Don´t be afraid of Photonics

Under this heading at the Production Forum in Vienna at the end of May, kdg CEO Michael Hosp outlined our development from our start as a CD pressing plant to becoming a photonics service provider.

"In actual fact, we were predestined for photonics, we just didn't know it", is how kdg CEO Michael Hosp summed up his lecture at this year's Production Forum in Vienna at the end of May, which took place at the invitation of the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology on the oc

Microstructures to summer drinks

Because trade fair days are long, next week in Munich we will always end our own at the LASER World of PHOTONICS with a "Hoangart". Make sure you drop by to Hall B1, booth 225B from the 26th to the 29th of June.

Yes indeed, the last few days have really felt like summer. And that's how it should, and hopefully will, continue. The microstructures in the meantime have been packed, and so have the ingredients for our summer drinks.

Successful poster session at PRN 2017

We have already presented our latest research results on the topic of "Cost-efficient Replication of 2D Microstructures" at the 4th International Conference "Polymer Replication on Nanoscale" in Aachen, at the beginning of May.

The manufacture of microstructures hasn’t been a trade secret in technological terms, for quite some time now. However, most procedures are still extremely complex and costs correspondingly high, and there are also restrictions with respect to materials.

Off to LASER with new master geometries

Whether it's diffraction gratings or microstructures on planar surfaces, our case of samples for the LASER World of PHOTONICS on 26th-29th June is already packed and ready to go. Come and see us. You will find us in Hall B1, at Stand 225B.

Our R&D Project Manager Manuel Meckle has not been at his desk much over the past few weeks.

OptecNet calls, we come

We will be at the OptecNet Annual Conference this coming week in Mainz not only as participants but also with our own booth. You can also find us first at the lectures and then during the breaks at Booth L3 in scenic Leibniz Saal.

It’s about time to strengthen the interregional and interdisciplinary ideas of networking, write Daniela Reuter, Chairman of OptecNet Deutschland, her representative, Dr. Andreas Ehrhardt, and the treasurer, Dr.

Professional group in optical design for guests in Elbigenalp

The networking meeting of the professional group in optical design from bayern photonics and the working group in optical design and simulation of photonics BW took place at kdg for the first time on 24 November 2016.

Admittedly, we couldn’t provide the dreamlike winter wonderland that our host Michael Hosp showed at the beginning of his short company presentation to our guests on the day of the meeting. But we had to wait until the New Year for that, anyway.

Powerful beginning

kdg starts 2017 with not only a new logo but also a thrilling new motto.

You have probably noticed it already. For a few weeks, our logo has been a round symbol.

Leadership in Co-Creation

The kdg campus is launching its first training course on the topic of Innovation Culture. The deadlines are 19-20 January and 7-8 March.

kdg opticomp’s customers and business partners already had the opportunity to try out this new area of kdg at the beginning of July last year.

Facing Christmas

When it is the time for Christmas and the year comes to an end it is the time to say: Thank you and stay well.

Haven’t we just been so busy and so full of ideas? Isn’t there still so much to do? But suddenly it is blinking and glittering and there are only a few advent calender windows left. So let us run outside just one more time. Well, didn’t we know the date 12 months ago?

New ISO Certificate

kdg Opticomp is now also certified according to ISO 9001:2015.

At the end of the day, Mathias ISO Kirschner, as we respectfully call him, could not resist a joyful grin, because this fall’s audit was not a normal monitoring audit, but our certification according to the new ISO Standard 9001:2015. If you want to do something, then do it, Kirschner thought.
