Umicore Thin Film Products at the 11th Wetzlar Autumn Conference

Organised by OPTENCE optical network and Photonics Hub GmbH, the 11th Wetzlar Autumn Conference took place in Wetzlar - a major German optics centre - from 28.09. - 29.09.2021. Over the course of two days, around 120 visitors from Germany and abroad (managing directors, developers, technicians, sales staff) were able to exchange information about the latest developments in modern optics manufacturing.


For the first time since the beginning of the Corona pandemic, Umicore Thin Film Products AG exhibited at an industrial conference. After the longer break caused by the pandemic,  it was important for us to reconnect with our customers in person. Erich Schraner, Patrik Fischbach and Markus Stolze were on site and promoted Umicore’s coating materials.  In addition, they presented on various topics to customers such as "Advanced Driving Assistance & Autonomous Driving" using the example of LiDAR sensors as well as on new technologies such as "Augmented Reality". 


Our team also offered the possibility of future dialogue and technical support to optimize customers’ coating processes. This was very much appreciated by both sides after the longer time out. All in all, the 11th Autumn Conference in Wetzlar was a success for Umicore and promising contacts were made as well as valuable input from the various presentations held at the fair.
