Messe Stuttgart helps organize event focused on laser applications in Central Europe

The LASYS Meets Central Europe event will focus on laser applications for the automobile industry

Messe Stuttgart (Germany) and the German-Slovak Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Slowakei; Bratislava, Slovakia) are organizing a LASYS Meets Central Europe event, which will take place May 30-31, 2017, in Trnava, Slovakia. The event will focus on laser applications for the automobile industry, and will bring together suppliers of laser production systems, laser-specific machine subsystems, components, processes and services, and industrial users.

The Trnava region is home to a large number of industrial companies—especially from the automobile production sector, which is rapidly expanding throughout Slovakia. The event will demonstrate the potential of lasers to increase quality and production to interested laser users from the automobile and automotive component supply industries and other branches of industry.

Exhibitors at LASYS will be able to access a future-oriented user market because economic activity in the Slovakian automobile industry, which produced more than one million cars in 2016 for the second year in succession, is leading to rising demand for laser technology. The expansion of the Volkswagen plant in Bratislava and production at a new Jaguar-Land Rover plant scheduled to start in mid-2018 have provided a further boost to the investment plans of local companies.

LASYS, an international trade fair, focuses on system solutions in laser material processing. Since 2008, it has served as a user platform for the latest laser systems, machines, and processes. LASYS covers all industries and materials, and is primarily aimed at decision-makers from international industry.
