Interesting target group with challenging requests

Also this year we have had good meetings. Striking this year was the interest in PEEK, the accuracy and complexity of the plastics machining that we can realize and the knowledge we have in the field of plastics.

"The variety of plastic products that were displayed in the showcase often drew the attention of the visitors. Aside from the different plastics that we showed, such as PEEK, POM, PMMA, Epoxy and Torlon etc, good contacts were built that will be followed up in the near future. Of course, these requests often are challenging. We love these kind of requests because we can position ourselves even further on the optical market. Because there is still a lot of potential for us, certainly if one will appreciate plastic as a material."

Visitors were very impressed by our machining capabilities," said Berrie van de Burgt, Sales Director.
