Edmund Optics and LUXeXceL Bring 3D Printed Plastic Optics to the Photonics Industry

Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, announced today that it has formed a working relationship with LUXeXceL Group BV to bring 3D printed plastic optics to the photonics industry.

Stop by Edmund Optics booth 1615 during Photonics West, to see a variety of 3D printed optics designed by Edmund Optics and printed by LUXeXceL. Be sure not to miss the lens array comparison demo where you can see firsthand the performance of 3D printed lens arrays as compared to traditional glass molding in a hands-on illumination application.   In addition, LUXeXceL will be describing their innovative technology at the Edmund Optics booth on Wednesday, February 11, at 3:30 pm.

“We’re always interested in offering new technologies for our customers to elevate their applications,” said Samuel Sadoulet, President and COO of Edmund Optics. “Creating optics with LUXeXceL’s patented Printoptical® Technology is a great advancement in the manufacture of 3D printed optics and we are thrilled to bring these components to the photonics industry. 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.”

LUXeXceL Group is the world’s first 3D printing service for optically transparent and very-smooth products. With their revolutionary additive manufacturing services optical components such as micro structures, arrays, prisms, and freeform lenses are all possible.  LUXeXceL’s 3D printed plastic optics are ideal for illumination, photovoltaic, and prototyping applications.  LUXeXceL is also a 2015 finalist for the prestigious Prism Awards to be announced on February 11, 2015.

“We look forward to our joint effort with Edmund Optics to bring 3D printed optics to the photonics industry,” commented Richard van de Vrie, President of LUXeXceL. “They are well-respected for their market knowledge and have a long-standing history of excellence in optics.”
