India is emerging as a technology hub with its expertise in telecommunications, electronics, manufacturing, automotive and ancillary segments. Today many of the industrial segments 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, 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.
Dr. Lalit Kumar, Director at Laser Science Services (I) Pvt. Ltd, commented on the significance of LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA 2012: “Laser Science will showcase various scientific and industrial laser systems and allied equipments from our various principals.” He also said that they consider LASER World of PHOTONICS INDIA as an important platform to strengthen relations with end customers, system integrators and exhibitors.
The Laser & Photonics industry is still at a nascent stage in the country, but is known to be a contributor in generating approximately USD 500 million every year in related application sectors. But thanks to a mushrooming telecommunications & manufacturing sector, many believe that photonics will play a vital role in India’s future development.
Bala Sahane, Owner at Laser Asia, reckons that the industry for Laser and applications is maturing slowly and that people are now looking for new technologies and processes which will give them a benefit of the global front.
