Photonic Technologies 4 intelligent processing

This Conference organized by Swissphotonics, the Swiss National Thematic Network (NTN) for photonics, will take place in the framework of the Salon International EPHJ - EPMT - SMT, the most important annual exhibition for Swiss suppliers of watch industry and micro technology.

Multipurpose Laser machining with smart and new technical solutions together with real time monitoring for competitive fabrication  processes are the future trends in keeping competitiveness. Examples and potential solutions for the future will be presented and discussed.

The event will be of value to companies that are established in the sector or are looking to develop products there, as well photonics academics with an interest in industrial collaboration and commercialisation.
