Workshop about photonics

One of the EU's designated areas for enabling technologies is photonics. It is based on the use of light of various forms, e.g. radio waves, UV, IR or visible light, radar, x-ray, etc. and can be used in many different contexts, e.g. for instrumentation and sensor technology for production control, non-destructive testing, material technology, marking, monitoring, vision systems, measuring and analysis instruments, tool and machine manufacturing, digitization - industry 4.0, automation, additive manufacturing, optical components and systems, etc.

Date: 11 April, 13.00 – 16.00
Place: Domnarvsgården, Borlänge, Sweden

Your company can have room for presentation of a challenge or solution that you have and which can be linked to photonics-based techniques. If you are suppliers of equipment, there are opportunities for contacts with customers - or vice versa!

Or why not just come in and listen to what is happening in the area?


  • PIMAP - an opportunity for innovative companies to develop or apply technology solutions based on photonics for an international market
  • Possible applications and needs for photonics in steel and metal related activities Jan Kokk, Sandvik SMT and Saed Mousavi, SSAB.
  • Pär Kierkegaard, Shapeline, tells about the possibilities of using laser technology to measure dimensions or shape and how this can be linked to process or quality control.
  • Radar company Patrik Ottoson shows how radar technology can be used in various applications.
  • Temperature Sensing in Steel Plants using Fiber Optics, Johan Pejnefors, Proximion
  • Workshop with discussions on business opportunities for small and medium-sized companies. Do you have a challenge or technology where photonics can be linked to solutions, products, processes or service? Welcome to bring your own ideas!
  • For those interested: Study visits to Swerim, Kista, April 12. Resource eg. for metal-related analyzes, projects and test beds. See program below!

Participation is free of charge!

Registration no later than April 5 with ev. wishes to present your company, and possibly participation in study visits
April 12 to: Lena Norrström,

Triple Steelix participates as a partner in the COSME project PIMAP, which is aimed at small and medium-sized companies who want to find new opportunities in a global market.
Via the PIMAP project, which is a test of a concept for supporting small and medium-sized companies that want to grow internationally, there are also opportunities for discounted participation in fairs, currently focusing on markets in the US and Canada.
