Boris Lange is responsible for Edmund Optics’ (EO) Imaging business and business development in Europe. Since joining the company in January 2015 as “Imaging Solutions Engineer”, Boris Lange has been supporting EO´s European key accounts in all technical regards related to Imaging and Machine Vision and was actively involved in forming a European Imaging team. Before, he has gained valuable experiences as an optical designer in the Analytics business unit at Polytec, developing VIS, NIR and Raman spectrometers. Boris holds a PhD in physics from Mainz University and GSI Helmholtzzentrum for Heavy-Ion Research. His thesis examined coherent EUV light sources generated by high-energy lasers.
What is the background and formation of company?
Edmund Optics (EO) has been a supplier of optics and optical components to industry since 1942, designing and manufacturing a wide array of multi-element lenses, lens coatings, imaging systems, and Opto-Mechanical equipment. Led by a staff of skilled optical engineers and scientists, EO holds great competency in imaging and imaging components and provides complete imaging solutions with a large product line, technical expertise, design and manufacturing capabilities, extensive technical support, and assists customers in every way possible to optimize the performance of their imaging system. EO is application focused and pursues new ways to implement optical technology, enabling advancements in semiconductor manufacturing, industrial metrology, and medical instrumentation. Our precision products, reaching from stock items in the catalogue to customized versions of imaging lenses, from low to high volume, improve efficiencies and yields and are used in test and measurement quality assurance applications, the automation of manufacturing processes, and research: “EO – Your Partner for Advanced Imaging Optics!”
What is the latest innovative products?
Our latest product launches involve integrated liquid lenses enabling autofocus applications as well as ruggedized lenses allowing for robustly calibrated instruments in the robotics and 3D metrology space. We also have a new lens series for APS-C sensors featuring TFL mounts, which offers several advantages over the current alternatives.
How will this impact on the market?
Regarding liquid lenses the ease of integration always was an obstacle. IDS and Pixelink integrating the electronics to drive them in their cameras was a big step in making things easier for the user, we certainly expect a lot of traction here. Concerning the TFL mount we are trying to establish, we also get a lot of positive feedback from camera manufacturers. While today Lucid Vision is the only one offering a TFL mount camera you will see a few more moving forward.
What are the plans for 2020?
EO will continue to bring innovative product to the market to address current needs in factory automation, semicon, 3D metrology and robotics – stay tuned for Vision 2020!
