LONDON, March 19, 2015-- CleanEquity® Monaco 2015, the forum for emerging cleantech and resource efficiency companies, hosted by the London based specialist investment bank Innovator Capital, closed on Friday, 6th March with the Awards Ceremony in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
An independent panel of judges, chaired by His Serene Highness, selected Luxexcel as winner of the award for Excellence in the Field of Environmental Technology Commercialisation.
Mungo Park, Chairman of Innovator Capital commented: "Luxexcel's system for optics manufacturing is poised to become one of the worlds leading resource efficiency technology success stories. Its unique capability to reduce cost and increase yield by faster fabrication & production flexibility using 3D printing of plastic optics is a game changer particularly for LED lighting."
Luxexcel was founded to offer optical designers a digital route from design to optics manufacturing, solving known supply problems in the lighting industry. By making use of the Luxexcel 3D printing platform, smooth optical components and transparent products can be printed with high accuracy. The patented Printoptical Technology works for both prototyping and small to midsize series manufacturing. Optical elements can be ordered online and will be ready for shipment within 5 working days.
Richard van de Vrie, President and Founder of Luxexcel is very excited with the Excellence in the Field of Environmental Technology Commercialisation Award: "By being named as winner the freedom and flexibility of optics manufacturing, that is made possible by our 3D printing technology, is recognized. It changes the way optics are manufactured and will contribute to a more efficient use of our environmental resources. Our 3D print service is fully digital which makes custom optics accessible 24/7 and allows for ordering optics on demand."
The additive way of making lenses could help designers to develop novel optical functions and components for the future generation of products for various markets where optics are key.
