Frohe Weihnachten

Das Jahr ist im Handumdrehen vergangen. Unser Team von Multiphoton Optics, bekannt als “Das MPO-Team ” möchte Ihnen ein warmes Danke für Ihr Vertrauen und kontinuierliche Unterstützung das ganze Jahr über aussprechen.

 

Liebe Kunden, Partner und Freunde,

wir hielten 2017 für ein spannendes und erfolgreiches Jahr für die Multiphoton Optics GmbH, aber 2018 übertraf unsere Erwartungen. Möglich wurde dies durch das Vertrauen und die Unterstützung, die wir von Ihnen allen erhalten haben. Sie haben durch viele große, aber auch kleinere Dinge zu unserem Erfolg beigetragen. Wir hatten das Glück mit Ihnen zusammenzuarbeiten, und konnten so unseren Weg eingeschlagen, MPO zu einem weltweit bekannten und erfolgreichen Unternehmen zu machen. Danke!

Wir haben an vielen Ausstellungen, Konferenzen und Workshops auf der ganzen Welt teilgenommen. Wir haben den Best of Industry Award 2018 erhalten, und unsere Geschäftsführerin, Dr. Ruth Houbertz, wurde in diesem Jahr zur Senatorin der Wirtschaft Europa ernannt. Mit unserer Hochpräzisen 3D-Druckplattform LithoProf3D ® hat das Team den industriellen Durchsatz, Skalierbarkeit und Kostenreduktion noch stärker als im Vorjahr gefördert. Die Vielfalt der Materialien, die in der Maschine verwendet werden können, wurde erhöht, und wir haben auch das letzte Puzzleteil, den Metalldruck, demonstriert. Präzision auf Abruf ist bereits Schnee von gestern, und wir haben die Prozessschritte und die Nutzung von Ressourcen weiter reduziert, um unseren Beitrag zum Klimaschutz zu leisten, der seit unserer Gründung und davor in unserem Unternehmen eine zentrale Rolle spielt.

Wir haben eine voll integrierte LithoProf3D ®-Maschine mit mehr Möglichkeiten als bisher, den LithoProf3D®-GSII, in den Markt eingeführt. Insbesondere die Fähigkeit, Teil von Standardprozessen zu sein, hat sich in vielen Integrationsprojekten gezeigt. Die Anforderungen unserer Kunden haben uns ständig herausgefordert. Unser exzellentes Team findet seinen Weg, Hindernisse zu überwinden und unsere Kunden bei ihren Produktideen zu unterstützen, neue Belichtungs- und Fertigungsstrategien zu entwickeln und diese in unsere Software umzusetzen, vom Infinite Field of View bis zum Railroad Beam Steering: Es bleibt nichts zu wünschen übrig. Im Jahr 2019 werden wir unsere Möglichkeiten erweitern, indem wir die Kapazitäten in jeder Hinsicht verdoppeln, vom Personal über die Standortgröße bis hin zur Anzahl der Maschinen. Wir werden mehr Innovationen in Bezug auf neuartige Fertigungsstrategien und eine nächste Maschinengeneration zeigen – es bleibt spannend, bleiben Sie dabei!

Wir wünschen Ihnen viel Spaß in diesem Jahr – beruflich und privat – und wünschen Ihnen frohe Weihnachten. Frohe Feiertage und ein glückliches und gesundes neues Jahr!

Alles Gute,

Ihr MPO-Team – immer einen Schritt voraus!

Happy x-mas

The year has passed in a blink of an eye. Our team at Multiphoton Optics, known as “The MPO Team” would like to take its time to send you a warm Thank You for your trust and continuous support throughout the year.

This post is also available in german.

Dear customers, partners, and friends,

we thought 2017 was an exciting and successful year for Multiphoton Optics GmbH, but 2018 even outperformed it by far more than expected. This has become possible by the trust and the support we have received from all of you. You contributed to our success by many things, big ones, and also smaller ones, but we had the luck to cooperate with you, and followed our path in making MPO a worldwide known and successful company. Thank you!

We attended many exhibitions, conferences, and workshops all over the globe. We have received the Best of Industry Award 2018, and our CEO & Managing Director, Dr. Ruth Houbertz, was designated as Senator of Economy Europe this year. The team has boosted industrial throughput, scalability, and cost-down processes using our High Precision 3D Printing Platform LithoProf3D® even more than last year. The variety of materials which can be used in the equipment was increased, and we also demonstrated the final piece of the puzzle which is metal printing. Precision on demand is already water under the bridge, and we continued to further reduce process steps and use of resources to give our contribution to climate protection which is in the streamline of our company from the very beginning on, and even before that.

We have launched a fully integrated LithoProf3D® machine with more possibilities than before, the LithoProf3D®-GSII. Particularly its capability to be part of standard process workflows has been shown in many integration projects. Our customer’s requirements have challenged us continuously. Our excellent team finds its way to overcome obstacles and to support our customers in their sophisticated product ideas, creating new exposure and fabrication strategies and implement these into our software, from infinite field of view to railroad beam steering: there is nothing left to be desired. In 2019, we will enhance our possibilities by doubling capacity in each perspective, from staff via space to equipment. We will demonstrate more innovations with respect to novel fabrication strategies and a next machine generation – be curious, stay tuned!

We hope you enjoyed this year – both professionally and privately – and we wish you Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy and Healthy New Year!

Best wishes,

Your MPO Team – Always a Step ahead!

Press Release

We have the Winners!

The dictionary defines winner as the following: Winner (noun win·ner  \ ˈwi-nər \)

  • a person or team that wins something,
  • one that is successful especially through praiseworthy ability and hard work,
  • a victor, one that wins admiration.

An example of a Winner is given in the Presentation of this year’s BEST OF INDUSTRY AWARD of the Machine Market (#MMBOI2018): “And the winner in the Category Additive Manufacturing is Multiphoton Optics GmbH in Würzburg, Germany. Home Run, and the crowd goes wild.” The happiness of all winners is reflected off their faces, congrats to the winners of all categories.

It is just like that in the dictionary, look it up! Yes, this year Multiphoton Optics GmbH was awarded the Machine Market’s Best Of Industry Award in the Category of Additive Manufacturing – Next Generation Optics Production.

The high tech startup Multiphoton Optics GmbH, Würzburg, Germany, initiator of the initiative “We start Würzburg Valley“, raises the bar with its High Precision 3D Printer LithoProf3D® in additive manufacturing for Production 4.0. Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is transferred to a new dimension via Multiphoton Optics’ High Precision Printer Platform LithoProf3D®. Beside the company’s already well-known microoptics which are fabricated with high throughput and highest precision for a large variety of applications – from illumination via imaging to augmented reality – the modularity of the LithoProf3D® was in the focus of the product development.

The intelligent machine concept is accompanied by a likewise modular software concept which provides machine codes with implemented process strategies which can significantly vary dependent on the application. The complete high precision 3D printing process is stored in the code. LithoProf3D® runs simple 3D structuring processes and sophisticated process sequences with different process strategies – high precision 3D printing from sub-µm to the centimeter scale for discrete optical components or monolithically integrated optics. For the latter, no assembly of components or post-processing of the optical surfaces is necessary, thus providing cost- and resource-efficient manufacturing.

“For the third time, on June 7, 2018, MM Machine Market honored outstanding industrial innovations with the Best of Industry Award. The award was presented to the best of the best in the industry at a festive gala event at the Vogel Convention Center in Würzburg. Because on the shortlist for this award, only companies that had already won an industry award, were nominated for it or their innovation on maschinenmarkt.de on demonstrably very large readers interest.
