Online Conference “Bonding Technology for Automotive Lighting

Light has become an increasingly important criterion of differentiation for automotive manufacturers. DELO, Marelli Automotive Lighting, Plasmatreat, SÜSS MicroOptics, and Fraunhofer IOF are dedicating a separate conference to light and new lighting applications on November 9. The virtual event titled “Bonding Technology for Automotive Lighting” will focus on how functional materials and advanced production technologies enable innovative applications such as light carpets.

Light plays a key role in vehicles, not only for intelligent headlights, as an essential design element and expression of the brand, but also when it comes to sensors or comfort. Light carpets, for example, allow cars to project an arrow onto the road when turning, thus increasing traffic safety by warning pedestrians and cyclists. Infrared projectors, time-of-flight sensors, and augmented reality structures are other novel optoelectronic applications.

The common ground for all these high-end lighting solutions is that they use micro-optics, precision adhesives, and nanostructures as key technologies. Nano-imprint lithography, for example, can be used to produce lenses and structures from functional polymers, at very high production volumes and offering even further advantages compared to conventional injection molding.

The event will be held in English on November 9 (9:30 h to 15:30 h) and is aimed at the European automotive lighting community. The target group includes project managers, developers, and production engineers at suppliers and OEMs.

The virtual conference, which is also intended to provide new impetus for the development of materials and processes, consists of a keynote address and six lectures. Each presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with intense discussions on development requirements as well as market and application trends. Despite the digital format, there is still plenty of room for discussion.
