LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA 2016 returns with more exhibitors and new technologies
Bengaluru, September 2016: The 5th edition of LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA, the only trade fair for the laser and photonics industry returns to Bangalore from September 21 to 23, 2016 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC).
With around 140 exhibitors and 20 represented companies occupying 4,000 square metres of exhibition space, the trade fair will include key industry players such as Advanced Photonics, Dynotech Instruments, IPG Photonics, Jenoptik, Merck, OptoTech, Sahajanand Laser Technology, Scantech Laser, Star Laser, Laser Science, Schneider, TOPTICA Photonics and TRUMPF, to name but a few. Technology will also be showcased in various country pavilions, e.g. Germany, China, Japan, Singapore, Lithuania and the United Kingdom. The phenomenal response from exhibitors and the anticipated 7,000 visitors are further confirmation of the growing stature of the trade fair as a global platform for the use of industrial lasers and optics in India.
Thanks to positive schemes by the government and the introduction of national programs such as ‘Make in India’, the manufacturing sector in India is expected to grow enormously. High productivity and automation are a high priority with many industrial segments requiring precision and quick turnaround of processes. They can be accelerated by ultra-modern technologies, one of the most efficient being laser and optical technologies owing to their tremendous power, flexibility, speed and quality of execution.
Laser and optics applications can be found in almost every field including information technology, manufacturing, lighting, automotive, security, jewelry and medical sciences, to name but a few. The eagerly awaited trade fair—LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA 2016—will showcase the latest offerings in these applications as well as in tool making, machine vision, defense, aerospace, scientific research and many more besides. The three-day trade fair will provide manufacturers, distributors, government authorities and state corporations with opportunities to interact and network with exhibitors from across the industry.
To enable scientists, industry experts and users to exchange information and experiences, LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA 2016 will feature two conferences which will include a series of specific presentations and panel discussions to examine industry topics:
- The latest applications and developments relating to automotive related laser technologies and future opportunities to realize production with increased efficiency will be presented in the conference “Future of the Indian Automotive Industry: Laser and its Applications” on September 21, 2016, co-organized with ARCI International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy & New Materials
- The “Conference on Recent Advances in Lightwave Technology” (CRALT 2016) will focus on optical engineering, an emerging technology with far-reaching applications and implications. This new conference will feature half-day tutorials on emerging topics and will celebrate the centenary of OSA, The Optical Society, which is a tutorial sponsor. CRALT 2016 is being staged in cooperation with the IEEE Photonics Society Bangalore Chapter and Messe Muenchen India, and will be held from September 21 to 23, 2016.
There will be key features during the trade fair including the premiere of the Laser Safety Forum which will focus on various aspects of laser safety practice and hazard control. Laser safety experts will share their know-how and provide information on the practical applications of laser safety. The Machine Vision Pavilion is a special area that will attract visitors and focus on quality applications of lasers in the machine vision sector. Another interesting feature is the Laser Live Zone, a dedicated live demonstration area focusing on laser cutting machines and laser marking machines.
Bhupinder Singh, CEO of Messe München India says, “We are pleased to announce that the 5th LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA this year will be the largest ever edition of the trade fair in terms of exhibitors, technologies and exhibition space. In addition to technologies and building awareness in laser safety, visitors can also look forward to futuristic applications in process quality in the ‘Machine Vision Pavilion’. The trade fair will also offer a platform for the decision makers from the industry, buyers and sellers to share their knowledge and experiences relating to reliable, approved and innovative laser technologies.”
LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA 2016 will take place again in conjunction with electronica India and productronica India, the largest trade fairs presenting the entire value-added chain in the electronics industry.
