Hello everyone,

Welcome to this week's WNIE newsletter.
 
They say neccessity is the mother of invention, and while the Covid 19 crisis has hit manufacturing hard, we've witnessed a raft of new innovations and technologies being introduced to try to combat some of the effects.
 
As well as demand, supply, and workforce availability being affected globally simultaneously, social distancing and employee safety measures have put an additional level of pressure on manufacturers, and forced them to adapt and evolve to a new normal.
 
This week we've seen announcements from Omron, who are supporting the safe re-opening of spaces after lockdown with a wide range of optical sensors
 
These components can form a vital part of an effective infection control regime within buildings, rooms and even crowd-controlled spaces by monitoring body temperature measurement, counting the density of people in an area and reducing the need to touch surfaces.
 
Interconics, specialists in high quality technology solutions for both PCB manufacture and SMT assembly, has turned to Altus, a leading distributor of capital equipment in the UK and Ireland, to help in recommending specialist equipment to improve staff and visitor safety and keep the facility Covid-safe.
 
These are just a couple of the new innovations we have heard of recently, but needless to say, the entire industry has stepped up to and exceeded the mark when it comes to overcoming issues caused by the pandemic.  We look forward to seeing how other processes, such as increased automaton, supply chain widening, and greater connectivity will come into play to mitigate any further global disruptions, and indeed whether these processes will continue as a long term trends, in a post pandemic world.
 
 Don't forget that SMTAI takes place next week and we are hosting our own virtual booth at this year's event. You can register to attend here. 
 
 
Have a great week,
