Photonics4Manufacturing will be attending Made Smarter Innovation Alley 2022 fromĀ  3:30pm-4:30pm on Wednesday 16th November at the Data Theatre, Smart Factory Expo, Liverpool.

This event will explore how photonics, the technology of light, can support manufacturing businesses in their digitalisation journey. Photonics is already widely used in material processing from laser job shops to the semiconductor industry, but it is also vital for Industry 4.0 through fibre optics, additive manufacturing, IIoT, 5G, and even quantum communication.

This short session will highlight the support available for manufacturers to adopt photonics technology and present case studies of photonics in manufacturing.
