In recent years 3D printing has come to the forefront as a disruptor for manufacturing processes across all industries, from the production of pharmaceuticals to prototyping automotive parts. Luxexcel is now bringing a completely unique solution to the 3D printing landscape: transparency.
With patented Printoptical © Technology, Netherlands-based Luxexcel is the only company in the world to provide a 3D printing service for fully transparent, perfectly smooth and optically functional products.
With Luxexcel's transparent 3D printing service, customization is now possible for optics and products that require the highest standard in transparency. We offer digital manufacturing as a service for rapid prototyping and manufacturing of transparent products. Upload your file, receive an instant quote and receive your 3D printed product within 5 working days.Transparent 3D printing
Our 3D printing technology allows you to prototype and manufacture transparent products within days. Instead of printing layer by layer, our Printoptical © Technology uses small droplets which are cured by UV light. In this way, you can print your optic transparent and smooth without visible layering and any post-processing.Printoptical © Technology
Our transparent 3D printing service allows you to upload your lens or free-form CAD design directly on our website. Iterations to your design can be easily managed by making adjustments to the CAD file. Your transparent product can be manufactured on demand. You will receive your 3D printed products within 5 working days.Upload your file here
3D printed optics do offer significant benefits in manufacturing speed, flexibility and affordability.
Paviom LoFoot lighting fixture is easily customizable thanks to the availability of a 3D printed prismatic tilt lens that helps to redirect the light from a purely symmetrical into a tailored asymmetrical light beam.
“A good product simulation, or prototype is more and more important in product development. It makes it possible to reduce loops and in consequence also reduce development process lead time.”
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.
Thanks to the ease, speed and flexibility of Luxexcel's fast Printoptical process we've got an even more perfect and funtionality improved luminaire at the same time.
We selected printed optics by Luxexcel because it is a true enabling technology that allowed us to rapidly and inexpensively prototype and test our concept.
The fast and flexible Luxexcel Prototyping process enabled us to create customized optics for our LpS2015 Heat spreader demonstrator with delivery of the parts in a very short timeframe.
Luxexcel's 3D printing technology enabled us to make use of rapid prototyping for optics. With this unique technology we were able to refine our product and iterate until we were satisfied with the product design of the f.lens
Bartenbach recommends clients to invest in high quality Luxexcel prototypes before starting the series production.
Creating optics with Luxexcel’s patented Printoptical® Technology is a great advancement in the manufacture of 3D printed optics and we are thrilled to bring these components to the photonics industry.
Without the speed of Luxexcel’s fast printing process for LED optics we would never have managed to get our show presentation ready in time.
