Rockwell Collins, a pioneer in the development of aviation electronic solutions, and Luxexcel, 3D printing service for optical grade transparent products, collaborated to test applications of 3D printed lenses.
In a joint research project, different lens designs were 3D printed, tested, optimized and reprinted. This iterative development project results in the expanded design freedom with Luxexcel’s Printoptical Technology. These developments definitely open up new possibilities for the aerospace market as well as related markets.

Luxexcel CEO Eric Tierie states: “Rockwell Collins is a key player in the aerospace market. To be endorsed and selected this world-leading company really strengthens our belief that we are on the right track. It supports our mission to disrupt the design and manufacturing world of polymer based optics. We are very excited to manufacture 3D printed optics for a company with a great global workforce”.
