EPIC’s technology manager Antonio Castelo met Bjorn Andersen from a Danish developer of novel polymer optical fiber sensor systems.
Taking-off as a three-person startup in 1998, Toptica’s vision at the time was to humbly add its tunable diode lasers to the field of scientific photonics and to make a living for around ten people within five years.
Based on hyperspectral cameras from the Finnish manufacturer Specim, researchers have developed a smart all-in-one spectral imaging laboratory system for standardized automated data acquisition and real-time spectral model deployment.

Europe needs a battery industry. Internal combustion is a mastered technology on the old continent, but European companies need to improve their electric vehicle capabilities to reduce the gap to other markets.

In contemporary automotive production, automation is pervasive, and robots have become integral to manufacturing processes. To further improve efficiency and versatility, lasers have emerged as indispensable tools, supplanting conventional methods and offering numerous advantages in the automotive manufacturing landscape

Near infrared (NIR) light is becoming pervasive within products to improve perception, functionality, and safety. NIR is used in applications ranging from lidar and automotive ADAS to machine vision systems, night vision cameras, IR remotes, touch screens, and various medical and therapeutic uses.
Many features in today’s modern cars are designed to support drivers on their journeys all over the world. Working in the background and invisible to most, some of these hidden components provide us with increased comfort and safety no matter what the driving conditions are like.
Thanks to SMaC, high-strength coating materials can be applied quickly and efficiently, and simultaneously finished by machining.
An enormous number of production steps are required before a car completes its first miles on the road. (Cognex)
The automotive industry has undergone a revolution in lighting as LED technology has enabled new design opportunities, more brightness, and new imaginative effects.
