SCHOTT drives autonomous mobility forward
Glass solutions play a key role in improving LiDAR sensors in self-driving cars

When it comes to autonomous driving, light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technologies are the foundation upon which a next-generation machine vision can be built. LiDAR sensors, together with radar and cameras, will be linked by artificial intelligence (AI) to enable the highest level of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS 5) and allow for full automation of all driving functions. However, none of the existing LiDAR technologies on the market today meet the performance and reliability requirements to support fully autonomous driving at a competitive price level. SCHOTT is prepared to propel autonomous driving into the future with the broadest range of high-quality glass components and hermetic packaging available to LiDAR manufacturers and suppliers at scale.

SCHOTT builds state-of-the-art plant for high-quality pharmaceutical glass tubing in China
The international technology group SCHOTT held a goundbreaking ceremony for its greenfield pharmaceutical glass tubing plant in Jinyun, Zhejiang.

The capacity expansion comes at a time when China is aspiring to become an innovative global powerhouse. Particularly the pharmaceutical sector plays a key role within China’s innovation roadmap, which is moving from manufacturing generics to new drug development. This shift is further underlined by the “Healthy China 2030” initiative. Subsequently, there is a high demand for premium pharmaceutical packaging made out of Type I pharmaceutical glass in the local market. The demand for high quality drug packaging products is further underlined through government initiatives and ever-growing patient safety standards. The new plant will enable SCHOTT to participate in the advancement of the Chinese pharmaceutical packaging industry. SCHOTT will invest 60 million Euros in the first phase to install a yearly capacity of up to 20.000 tons. The production is scheduled to start at the end of 2020.

Pre-scored chip substrates provide new options for manufacturers of innovative diagnostic consumables
SCHOTT NEXTERION® PreScora will be featured at the American Association of Clinical Chemistry’s annual scientific meeting and clinical lab expo in Anaheim, Ca., August 4 to 8.

Biotech companies have made remarkable strides developing lab-on-a-chip (LoaC) technology — ever smaller chips that integrate laboratory functions for rapid diagnostic testing. Performing the precise manufacturing steps that these remarkable diagnostic consumables require, such as the application of coating or the printing of barcodes, is getting more difficult and expensive as miniaturization progresses. SCHOTT now eases these challenges by offering NEXTERION® PreScora. These pre-scored substrates can undergo processing steps as a whole and easily be fashioned to their final size afterwards. This lowers production cost significantly while enabling diagnostic consumable and equipment manufacturers to leverage the performance advantages of a high quality glass chip.

A Sensor Packaging Revolution
Pioneering technologies complement SCHOTT’s hermetic sensor packaging portfolio

Sensors are only as good as their individual components. When they need to function in extreme operating environments or deliver superior and stable optical performance, hermetic packaging and sealing comes into play. SCHOTT has now complemented its vast and long-established portfolio of hermetic packaging components with further ground-breaking innovations: HEATAN™ technology enables reliability in ultra-high temperature applications even beyond 1000°C, while Primoceler™ glass micro bonding enables ultra-miniaturized chip-size sensor packages.
