challenges for an electronics assembly manufacturing engineer is determining how an SMT machine will impact throughput. Typically, an SMT equipment supplier will ask for a few products to simulate the throughput capability of their machine. Unfortunately, if the engineer works in a high-mix, low-volume environment, he may need to know the impact of a new machine on 1,000 or more products.
