Admatec Europe BV, Goirle, the Netherlands, reports it recently sold two Admaflex 130 ceramic and metal Vat Photopolymerisation Additive Manufacturing machines to European universities. The new machines have been installed at the Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics (IPQ) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, and the Lycée Edgar Faure, Morteau, France.

The IPQ group works on many topics, including hybrid photonic integrated circuits, enabling the integration of complex optical systems in a very small footprint, and optical metrology and sensing, with goal to develop photonic sensor systems for applications in chemistry, biology, and the life-sciences. The group’s new Admaflex 130 is expected to be involved in a variety of projects, such as additively manufacturing the submounts for assemblies with optical chips.

The Lycée Edgar Faure is reputed to have one of France’s most prestigious horology programmes. More than 1200 students are learning technologies for producing parts for the watch industry. After training, teachers will use the machine to additively manufacture a wide range of components.
