Aixtooling GmbH

Booth number: 4529-66

Aixtooling is your dedicated partner for precision molded glass optics.

The German company was founded in 2005 in Aachen as a spin-off from Fraunhofer Institute of Production technology IPT. We cover the entire value chain for precision molding of optical glass lenses. Core competences are mold design, manufacture of highprecision mold systems, molding process setup, prototyping as well as serial precision glass molding.

The technology of isothermal glass molding is suitible for the production of ready-to-use optics with shape accuracies down to lambda/6. Applications can be found in different industries (laser technologies, medical industries etc.) and cover aspherical optics in
different sizes, cylindrical optics, lens arrays, torical lenses and free form elements. Recently even diffractive optics have been molded sucessfully.

Good strategic partnerships, the use of excellent equipment, extensive technological expertise, trusting collaboration with customers and suppliers are the fundamental principles of Aixtooling GmbH. Please visit us at Photonics West 2018.
