Over the past few years, the Mexico Manufacturing Industry has evolved from a more labor-intensive set of assembly processes to a more sophisticated set of information-technology-based processes (known as advanced manufacturing processes) at least in a few key sectors such as automotive, electronics, medical and aerospace. The advanced manufacturing in Mexico, particularly in Baja California is still in its early stage but definitely there is an increase in automated and data-intensive manufacturing processes that are replacing the traditional processes used so far in production plants located in Baja California.
The advanced manufacturing in Baja California is composed of efficient, productive, highly integrated, tightly controlled processes across a large number of manufacturers and suppliers with different technical skills from a wide spectrums of areas such as: Mechanical &Metals, Innovative Materials, Robotics, Tooling, Plastics, New Processes/ Factory of the Future; Recovery/ Recycling, Services, Electronics and electrical; Engineering and Design Centers; Nanomaterial and Nanotechnology; New Factories/ New Buildings, Surface Treatments. In fact all these areas are to discuss at the Advanced Manufacturing Meetings Baja California.
The first advanced manufacturing forum in Baja California will take place in Tijuana, September 28-30, 2015, at the Baja California Convention Center.
The event consists on pre arranged meeting for the supply chain, procurement, suppliers and contract manufacturers that will attend the event, and not to mention Conference and Workshops given by industry professionals with scientific, industrial, technical and sale backgrounds.
The main industrial sectors participants at the event are automotive, medical, aerospace and applied electronics, represented by 300 corporations OEM’s and Tier 1 suppliers from 15 countries.
Participants at the event might take into considerations the business opportunities in important areas that the Baja California industry is offering: High precision machining , Heat treatment , Anodizing, Castings and forges , Harnesses manufacturing , R&D , Structure design , Metal structure manufacture , Aluminum extrusion , Sheet metal, among others.
