Pilot line for the production of optical components

B-PHOT's pilot line for optical components and opto-fluidic lab-on-chips enables rapid prototyping and mass replication. Thanks to high-precision diamond processing, we can produce free-form optics in plastic. We can also produce small series in mould construction and via replication by hot pressing or micro-injection moulding.
