The conference Aachen Polymer Optics Days is a joint event of the three research institutions

  • Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT
  • Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT
  • Institute for Plastics Processing (IKV) in Industry and Trade at RWTH Aachen University

The event was launched in 2014 with the aim of establishing a technology and application-oriented conference in the field of optical plastics processing. Since then, numerous speakers from industry and research have enriched the conference with exciting lectures on innovations and trends in optical plastic production. The topics of the events range from classical injection moulding to material-related issues and aspects of digitalisation in production.
