The 2012 Exhibition Micromachine/MEMS and ROBOTECH fair ended successfully
Exhibition Micromachine/MEMS and ROBOTECH concluded successfully on 13 July 2012 with high exhibitor satisfaction and increased visitor number.
The world’s largest exhibition focusing on Micro/MEMS and Nanotechnologies, and the exhibition on service robot manufacturing technologies were held under the name of “Micronano 2012”, an integrated event in which various conferences and workshops took place. There were 206 exhibitors from 10 countries/regions this year, as well as 10,985 visitors from around the world.Exhibitors showcased the industries’ latest technologies and products and various programmes were run focusing on the theme “Open Innovation”. The theme aimed to drive exchange between the industry’s key players and build deeper cooperation between academia and industry. Quality and quantity of visitors to the show were high, leading to strong endorsement from exhibitors that Micronano is an influential aspect to Japan’s machinery and robotics industries. Regular exhibitor Naoki Tashiro from SIJ Technology, Inc. commented: “We invented the world’s smallest inkjet with high viscosity for use in various applications. We continue exhibiting at this fair because we want to increase our brand’s recognition. Our target visitors are R&D labs and organisations that have the technology to mass produce inkjets, and many of these firms came to our booth this year. We’ve seen many benefits to taking part in the hope to come back again next year.”
Noriaki Nakagawa from RT Corp., who exhibited at ROBOTECH remarked: “We took part at this fair to promote our products and to find partnerships for technological development. We were busy with visitors and also gained a lot of media attention. The fair attracted a number of industry-targeted visitors which made us realise the importance of quality over quantity. We also discovered the importance of communicating and working with other exhibitors. I believe the fair is integral to technological development in our industry.”
