The Optatec international trade fair for optical technologies, components and systems will open its doors at its usual venue in Frankfurt from the 18th through the 20th of October, 2022. The significance of this leading trade is once again substantiated by the fact that more than 45% of all currently registered exhibitors come from outside of Germany. Nowhere else do experts, manufacturers and users of optotechnology and image processing meet in such a focused manner as at Optatec.

Production and quality assurance managers, as well as manufacturing directors and system integrators, are once again looking forward to Optatec 2022 as a key trade fair for the optotechnology and machine vision sectors. They’re able to gain a comprehensive impression of worldwide offerings for products, stand-alone and system solutions, as well as applications including optical components, optomechanics, optoelectronics, fibre-optics, fibre-optic cables, laser components and manufacturing systems. Optatec, which is taking place for the 15th time this year, has established itself as an exclusive industry meet – small, impressive and highly specialised. Expert visitors with decision-making competence meet up here with specialists from various fields and discover concentrated, state-of-the-art, future-oriented offerings. Trade fair visits are made use of to address precisely specific target groups and they make it much easier to arrive at investment decisions.

Optotechnology and Image Processing: Booming Issues of the Future!

Optotechnology and image processing are highly significant in all industrial and non-industrial sectors. For predicting weather and climate data, for reliable quality inspection processes and for the development of driver assistance systems – optics and photonics play a major role in all areas of life and are becoming increasingly important. Photonics, biophotonics, photovoltaics and image processing are booming technologies! Driving forces for the optical technologies include increasing degrees of automation, widespread use of autonomous systems and increasingly stringent quality requirements in both industrial and non-industrial sectors. Analytical, bio and laboratory technologies, as well as pharmaceuticals and healthcare, require the most advanced, highly precise, future-proof optotechnology systems. The implementation of forward-looking factors such as artificial intelligence, autonomous mobility, new forms of learning, personalisation and smart cities is based on the latest technologies in the fields of optotechnology and image processing. Visitors and other interested parties from the fields of robotics and automation technology, laser technology, the automotive industry, aviation and aerospace, medical technology and medical imaging, as well as lighting technology, are thus eager to see what’s new at Optatec.

From Academia to Practical Application

Representatives from the universities will of course be on hand again this year – they’ll be organising the “Education & Research” technology park presented by the Darmstadt and RheinMain Universities of Applied Sciences and the Technical University of Central Hesse. This promotes a concrete transfer of knowledge from research to everyday company operations. With their concept based on practical orientation, trade fair promoters P. E. Schall focus on direct user benefits and aim to create direct solution options for practical use in manufacturing.

Optatec takes place regularly once every two years as a trade fair highlight and had to be postponed this year to October from its usual timeslot in mid-May. Optatec 2022 will now pick up where the highly successful trade fair left off in 2018. Optatec will be held for the first time in hall 8 – with roughly 30,000 square metres of floor space, it’s the largest hall on ground level at the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre. It’s favourable location is easily accessible and can be reached via direct suburban railway connection. The dates for visitors and other interested parties are firm: 18 to 20 October 2022 in Frankfurt.
