About this event

As today’s optical systems require higher performance, we present solutions for the alignment of doublets and triplets that guarantee smaller tolerances in a shortened production time.

At the beginning of the online event traditional alignment methods are reviewed and evaluated. Easily limitations become visible that have to be overcome to realize a cost efficient assembly of doublets or triplets, reduce waste and still meet tighter tolerances. Subsequently, a new strategy for the automated active alignment of lenses is presented. Using TRIOPTICS OptiCentric® systems these working principles are practically demonstrated and discussed. An overview on the variety of available solution is given.

The information will be presented in a dialogue between the moderator and the expert using animated charts for demonstrating technical details, video sequences and directly at the alignment instrument. After the live presentation of the solutions and products, participants are given the chance to have individual question answered in a Q&A session.
