Products and services

At Photonics West 2017, we present new developments in manufacturing high-precision glass optics and automated assembly of complex mechatronic products used in optics, micro systems technology and medical technology.

Industry 4.0 in precision glass molding
When manufacturing optical lenses, every detail counts. In order to stabilize and optimize the manufacturing process, Fraunhofer researchers are using digitalized processes. At Photonics West 2017, Fraunhofer experts will be showing how Industry 4.0 approaches can improve the development and manufacture of glass optics.

Customizable micromanipulator technology for ultra-precise positioning

Customizable micromanipulator technology for ultra-precise positioning

The micromanipulator technology developed at Fraunhofer IPT was designed to perform demanding precision alignment tasks in up to six degrees of freedom as required for the alignment of optical elements in laser systems, camera objectives or medical devices. Two basic design variants with three (C3) or with six degrees of freedom (C6) are available.
