The Accumold marketing team has set its sight on the largest international optical sciences and technology meeting in North America — the SPIE Optics + Photonics Conference and Exhibition that runs from Aug. 28 to Sept. 1 in San Diego, Calif.

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The not-for-profit organization advances emerging technologies through interdisciplinary information exchange, continuing education, publications, patent precedent, and career and professional growth.

“It’s no secret that SPIE has more than 264,000 constituents in roughly 165 countries. You won’t find anyone with more of a reach in the discipline of light-based technologies,” Accumold Vice President of Marketing and Customer Strategy Aaron Johnson said. “SPIE sponsors and organizes a couple dozen major technical forums, exhibitions and education programs each year in North America, Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific. We’ve found the two California events — the first in San Francisco in February and this one in late August — are real assets that connect us with the sharp minds and new technologies that are moving the market forward. Everyone at the company is excited about the SPIE line-up.”

That line-up includes programs on nanoengineering; nanoscience; quantum science; advanced metrology; atmospheric and space optical systems; optical design and systems engineering; photonic devices and applications; remote sensing; signal, image, and data processing; x-ray, gamma-ray, and particle technologies; organic photonics and electronics; and optics and photonics for sustainable energy.

Since its inception in 1985, Accumold has produced super-micro, ultra-precision, plastic injection-molded parts that are critical components of the medical, micro-electronics and micro-optics industries. They can be found in micro-electronics, cell phones, telecommunications, surgical tools, hearing aids, medical devices, antennas, connectors and more. To produce those parts, Accumold builds specialized molding machines engineered to handle volumes from prototypes to millions per year while maintaining consistent, precise tolerances that are unique in the industry.
