Versatile LUXeXceL Invests In 3D Printing Factory For LED Optics

March 26th, 2014 by  

In the field of LED optics, one recent improvement has barely been announced, but on the very heels of that another refinement of LED is in progress. Some engineers and their adept associates recently finished the design of efficient 3D printers (for LED OPTICS), but the LUXeXceL engineers and their associates continue tirelessly innovating anew.

Linear Led Fixtures

LUXeXceL Group, the inventor of the revolutionary Printoptical® Technology, and global leader in the Additive Manufacturing of optical components, announces to invest in a new 3D printing factory dedicated to manufacturing  volumes of LED lighting optics. This month the first housing and installation activities have started to ensure that the first digital production line will be operational by the second half of 2014.

Via LUXeXceL’s one step “CAD-to-Optic” 3D printing process, optical components are printed smooth and do not require post processing. This ability offers LED Lighting manufacturers significant cost and time savings for rapid prototyping and manufacturing. The ability to design prototypes and volume products and receive them in just a few days, can reduce inventories, help product development and allow for project oriented customization. The digital process has perfect scalability. This allows prototyping, small batch production, and medium volume manufacturing using the same technique. This gives the optics designer the capability of production on demand, the flexibility to iterate and the opportunity to improve continuously.

The founder and CEO of LUXeXceL, Richard van de, shares of the company’s changes with design:

We are changing the way optics are designed, produced, and now digitally stored. Our new printers will enable us to print very precise LED lighting optics and will allow us to jet new optical materials. This increases the design capabilities we offer to optical designers and enables the LED Industry to customize per application, project or even single product.

Joris Biskop, CTO of LUXeXceL, continues:

I am proud our team has developed a specific printer that will deliver both speed and  precision in the manufacturing of optics. This is a foundation for further innovation in the 3D printing of optics. I am confident that with the support we get from our customers, partners and universities, our capabilities will further improve rapidly.

    it is brilliant how innovations match.
    and produce super cool products.
    7 years ago nobody was aware of LED.
    3 D did not even exist

    and now LED is made by 3D
