EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands—Luxexcel, the technology provider for 3D printed prescription lenses, reported that its manufacturing platforms in the U.S. and Europe have reached a milestone in its production volume. According to the Netherlands-based company, its VisionPlatforms have printed over 50,000 lenses for customers in the traditional and smart eyewear, and high-tech industries. “Our VisionPlatforms offer customers the ability to 3D print lenses, and we’ve now scaled it for volume manufacturing,” said CEO Fabio Esposito.

“The exponential growth we’re achieving in the production in volume of 3D printed lenses on our platforms is a milestone to enable customers to combine prescription eyewear with smart technology.”

Luxexcel said it has optimized the printing processes of its VisionPlatforms to make volume manufacturing of prescription lenses more predictable, scalable, and flexible. “Together with our customers, we’ve now proven that VisionPlatform is stable, and offers scalability with the flexibility to create large volumes of lenses with individualized specifications, and prescription power,” said Guido Groet, chief strategy officer at Luxexcel.

The VisionPlatform forms part of Luxexcel’s complete volume manufacturing solution. The solution consists of proprietary hardware, software, materials, and support to enable customers and partners to commercially 3D print traditional or smart lenses with glasses wearers’ individualized prescription requirements. “All components of our volume manufacturing solution seamlessly work together to ensure that customers and partners can 3D print lenses in volume,” concluded Groet.
