Robotics are one major theme at the Laser World of Photonics China.

As one of the leading laser and photonics event in Asia, Laser World of Photonics China 2018 will occupy an area of 51,750 square meters with more than 1,000 exhibitors and 9 national pavilions from around the world, the organizer announces. More than 55,000 trade visitors will meet in March in Shanghai. The exhibition will feature world leading laser and optoelectronic technology, as well as the latest and most advanced products. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the most popular topics and challenges in the industry and research fields.

As the development of laser technology and robotics pushes China's manufacturing industry into the high-value end in the global industry chain, the vigorous development of the machine vision industry has brought another driving force into “intelligent manufacturing”. In particular, the “marriage” of machine vision and robot technology has produced unprecedented momentum in manufacturing industry, the organizer states. The Shanghai International Machine Vision Exhibition and the concurrent Conference of Machine Vision Technology and Industrial Applications (Vision China) will showcase the full range of core machine vision components and plug-ins, focusing on their applications in electronics manufacturing, semiconductors, security and monitoring, medical imaging, industrial inspection, robot and automation, automobile manufacturing, and printing and packaging applications. They will provide a basis for the future development of “intelligent industrial manufacturing”.

According to the organizer, China's manufacturing industry is at a crucial period in its transformation and advancement. Traditional production technology is in urgent need of upgrading and replacement. Exhibitors at Laser World of Photonics China will showcase equipment for ultra precision optical parts processing, precision measurement and servo systems, and ultra precision cutting.
