This webinar will discuss ultraprecision machines for optics, covering aspects of machine design, related software development, inline automated metrology, and hybrid processes. The presenter will also cover new materials in optics manufacturing.
About the presenter
Christian Wenzel, Ph.D., studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University with a focus on production engineering. He completed his Diploma with a thesis on applied diode laser welding at the Fraunhofer CLT in Plymouth, Michigan. He then commenced his doctoral studies at the Fraunhofer IPT in Aachen, Germany. After obtaining his Ph.D. in May 2006, he continued working at the Fraunhofer IPT as Chief Engineer of the Department for Precision & Ultra-Precision Machine Tool Development directed by Professor Christian Brecher.
In 2008, Dr. Christian Wenzel founded Innolite Tailored Molds & Optics as a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute. In 2016, he left the Institute to become fully involved in the company. Today, Innolite has 30 employees driving the leading edge of innovation in the field of ultraprecision machine tool development.
