Dear Reader,

the innovative networking event W3+ FAIR for precision technologies will once again become the meeting place for high-tech industries in February 2017. As well as the compact exhibition, numerous high-level specialist presentations are planned. The programme will include short lectures by the European industry association EPIC, the Leica Microscopy Forum and the seminar "Hands-on Industry 4.0." by the Lahn-Dill Chamber of Commerce. School and university students are expected on the second day of the fair. If you like to know more about the fair, read our preview article.

In this newsletter we like to present a few products which are definitely worth a look. Baumer extends the CX Series to up to 12 Megapixel with Sony Pregius CMOS sensors and Variocam HDx Combines Top Performance with a Low Price. Interesting are the new products launched by Tattile and Mikrotron during the SPIE Photonix West in San Francisco.

Enjoy reading this newsletter!
