Anywhere from automotive to pharmaceutical industry process monitoring is a key for safety control, production optimization and automatization. Spectroscopy and imaging are the fundamental technologies enabling in-line and on-line process monitoring in a reliable and non-invasive manner. During this meeting we will bring together the end-users and the photonics supply chain to discuss what new challenges have to be addressed as well as what new solutions are developed.

Technology Explainer

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
