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 offers a 3D printing service for optical products that demand the highest standard in transparency and smoothness. The company is the only company in the world able to 3D print lenses, without visible layering and post-processing.
