LASER World of Photonics India 2015 draws largest attendance yet

Sept. 28, 2015
LASER World of Photonics India 2015 welcomed 145 exhibitors and 6066 visitors—the highest number to date.

New Delhi, India - LASER World of Photonics India 2015, held September 9-11, welcomed 145 exhibitors and 6066 visitors—nearly double the amount of visitors from the 2013 show, and the highest number to date. At the 2015 show, visitors got the opportunity to witness the latest in lasers, precision optics, and photonics for the industrial laser industry, among others.

Show attendees discussed how laser and optics technology can boost the technological development of the Indian industry and support the Make in India initiative by the Indian government in various sectors. And for the first time, the new Machine Vision Pavilion gave an insight into industrial image processing and how it can help to optimize production processes, improve quality, and make production monitoring more efficient.

Some of the most important research institutes for laser and photonics technology in India—the Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute (CGCRI), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy & New Materials (ARCI), and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)—gathered for the first time at a specific Research Pavilion and initiated an exchange between researchers and industry representatives about the existent and required fields of research in India, as well as the transfer process of scientific findings into application-oriented developments.

The show also witnessed accompanying programs held concurrently, which gave further insights into laser solutions for the diverse user industries. At the International Conference on Application of Lasers in Manufacturing 2015 (CALM 2015) organized by ARCI, more than 120 delegates informed themselves and exchanged views about all aspects of laser processing of materials and new technology developments in micromachining, cladding, hardening, welding, cutting, drilling, and repair and refurbishment.

LASER World of Photonics India 2016 will take place September 21-23, 2016, in Bangalore. For more information, please visit
