International Conference: Polymer Optics Days 2018

Date: April 10-11, 2018



As demands to be met by optical products become increasingly exacting, the optical components used assume greater importance, reflecting the trend for optical plastics which must be produced not only cost efficiently but also with ever higher levels of precision in a continuous process. Complex applications based on optical systems with ultra-precision microstructures are attracting enormous interest in a number of sectors such as medical engineering or automotive manufacturing. In addition to the classical injection molding processes, roll-to-roll techniques rank particularly highly among the technologies of the future.

The Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2018 provide an excellent networking platform for visitors from industry and research who are interested in participating in a lively exchange of ideas and opinions relating to manufacturing options and potential applications or optical plastic products.

The papers presented by experts in their respective subject areas will outline the current developments and trends from a productionoriented point of view, highlighting applicationrelated aspects. The conference is part of the overarching event "Aachen Optic Days" and takes place in this framework for the first time this year.Seize the opportunity offered by this conference as a prestigious industry event to swap ideas with other experts!

The presentations will be held either in German or English and simultaneously interpreted, as required.
