About us

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.

Mold systems for multi cavity molding

Aixtooling offers the design and manufature of entire mold systems for double sided multi cavity molding. Multi cavity molding scales the productivity of the process and enables the customer to manufacture several precision lenses by just one molding cycle.

Aixtooling has wide range experience for multi cavity mold systems, knows the choice of appropriate materials and is able to definie of appropriate manufacturing tolerances.

Precision molded glass optics

Aixtooling offers precision molding of complex optics in glass. We have the capability to developand qualify the entire process chain for your specific lens specification. The process is flexible with regards to the choice of glass type. However, standardized glass molding pre-studies are suitible to check the moldability in advance.

Wafer Level Molding and Lens Arrays

Aixtooling offers molds and mold systems for wafer level molding and lens arrays. The ability to mold numerous lenslets with just one or a pair of mold inserts offers new possibilities for micro optical applications.
