Finnish-German Online Symposium and Matchmaking

Optical Design and Manufacturing

November 24, 2020 @ 3:45 pm 7:30 pm EET

In cooperation with our partners from Photonics HUB this free of charge online symposium aims to provide insight into Optical Design and Manufacturing in Germany and Finland and offers the possibility for international matchmaking.

What can you expect:

  • Online Symposium on optical design and manufacturing with a variety of Finnish and German speakers in the field of Optical Design and Manufacturing
  • Virtual match making for members of Photonics Hub/Optence and Photonics Finland (limited number of participants)
    • partnering in advance
    • 1-to-1 online meetings 

For participation in the matchmaking please contact Angelika Murr (

Registration for the symposium at the following link


Time is in EET

13:45–14:05Introduction and housekeeping  

German cluster introduction
Dr. Angelika Murr, Project Manager Internationalization, Photonics Hub GmbH  

Finnish cluster introduction
PhD Ana Gebejes, Head of Projects, Photonics Finland
14:05–14:30Ultra precision manufacturing of optics
Benjamin Bulla, Managing Director, son-x GmbH  

The process of ultra precision manufacturing will be introduced as well as it’s potentials and limits. Furthermore the applicable markets will be presented and dedicated examples will be highlighted.
14:30–14:55Multi Tool Concept
Kai Brückmann, Technical Sales, OptoTech Optikmaschinen GmbH  

Optical components are getting tighter in tolerances and often require post-processing, means correction or finishing. Apart from that new optical designs use more frequently non-conformal optics, complex shapes and extreme geometries. Each surface requires a different approach for finishing. This presentation shall introduce various technologies and presents use cases and practical examples. 
14:55–15:20Photonics manufacturing services from the corner of Europe
Kimmo Solehmainen, Sales Director, Oplatek Group Oy  

We believe that for companies having products based on photonic solutions it is wise to outsource some (if not all) of their key component manufacturing. This talk presents the manufacturing technologies and expertise which have enabled more than 1000 different photonics solutions to be developed and produced for a wide range of industries. In addition, some challenges and internal developments are shared.
