Photonic Process Chain & Industry 4.0 - Optilize I4.0: Network starts in Phase 2

January 2018. Following successful network activities in Phase 1, the ZIM Innovation Network "Optilize I4.0" was transferred to Phase 2.

The network will run until September 2019 in phase 2. The focus of the network and its 19 members (one large company, 13 SMEs, five research institutes) is the realization of an integrated optics manufacturing process chain. For this purpose, numerous projects along the production of glass, plastic and ceramic optics as well as the refinement of the optics with coatings are pursued. The topic of quality assurance of optics or coatings in projects will also be examined. Against the background of increasing demands on quality and individualized products, the topic of Industry 4.0 is also considered as part of the network for optical production. Production and measuring systems are to be upgraded in order to relieve both employees and meet customer requirements.
