Precision Fair 2021 focus on the future of precision engineering

Precision engineering is one of the foundations of the Dutch knowledge and innovation economy. This became clear once again on 10 and 11 November 2021, during the 20th edition of the Precision Fair, organised by Mikrocentrum.


A record number of exhibitors, 320, presented their innovations to visitors. The focus was on the future of precision engineering, culminating in the keynotes by Jelm Franse of ASML and Prof. Cheng of Brunel University, as highlighted in this Mikroniek article. Naturally, the present and the past also received ample attention: in the lecture programme, on the exhibition floor and at the 20 Years Precision Fair expo.
