Table ronde

Advanced Photonic machines for modern manufacturing

Manufacturing is undergoing a deep transformation in a wide range of industries (mechanical engineering, automotive, aerospace, medical, dental, etc.) driven by the vision of industry 4.0 and its tremendous potential. Switzerland has launched new thematic programmes such as the Impulse programme "Manufacturing technologies" to help Swiss industry to face the increasing pressure of international competition. Precision manufacturing is fully hit by this mega trend. What is the real situation? What are the scientific and industrial innovations, new companies entering the market and also the dangers? This year, we will meet specialist from industries, scientists and Innosuisse.
