Preview: LASYS Continues on the Path of Growth

At Lasys 2018 – the International Trade Fair for Laser Material Processing – Messe Stuttgart expects a larger number of exhibitors and visitors as well as a further strengthening of its position as an indispensable industry meeting place for manufacturers, users, and decision-makers in industrial manufacturing. So said Florian Niethammer, team director of industrial solutions at Messe Stuttgart at the trade press conference at the Reichle Technology Center in Bissingen / Teck. Together with renowned experts, Christian Jung, managing director from GF Machining Solutions, a supplier of texturing machines, and Marco Reichle, company representative and divisional head of Reichle Technologiezentrum that is making use of a wide range of laser technologies, he previewed the trade fair.

“With a clear focus on laser production systems, Lasys is accom­panied by laser-specific machine sub­systems, laser sources, processes and services. Once again, the trade fair will demon­strate its role as the leading inter­national trade fair for the use of lasers in indus­trial manufac­turing,” said Niet­hammer. Lasys is the special platform for special applic­ation fields, new applic­ations, indus­trial trends and inno­vations across all industries and materials. Smart system solutions, established and new manufac­turing processes and applic­ations all have one thing in common: their high focus on practical orien­tation. “That is precisely what industry decision-makers are looking for and in turn, this attracts numerous exhibi­tions from Germany and abroad.”

Increase in international significance

All in all, there are good prospects for an increase in the number of inter­national exhi­bitors, indus­trial associ­ations and insti­tutes attending the sixth event of Lasys. Messe Stuttgart expects about two hundred exhibitors with one in three companies coming from abroad. “We have observed that Lasys has also gained in significance on the inter­national scene,” said Niet­hammer and expects over 6,000 visitors from several countries.

The program includes exciting events aimed at a variety of different target groups. While the “Lasers in Action” technical forum contains three days of practice-oriented lectures in the exhi­bition hall, the Stuttgart Laser Days on 5 and 6 June aim at a transfer of knowledge between inter­national experts and users. At the Stuttgart Laser Marketplace on 6 June, leading experts from market research and industry will lecture on markets, technol­ogies and applications in industrial laser tech­nology. On 5 June, there will be a workshop on the topic of “Laser material processing in medical tech­nology”. On 6 June, the “Laser build-up welding” workshop will take place. In addition, on 7 June, there will be a networking meeting for “Women in Photonics” held by PhotonicsBW and the “EPIC meeting on lasers and material processing at Lasys” conducted by the European Photonics Industry Consortium.

Events taking place concurrently provide a view beyond the boundaries of the laser industry. They include Cast-Forge, the International Trade Fair for Surface Treatments and Coating, the Auto­motive Testing Expo, the Auto­motive Interiors Expo, the Auton­omous Vehicle Technology World Expo, the Engine Expo and the Global Auto­motive Components and Suppliers Expo. (Source: Messe Stuttgart)
