Edmund, Luxexcel Partner on 3-D Printed Optics

Jun 2015
BARRINGTON, N.J. — Edmund Optics has partnered with Luxexcel Group BV of the Netherlands to develop 3-D-printed plastic optical components.

Luxexcel’s patented Printoptical technology uses additive manufacturing techniques to create smooth, transparent optical components including microstructures, arrays, prisms and freeform lenses. The components are suited for illumination, photovoltaics and prototyping applications.

The company won the Prism Award in additive manufacturing last week during Photonics West in San Francisco.

“I am excited that this cooperation will make it easy for designers to prototype, fine-tune and ultimately perfect their designs, enabling the next generation of optically driven products,” said Samuel Sadoulet, Edmund Optics’ president and chief operating officer.

Edmund Optics produces optics, imaging and photonics technology for R&D, electronics, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, biomedical and military markets.
