Glass is a durable, effective, environmentally-friendly and essential material which has various uses.
For nearly a century, Holophane has produced and transformed glass for technical applications. Now, thanks to the automation of its production tool, Holophane is a world leader in glass optical components for automotive lighting.
The consolidation of expertise in optics, project management and prototyping helps to deal with the technical challenges of lighting in the 21st century, and also to offer competitive solutions to other business sectors.
In order to offer to our customer, a « best-in-class » unitary traceability system on our LED lenses, Holophane has invested in 2020, in a laser engraving system which can now be used in serial production.
A unitary “Data Matrix Code” (DMC) is engraved on each leans manufactured on our serial lines. This technology allows Holophane to ensure and monitor a very precise traceability of our products at each key steps of our manufacturing process.
This feature has been implemented in collaboration with one of our tier-1 automotive customer as part of the development and engineering of LED lenses for a premium vehicle.
This unitary traceability is now available and offered by Holophane on all LED lenses but could be deployed to other product lines should our customers decide to extend it to other applications.
