Xmark Media the organisers of Photonex, the UK's showcase photonics event dedicated to applied optical equipment, biophotonics, fibre optics, lasers, sensing, vision & LIGHT announces the 2013 event. This will be held on the 16 & 17th October at the visitor-friendly Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Photonics finds ever more uses in research, industry and the consumer environment. Photonics technologies are of increasing importance to scientific research and for industry. Its use is growing by the day as is the Photonex 2013 conference and exhibition.
Photonex organisers, Xmark Media, report that there will be a larger exhibit this year featuring an increasingly diverse range of products & services which will ensure the event continues to attract visitors from around the world. Laurence Devereux comments "We have sold 70% of our available space in record quick time. There really are so many new products available in this expanding market, companies need to present them face to face to prospective end-users."
A list of exhibitors and their offerings is available on the website. This includes details of new exhibitors such as Acal BFi, a well-known distributor of optical components, galvanometers & lasers; Armstrong Optical offer solutions for non-contact measurement whether this is shape, thickness, vibration, temperature, BFL, MTF in laboratory or production environments; Artemis Optical presents their skills in the field of high precision optical thin film coatings; Manx Precision Optics, a new manufacturer on the Isle of Man, introduces their high precision laser optics.
Vision UK is the new name for the focus on vision/imaging/laser technology for research, science, industry and factory automation. With the switch of the Vision show in Stuttgart to a biennial event, Photonex becomes the key 2013 event for vision and imaging technologies. It is supported by UKIVA who is organising a two-day technical programme of seminars, tutorials and application discussions.
Co-located with Photonex is Vacuum Expo, an event dedicated to vacuum technologies. There is significant technology overlap such as when photonics is applied for surface analysis or when fibre optics are used for securing access to the vacuum environment. Motion control and manipulation is also featured for the vacuum environment.
