Exhibitors from the entire spectrum of photonics enter the Age of “Smart Manufacturing”
Leading manufacturers and distributors showcased the latest advances for smart manufacturing, which combines the laser, automation and machine vision technologies that are widely applied in the automobile, semiconductor, material, aerospace, rail transport, home appliance and other industries. Modern smart manufacturing technologies also provide increased performance, efficiency, precision and cost-effectiveness. The combination of multiple technologies based on light as a source gives “Intelligent Light” a new, unprecedented power to break through the bottleneck in traditional manufacturing industries.

The world laser market is estimated to be worth 615 billion dollars by 2020. LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA showcases the huge potential of the market.  Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München.
