Ten Moscow companies will present their achievements at an international electronics fair, where their potential partners will be able to see crystal growing equipment, a laser knife, a radar system that can operate in the dark plus masses of other innovations too.

Electronica 2018, the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics that opened in Munich on 13 November, has brought together exhibitors from 84 countries, including Russia. The Moscow electronics producers are presented under a joint brand, Made in Moscow. They have brought over 30 novel projects together with various sorts of technology to Munich, Deputy Mayor Natalya Sergunina said.

“The electronics industry has been growing rapidly in Moscow. Its products have attracted the attention of partners from India, China, Europe as well as other countries. This major trade fair is yet another opportunity to take a stand on the global market. Ten companies from Moscow will display over 30 novel products and technologies under a joint brand, Made in Moscow. We hope that their participation in the Munich fair will offer them new growth opportunities and export contracts,” Natalya Sergunina said.

The exhibition organisers expect some 75,000 visitors this year. Alexei Fursin, Head of the Moscow Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development, said that the Moscow exhibitors would display innovative products, such as microchips, software, measurement tools, navigation equipment and accumulators.

Made in Moscow: Joint stand

The Moscow exhibitors will for the first time present unique equipment for growing leuco sapphire crystals, which can be used to create solid substances weighting up to 400 kilos. Visitors will also see the world’s only laser system working at a speed of one m/sec.

Another thing that will be on display will be a cutting-edge accumulator control system, which can increase the service life of a charging unit by 30 percent but costs only as much as its analogues.

The Moscow stand will also include equipment that has been used successfully for the construction of the Sukhoi Superjet 100. It is a multiplex mechanism used to monitor the quality of an electrical wiring interconnection system.

The Obzor (Vision) radar system can be used for road and rail transport, navigation and safety and surveillance systems. This radar set-up is effective even in heavy rain, thick fog and even complete darkness.

The Moscow participants will not only show their achievements at the Electronica 2018 fair, but will also have an opportunity to sign lucrative contracts with potential buyers, investors and technological partners during the MatchMacking meetings organised for this purpose.

Electronica 2018 will last until 16 November and is a showcase for innovative sorts of technology. It is also part of a large-scale international programme of fairs and exhibitions, the most famous of which is Productronica.

The Made in Moscow programme was launched in 2016 to organise joint stands at exhibitions in Russia and other countries. The city finances the participation of the programme members at the exhibitions and also organises business meetings, offering Moscow companies access to international markets.
