This meeting will follow the development around the technology of 3 D printed optics, from design and materials to post-processing, polishing & grinding techniques. Real business opportunities will be created by gathering key players in the optical manufacturing field together with end-users looking for applications in lightings, ophthalmology, lab-on-chips and much more.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
