Docter Optics Develops High-Speed Molding Technology
NEUSTADT AN DER ORLA, Germany, March 18, 2011 — A high-speed molding technology that can form optical components from glass taken directly from a furnace — without any polishing or grinding — has been developed by Docter Optics.
Initial operation of high-speed molding technology.
Funded in part by the European Union, the company said this process will demonstrate that sophisticated optical components can be economically produced using an "in line" molding process.
High-volume applications also include light pipes, which are required in modern concentrated photovoltaic systems, LED illumination technology and wherever secondary optical elements of glass are called for.
