NORTHFIELD, MINN. — Northfield Automation Systems recently announced that they will be presenting at SEMICON West 2010, which will be held July 13-15 in San Francisco, Calif. SEMICON West is the flagship annual event for the global microelectronics industry. It is the premier event for the display of new products and technologies for microelectronics design and manufacturing, featuring technologies from across the microelectronics supply chain. More than semiconductors, SEMICON West is also a showcase for emerging markets and technologies born from the microelectronics industry, including micro-electromechanical systems, photovoltaics, flexible electronics and displays, nano-electronics, solid state lighting (LEDs), and related technologies.
A special program at this year’s event, titled “Extreme Electronics,” is dedicated to the emerging markets listed above. Northfield Automation President and CEO Mark Wagner said, “As a leader in custom solutions for the manufacturing of thin-material applications, we felt a presence at SEMICON West would be a good fit. We are thrilled to be presenting our unique services to the global audience attending the event. Much of our expertise lies in processes for these emerging markets, so we are excited about the possibilities of new partnerships with companies who may be unaware of the ways in which we can help their businesses succeed.”
By connecting engineers, manufacturers and business executives, SEMICON aims to drive innovation and new technology, helping companies move ideas into production and distribution. And Northfield Automation sees itself as a key component in that equation. “We enable companies to manufacture their products more accurately and efficiently,” says Wagner. “With a streamlined manufacturing process, they can then deliver those products to their customers more quickly and cost effectively, which contributes to the advancement of the industry as a whole.”
