Lightweight construction

On the way up

In almost all industrial sectors intelligent lightweight construction systems are considered a key technology that carries with it competitive and cost advantages.

Lightweight construction technologies are a central element of WILD‘s Technology Roadmap and are used, for instance, in vibration-sensitive optomechatronic systems. Saving weight while increasing rigidity, however, is also a core criterion in the manufacturing of medical technology products such as prosthetic limbs. Apart from the requirement to save material during manufacturing and to save energy while moving them, the dynamic properties of prosthetic limbs are also becoming increasingly important.

Light is the trend. Lightweight construction, especially in combination with additive manufacturing, creates structures and designs that would have been unthinkable with conventional construction approaches. One example is a system co-developed by WILD, which allows the use of more effective lasers in eye surgery. Since these lasers work with very high pulse repetition frequencies, surgery time is significantly reduced, but the ablation of the corneal tissue leads to the formation of a laser aerosol plume consisting of solid fragments, liquid drops, and gases, which impairs surgery.

In cooperation with its customer, WILD has developed a unique suction and filter assembly that removes this aerosol plume. The assembly is directly integrated in the laser system; using a positioning unit, it is placed in the eye of the patient without contact or vibration shortly before surgery and then gives clearance for the laser process to begin. This solution is made possible by a multi-material casing design with multifunctional parts. The stable and biocompatible casing provides support and also integrates the electronic systems, the suction and cable channels, the mounting for lighting elements and the thermal management.

Super small, super smart

Micro Electro Mechanical Systems, or MEMS, are extremely miniaturised systems that combine electronic and mechanical components. Thanks to MEMS, it is also possible to implement the functions of optomechatronic systems in a single component.

Though tiny, they are more versatile, intelligent and powerful: MEMS systems have already revolutionized several products and brought forth ground-breaking innovations. Thanks to their small size, higher efficiency and multifunctionality at lower costs, they have become the standard solution for smartphones and tablets. In medical technology they also offer the potential to expand or replace conventional systems. In addition, since connectors and cables are no longer required and there is virtually no mechanical wear and tear, they are usually more reliable than conventional systems.

Smart analysis system. Among other things WILD builds MEMS in a grating spectrometer used in pharmacies. The ingredients used to mix medicines usually look identical and therefore, pharmacists are obliged to control the raw materials for a recipe to rule out any mistakes. So far, this analysis has been very time-consuming and cost-intensive. The Apo-Ident device now allows pharmacists to carry out a medication identity check in just a few seconds. The centerpiece of this system, a scanning grating spectrometer, is made by WILD. Compared to conventional spectrometers it can identify more chemical compounds and mixtures and determine the concentrations of their ingredients at a lower investment cost. Its reference database contains more than 1,100 raw materials, ranging from powders to ointments to liquids. As an affordable OEM component, this compact system also opens completely new possibilities in process and quality control for the food, plastics, recycling and chemical industries.

Laser technology

A bright future

Lasers have long become an established factor in manufacturing, medicine, and in various areas of everyday life. In future, their areas of application will expand dramatically.

Although laser technology is the latest topic added to the Technology Roadmap, WILD already has 25 years of experience in this area, and is now pressing ahead with it. „For many of our customers, lasers are the key topic par excellence. We are convinced that a lot of progress and, accordingly, several new applications are possible in this area“, stresses Johannes Macher, Optics Designer and Development Project Manager.

WILD is best positioned to emerge as a strategic partner for laser technology, since the company possesses know-how in all the processes required – from optics design and precision manufacturing to ultra fine cleaning and clean room assembly.

The range of services it provides is accordingly broad. From laser equipment to laser sources, WILD guarantees highest manufacturing precision. This also applies to a Smart Beam DPSS (diode-pumped solid-state) laser. It constitutes the centrepiece of a mass spectrometer, which laboratory workers use to collect and analyse data from minute sample quantities. In practice, it emits short laser flashes onto biological samples, causing these to evaporate and ionize. The ions are accelerated in an electric field – large ones less than the small ones – so that one can determine the molecular mass very precisely based on the flight time to a given target. A special area of application is the analysis of tissue sections, helping to illustrate the distribution of substances in two dimensions. As a result of the highly focused laser beam, the achievable resolution is 20μm, which corresponds to the size of a single human cell.

Free form optics

More freedom for form and function

Free form optics are customized, high-performance optics which combine several optical functions in a single component. They are extremely precise, lightweight, small, and offer completely new functionalities.

As a rule, optical assemblies or beam-guiding systems are based on a sophisticated system of precisely coordinated mirrors, lenses, and prisms. In the case of free form optics,h owever, ideally a single component will suffice. In optical applications, they enjoy a special status and are primarily used where several optical-functional components or surfaces must be combined due to limited space. Due to their low weight and compact design, free form optics can be installed where very little room is available. In addition, their surfaces can be designed in any desired shape, allowing for the manufacturing of particularly flexible optical systems.

Hybrid lens LED light source. Free form optics are also used in a hybrid lens of an LED light source built by Photonic, a company of the WILD Group. This hybrid lens forms part of a lighting system in which several LED light sources are focused on a fiber optic output. Were these individual LEDs to be fitted with anancillary lens each, it would result in a very large diameter light source. By using its own free form optics hybrid lens, WILD achieved a significantly more compact design, which presents a decisive advantage for applications in microscopy or industrial endoscopy.

High precision


In mechanical manufacturing, precision tolerances of a thousandth of a millimetre are no longer the exception. WILD is facing up to this challenge and is already working with tolerance requirements of +/- 0.002 mm.

Demand for components with micron measured tolerances is rising steadily. At WILD, the highest tolerance requirements for mechanical parts are currently at +/- 0.005 mm. „We realize, however, that customers want to manufacture with even greater precision in the future. Tolerance requirements are aiming toward +/- 0.002 mm, which corresponds to the size of a bacterium“, explains Head of Mechanical Production Robert Lackner. In addition to many years of experience in tool and components manufacturing, this requires a reliable positioning of the CNC machine spindle with more than twice the precision than previously.

Precise requirements. High-precision parts manufactured with a repeating accuracy of thousandths of a millimetre are used, for instance, in optical frames, components in analytics or prosthetics, or in special tools for semiconductor technology to apply adhesives in layers of 10 to 15 micrometres. WILD manages these precision tasks thanks to specially trained staff, state-of-the-art CNC machines, and an air-conditioned measurement room equipped with two automated 3D measuring machines. In addition, WILD maintains a network that includes special machine manufacturers.

Investment in high-precision lathe. To further optimise the process of high-precision manufacturing and to systematically rule outsize fluctuations, WILD has invested in a state of-the-art production lathe. With a concentricity of < 0.001 mm for the main spindle, the company guarantees the lathing of very tight tolerances and precise surfaces in the future.
