Umicore Builds IR Glass Facility

Umicore, the large Europe-based metals and materials group, is in the final stages of completing a new 10,000 square foot molded infrared glass lens production facility in the U.S. The factory will have a production capacity of 100,000 units and expects to start shipping product in early 2005. The chalcogenide lenses are intended as a low-cost replacement for germanium lenses in high-volume infrared applications. |
