1st LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA to showcase multi-talented use of lasers & photonics in the Indian Industries in September 2012

India is emerging as a technology hub with its expertise in telecommunications, electronics, manufacturing, automotive and ancillary segments. Today many of the industrial verticals require precision and quick turnaround of their process. This process can be accelerated by modern technologies. One of the most efficient ones is the laser and photonics technology, owing to tremendous power, flexibility, speed and quality of execution. Commenting on the importance of lasers & photonics, Mr. Darryl Dasilva, CEO, MMI India, said: "The main objective of LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA is to develop and grow diverse industrial applications in India with the use of laser technology, boost the awareness for the laser and photonics technology, deliver important impetus for Indian research institutes and universities in photonics as well as interlink the research sector and industry for the development of the technology." The applications of photonics can be found in almost every field including information communication technologies, manufacturing, lighting, automotive, security, jewellery and medical sciences to just name a few. India has been progressively growing as global automation hub primarily on account of labour as well as easy availability of technology. Most global automakers that have major industrial production bases in India are aware of the advantages of the laser welding process in the automotive sector. This is mainly due to the high productivity and small amount of down-time compared to the other forms of welding systems. In the automotive industry, high power laser welding installations consist of cross flow CO2 lasers in the power range of 3 kW to 5 kW which leads to particle-free working, stress-free energy input, highest aesthetic quality and high flexibility. Unlike other welding techniques that require a vacuum, laser welding transmits a beam through the air. This process can be easily automated using robotic techniques. There is no radiation by the process and it provides higher quality welds. Laser world of photonics India 2012, which is a leading international trade show on Laser and Photonics Technology, will address the potential of laser and photonics applications and sectors in India. Laser world of photonics India 2012 will have 111 exhibitors from 13 countries: leading global and Indian companies showcasing the most advanced laser and photonics equipments available today. In conjunction with the trade fair, Messe Muenchen International will hold a seminar on laser basics and applications, which gives a quick overview of laser and photonics technology for potential users from different application fields. Target group of the seminar are novices to the laser world, companies and users from different application fields that have not yet dealt with laser technology before. Among the prominent companies who are taking part in the Seminar on Laser Basics and Applications on 14th September are Sahajanand Laser Technology, Sahajanand Technologies (P), Simco Global Technology & Systems, Laser Automation, New Age Instrument & Materials, CVI Melles Griot, Ametek - Precitech, IPG Photonics (India), TRUMPF (India), Marks Pryor, and more.
