At the Laser World of PHOTONICS China, smart manufacturing was in focus.

According to the organizer, at LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2017, a trade show for the laser, optics and photonics industry, 929 exhibitors from 25 countries showcased their products and solutions.

“Smart Manufacturing”
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.

Laser and photonics exhibition in Asia
The combination of smart robots and advanced laser technology creates smart factories that bring new opportunities for automation. High-precision industrial robots make laser processing more flexible and have a promising future in high-end manufacturing. Leading robot manufacturers have proven the high capabilities and “smartness” of laser processing robots at LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2017. Moreover, the exhibition offers enormous market opportunities for the integration of laser and robots.

Cutting-edge technologies
The development of machine vision technology is also bringing new possibilities for “Modern Smart Manufacturing”, especially by the collaboration of machine vision and robots. Vision China, one of the biggest and most important and authoritative event for machine vision technology in China, was held by LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA together with China Society of Image and Graphics.

The PHOTONICS CONGRESS CHINA, held along with the exhibition, focused on the latest progress in wide-ranging areas in the industry, including laser processing, advanced lasers, optics, IR imaging, laser safety and beam analysis.
