The optics industry has always been a shining light of German innovation - and that for more than 100 years!
Etching technology can provide a valuable service to the optics industry, as well as the sensor technology sector, to keep it that way.
This is based on ...
- the fact that etching technology offers very good support for rotary encoder disks with a large number of slots, for a successful compromise of complexity, flatness, and price.
- the fact that a blackening of the surface against light reflection is possible.
- sputter masks, e.g. for the vacuum deposition of sensors, that can be manufactured completely burr-free.
