Final report - Grand Gathering with Professional Buyers

LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2012 successfully closed on March 22 2012 at Shanghai New International Expo Center, China. The figures confirm its leading position in the Asian laser and photonics market: 475 exhibitors from 19 countries and districts exhibited at the trade show, an increase of 31.6 percent compared with 2011. The number of professional visitors again exceeded expectation and reached 34,326, a 19 percent growth over last year. PHOTONICS CONGRESS CHINA and other accompanying conferences focusing on industry information and scientific research were well accredited by the audiences.

Leading Companies at Growing Laser and Photonics Platform

Divided into several exhibit segments such as Laser Systems for Production Engineering, Laser and Optronics, Imaging and Optical Metrology, Optics and Optical Manufacturing – the trade show made a big step forward to cover the entire spectrum of the laser and photonics industry on a total exhibition area of 23,000 square meters, increasing by 33 percent. Leading companies from all aspects of the industry, along with national pavilions from Germany, France and Japan, offered visitors the latest cutting-edge products, technologies and industrial applications. Active talks and contented smiles were everywhere during the three-day show. Exhibitors spoke highly of the “best LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA ever”.

Chengying Qin, Marketing Director of HuaGong Laser expressed,” LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA is a leading event in laser and photonics industry. A lot of top exhibitors gather here and exhibit products covering all areas of the industry.”

Over 160 exhibitors joined in LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA for the first time this year and reaped excellent results. Morever, a special “Laser Systems for Production Engineering” area where more and more laser system equipment has been displayed is organized at the trade show. It targets at all the laser processing innovations in different areas, the exhibited products including laser cutting, laser marking, laser drilling, laser welding, laser heat processing, laser precision processing, parts precision processing, laser surface processing, laser rapid prototyping, laser carving and others. Lu Chen, Marketing Manager of WUHAN HE said,” It’s our first time to exhibit at LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA. We feel very good at the show where we can meet many peers and competitors. The visitors are very professional with great purchase intention.”

A Grand Gathering of End Users Seeking for Innovative Applications

Apart from professional companies from laser and photonics industries, the trade show also attracted end users from microelectronics, automotive, photovoltaic, material processing, shipping and aerospace, new energy, education and research, and display industries. The trade show also attracted visitors from electronica China 2012, productronica China 2012 and Semicon China 2012, which took place concurrently. Guenther Weinmann, General Manager Laser Technology of TRUMPF commented , “TRUMPF met many new customers in different industries such as automotive, solar, shipping, metal processing, and consumer electronics, most of which are from China, and we also met customers from Korea, Japan and Singapore.” There are also visitors coming from other countries like US, Israel, Hongkong, Macao, and Russia, as is pointed out by many exhibitors.

Cooperated by China Society of Image and Graphics (CSIG), German Industry & Commerce German China Shanghai (AHK) and Messe München International (MMI), Machine Vision Exhibition Pavilion attracted around 100 exhibitors participating this year, which received many great comments onsite. Jeffrey A.Burnstein, President of advancing VISION +IMAGING (AIA) rated highly of the show, “You can see people from semiconductors, solar energy and other industries, which provides great opportunity for machine vision to going forward.” KEITH A REUBEN, President of Aisa Pacific, TELEDYNE DALSA said,”We have a very good impression of the show this year. A lot of people coming are really true customers, not people just looking.“ “The visitor number at our booth is much higher than last year and our visitors are from all over the world.” expressed by Jianguo He, President of China Daheng Group.

Conferences under One Umbrella for the First Time: PHOTONICS CONGRESS CHINA

PHOTONICS CONGRESS CHINA was held for the first time during LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2012 and consists of four conferences that cover major topics of the  optics and photonics industry. It welcomed 1,266 audiences and featured presentations given by experts and researchers from a host of countries.

At 7th International Conference on Laser Processes and Components (LPC 2012), Prof. Youliang Wang, Chinese Optical Society Laser Processing Committee, Prof. Andreas Ostendorf, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany, and Prof. Minlin Zhong, Tsinghua University, Laser Institute of America offered their insights: they presented status and development trends of laser processes, laser processing application, laser macro processing, laser precision machining and micro processing. A total of 306 audiences crowed the meeting hall during the two days. Prof. Wang Youliang spoke highly of the quality and standard of the conference, “The conference is much better than expectation. The attendee number is the highest ever since. Both its overall organization and the presentation have greatly improved this year. The attendees are getting more and more professional.”

At “Optics Frontier – The 7th Conference on Laser Technology and Optoelectronics” and “Release of 2011 China Optics Outstanding Achievements and Products” Advances of today’s laser technology were discussed and senior representatives from leading laser companies presented their latest products.

OIDA Optical Fiber Communications Workshop and OSA Energy Photonics Workshop were held for the first time this year. OSA Energy Photonics Workshop invited optical and energy experts to talk about the research and application development in new energy, photovoltaic parts as well as the world and local markets.. OIDA Optical Fiber Communications Workshop centered on optical fiber communications networks, key components and markets. Experts from America, Germany and China gave speeches and hosted panel discussions.

Along with the trade show, China (Shanghai) International Machine Vision Technology & Application Conference, Advanced Training Class of Fiber Laser and Training Class on Writing Research Papers for International Research Journals and Conferences won the applause of audiences through the well-chosen topics.

The next LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2013 will be held at Shanghai New International Expo Center on March 19 -21, 2013.
