China Society of Image and Graphics (CSIG) and Messe Muenchen
International (MMI) will again jointly organize a machine vision
pavilion within LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA, which will be held from
March 20-22, 2012. Ms. Wei Sui
is Director of
Machine Vision committee of the CSIG.1. Last year LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA already organized a
machine vision pavilion together with the CSIG (China Society of Image and
Graphics). Is it true that the cooperation is to be extended this year?
The cooperation between CSIG and MMI started in 2011. Both of us wanted
to establish a high standard and international platform for the machine vision
industry in Shanghai. Within
only two years we’ve seen a rapid increase for Vision China in Shanghai.
an association representing the industry and MMI is a well-known trade fair
organizer with an excellent global network. It’s an ideal combination. We hope
to continue and deepen the cooperation with MMI and turn the show into the
biggest one in Asia.
2. Which key players can we expect to see at this pavilion?Ms.
We have around 100 machine vision exhibitors joining us this year,
displaying their latest products and solutions. They include China
Daheng Group, LUSTER LightVision, Microview, The Imaging Source, VS
Technology, Baumer, FRAMOS, Teledyne Dalsa, JM Vistec System,
Schneider, Stemmer Imaging, Daitron, etc.
3. The “China (Shanghai) Machine Vision Technology
& Application Conference” will take place parallel to the
trade fair. What main topics have been planned here?Ms.
There are two main topics for the conference. One is the latest machine
vision technology, the other is the application of machine vision
technology in various industries. We already have over 500 participants
registered to attend the conference and we believe we will have another
success this year.
4. Where is the machine vision market heading in China? What are the trends? Ms.
In 2010, sales of
machine vision products in China’s
electronics industry reached RMB (Renminbi)
370 million. That’s a 60.9% increase compared to 2009.
Over the next 3 years, the semiconductor market in China will
have a stable increase of around 10%; the market volume for the LED industry
will double from 2009 to 2014 due to government support.
The PV industry will continue
to grow in China. The
sales volume for Chinese PV production machines will reach RMB (Renminbi) 15 billion in 2015.
5. Which areas post a particularly strong growth? Ms.
The machine vision
industry will continue to grow in the years to come mainly in the following
- The Chinese SMT industry is expected to reach RMB (Renminbi) 15 billion in 2015.
- The new energy vehicle industry is growing, as is
demand for production machines.
- Demand from the automation industry and motion
control industry is continuing to rise.
Thank you for the interview.
