Power Fortronic returns from the 27th to the 28th of June, 2018 in Modena. Once again, Emilia Romagna, a region of great excellences and with one of the most innovative manufacturing industry, confirms to be a privileged place to bring together all the latest technologies, products and systems in the power sector (and not only) with focus on some cutting-edge fields, including automotive, mechatronics, industry and biomedical.
Promoted by Assodel – Italian Federation of Electronics Clusters – and by the Elint Consortium, the event promises to be even larger and with a richer program.
Engineers, designers, EMS, buyers, managers and technicians will have the opportunity to get in touch with the sector’s top players. In addition, visitors will have access to conferences, workshops and demo areas offered by companies, to get a 360° view of the entire supply chain.
In 2017 the power electronics market in Italy grew by 14% reaching a value of 120 million euros for the semiconductor power components segment (Assodel data). The "power" therefore shows a better performance of the market in its entirety and 2018 will surely be another positive year.
Among the most interesting sectors, the E-Mobility and Electric Vehicles area will provide exclusive contents. In 2017 the number of electric cars registered in Italy reached 2000, with a growth of 38%, while hybrid vehicles grew by 71% and according to the "eMobility Revolution report”, 3 million electrified vehicles will circulate in Italy by 2025.
The Fortronic Power will open on the 27th of June with the second edition of the Strategic Innovation Summit, a meeting point dedicated to top management with analysis, market visions and successful case histories. At the end of the Summit the annual Assodel Gala dinner will be held.
The networking event gathers more than 300 international managers every year. Among the novelties of the 2018 edition the Assodel Awards will be assigned not only to the Best Manufacturers of the electronics industry but also to the most innovative Italian customers.
The second day will be completely dedicated to products, solutions, latest technologies and training. Next to the exhibition area the usual technological conference session, which represents the heart of Fortronic Power, will offer sessions with a high technological content held by the most innovative companies in the field of power electronics and not only.
Among the outstanding topics, particular emphasis will be given to three thematic routes: Power Management, Inverter & Driver and Energy Storage, not to mention important topics such as IGBT, SJ-Mosfet and power modules, wireless charging, medical and diagnostic, thermal management, EV / HEV and so on.
Marco La Ciacera, Country Manager of ROHM Semiconductor comments on the announcement: "The Italian electronics market is an extremely fragmented market characterised by the presence of many companies offering a very wide range of products. To emerge within this it is necessary to implement a sales channel strategy capable to gather the different needs, using all the related activities. In this context, the Fortronic Power is an opportunity for visitors to aggregate and develop ideas on the topic of power electronics. For ROHM it is a privileged moment to show the progress achieved in the field of technology and products."
Aldo Bonzi, Arrow Electronics Specialist FAE Manager Italy argues that "Fortronic Power is the most important event in Italy dedicated to power electronics. It is an opportunity to learn about applications, contents, solutions on various technologies and suppliers that present the state of the art of their products. Customers will have a great overview of all this and the opportunity to discuss common interests and objectives."
The event, which is experiencing a continuous growth trend and an ever-increasing interest from the top players in the market, will give space, alongside power electronics solutions, to more general products, systems and components, such as microcontrollers, instrumentation, IP&E, display... creating a networking event for the entire Italian industrial electronics supply chain.
