Hannover Messe 2018

From flexible OLEDs, 3D molds and additive thruster nozzles with cooling channels

Fraunhofer Group for Light and Surfaces / 13.2.2018

In times of digital transformation and industry 4.0, the focus is not only on robots or automation solutions. Coating technologies, functional materials and additive production are also gaining in importance. At the Hannover Messe, the Fraunhofer Group for Light & Surfaces will present current developments in the field of surface technology and photonics, including flexible OLEDs on plastic film, gas sensors and nanostructure demonstrators.

Digital Factory, Hall 6, booth A30

For the first time, the Fraunhofer Group for Light & Surfaces will be represented at the Hannover Messe 2018 at the Fraunhofer booth Digital Solutions under the topic of New Materials in the Digital Factory, hall 6. In addition to our expertise in lasers, optics, metrology, optical systems, optics manufacturing and system simulation, the Fraunhofer Group for Light & Surfaces will present developments in surface technology and photonics and will be showing flexible OLEDs on plastic film, gas sensors and nanostructure demonstrators.
