Aachen Polymer Optics Days International Conference

As demands to be met by optical products become increasingly exacting, the optical components used assume greater importance, reflecting the trend for optical plastics which must be produced not only cost efficiently but also with ever higher levels of precision in a continuous process. Complex applications based on optical systems with ultra-precision microstructures are attracting enormous interest in a number of sectors such as medical engineering or automotive manufacturing. In addition to the classical injection molding processes, roll-to-roll techniques rank particularly highly among the technologies of the future.

The Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2018 provide an excellent networking platform for visitors from industry and research who are interested in participating in a lively exchange of ideas and opinions relating to manufacturing options and potential applications for optical plastic products. Speakers giving 16 specialist lectures will shed more light on the following four subject areas:

Injection moulded optics

Continuous production of planar optics and films

Innovative optical grade polymers and applications

Light sources and optical systems

Digitalization for the optic production

The papers presented by experts in their respective subject areas will outline  the current developments and trends from a production-oriented point of view, highlighting application-related aspects. The conference is part of the overarching event “Aachen Optic Days” and takes place in this framework for the first time this year.

Seize the opportunity offered by this conference as a prestigious industry event to swap ideas with other experts!
