Richard van de Vrie, President & Founder LUXeXceL Group speaks about printing Optics

Richard van de Vrie of LUXeXcel Group will present during the 3D Printing Electronics Conference: “Printing the Future of Optics”.

To make a lens was an expensive and time consuming process. Now optics and photonics components can be 3D printed, enabling optics engineers to upload their CAD design and receive in a few days their 3D printed prototype or higher volumes of functional optical components. Since last decade the Lighting Manufacturers have huge challenges to follow the pace of the digital LEDs. Customizing the Light Distribution per application, project or even single product was simply not affordable. The Digitization of Optics Manufacturing has started and manufacturers do not need to work anymore with standard lenses but can customize the light distribution of every light fitting, saving energy and reducing Light Pollution!
