In the land of the rising sun

Finetech, Lens Expo, NanoMicro biz: SCHOTT Advanced Optics scored points at three different trade fairs in Japan in April

The products and technologies that SCHOTT Advanced Optics offers on the Japanese market have had an excellent reputation for many years now. Therefore it only seemed logical to offer visitors to the various exhibitions the chance to form their own opinions of the latest innovations made in Germany.

For instance, the attendees were given the opportunity to take a closer look at the main highlight at SCHOTT Advanced Optics’ booth: ultra-thin glass on roll, at Finetech, one of the world’s largest trade exhibitions on flat-screen monitors. Nevertheless, the unique coating for touch applications CONTURAN® DARO met with great interest from the international audience.

Many people also participated in the press meeting that SCHOTT held at its office in Tokyo the day before the exhibition opened. From there, the company traveled to Yokohama where both the Lens Expo and the NanoMicro biz were held simultaneously as part of the OPIE (International Exhibition on Optics and Photonics). High homogeneity glass types up to the quality levels H4 and H5 that are in ever greater demand, but also wafers and ultra-thin glasses were the main highlights of the successful presentations held at this event. “Attending three trade fairs inside of two weeks definitely put a strain on us,” explained Uwe Wilkens, Vice President of Sales for Asia at SCHOTT Advanced Optics. “Nevertheless, the effort was more than worth it considering the strong interest that more than 300 visitors showed and all the positive feedback we received,” he added.
