Panasonic Solution & Innovation Center Vietnam opens

Panasonic Corporation has announced the opening of its “Panasonic Solution & Innovation Center Vietnam” at the Thang Long Industrial Park in Hanoi’s Dong Anh district.

The center will act as the corporation’s factory automation showroom for Southeast Asia and will showcase highly-efficient manufacturing technologies and equipment.

In today’s highly digitized world, it said, demand for smartphones, wearable devices and other electronics is expanding rapidly and built-in printed circuit boards are a necessity for such products.

The center will present Panasonic’s suite of manufacturing technologies, such as auto-insertion and surface mounting machines for electronic components in high-density printed circuit boards.

On an area of 480 sq m, the center features not only Panasonic’s latest chip mounter and welding machine but also peripheral equipment from its partners, which include component towers and inspection machines.

This synergy highlights the importance of network compatibility and technological interconnectedness and their contribution to the success of Industry 4.0 and IoT-supported manufacturing lines. The center will be operated and managed by the Panasonic Vietnam Factory Automation Group.

Customers at the center can experience the actual manufacturing process for printed circuit boards and welding machines by bringing their own materials and electronic components for trial production.

The center is also equipped with a seminar hall and conference rooms to facilitate technical seminars and events relating to factory automation. Through these approaches the center aims to maximize value for customers.

Panasonic has already opened showrooms in Chicago, Bangkok, Jakarta and Munich as the company expands its factory solutions business globally.

Panasonic Vietnam was the first 100 per cent foreign-invested company to have a country headquarters in Vietnam.

The Panasonic Vietnam Group comprises Panasonic Industrial Devices Vietnam (PIDVN), Panasonic System Networks Vietnam (PSNV), Panasonic Appliances Vietnam (PAPVN), Panasonic AVC Networks Vietnam (PAVCV), Panasonic Eco Solutions Vietnam (PESVN), and the Panasonic Research & Development Center Vietnam.

The Group currently employs about 7,500 people. In Vietnam it places great emphasis on social activities surrounding education and the environment.

The Panasonic Corporation is a worldwide leader in the development of diverse electronics technologies and solutions for customers in the consumer electronics, housing, automotive, enterprise solutions and device industries.

Since its founding in 1918 the company has expanded globally and now operates 474 subsidiaries and 94 associated companies worldwide, recording consolidated net sales of 7.553 trillion Japanese yen ($68.7 billion) for the year ended March 31, 2016.
