Microstructures from plastics

CDA is a leading manufacturer of complex microstructures from plastic material. In the last few years CDA has modified the traditional duplication techniques so far that a proprietary technique has grown out of it for the successful serial production of micro-optical components. CDA’s success in the various fields of microstructural applications developing rapidly has been achieved by pooling of core competences in the area of volume production of precision microstructures from polymer, the comprehensive engineering know-how and flexibility in production.

CDA µFUNCTIONAL PRODUCTS

CDA Microfunktional Solutions Micro-Optik

MICRO-OPTIC

Optical encoders are components that contain alternatively and periodically unstructured subareas followed by scattering subareas and thus allow a relative encoding of the position.
Diffusors are specifically designed for the relevant applications and scatters the light in the form needed.   
Fresnel lenses - The design of the Fresnel lens ensures a large aperture and short focal length without the mass and volume of materials required for a conventional lens design.
Diffractive optical elements DOE – Light of punctiform sources can be diffracted at regular gratings and microstructures in such a way that almost any pattern can be created.

MICROFLUIDICS

Lab-on-Chip – Microfluidics deals with handling small amounts of fluids.
µPesi - The µPESI Diagnose Disc with printed conductive tracks and 60 individual chips on a surface makes mass screening possible.
Microstructured slides - They are a new CDA product for the innovative use in research.

OUR SERVICES

 

It is CDA’s objective to organize the prototyping as smoothly as possible. Our team provides assistance in finding the optimal design for your application.

Our capabilities for a swift development of prototypes are focussed on significant cost cutting and minimal lead times. The proprietary technique makes it possible to embed 4" and 6"masters in the production chain and thus use the existing silicon masters.

To ensure the quality of your samples, we do the prototyping on the same machines as the serial production.    

 

Sometimes it is useful to reduce transport times and costs. To this end CDA offers basic assembly as part of the back-end processes.

Let us know if you are interested. To make sure that your product arrives safely at the place of destination, we provide a range of packaging options for any need. 

 

We have got plenty of space.

For example, for 9,000 pallets of your products. We take charge of storage and dispatch of goods. Our high-bay warehouse has a capacity of 9,000 storage locations. Our warehouse management system is fully computerized so that we can meet your logistic and sales needs in a flexible manner. 

Flexible and customized shipping.

In Germany the goods are usually dispatched within 24 hours. If need be, we can also deliver goods to OEMs worldwide. We are prepared to meet your needs whether these are special requests in terms of shipping or transport of individual products. At our logistics centre your products are made ready for dispatch in a fast and reliable manner.   

OUR TECHNOLOGY

CDA sees itself as a fully integrated manufacturer of your products. It means from the electronic processing of your product/design data, mould making and injection moulding through to finishing and assembly of individual components we have got suitable machinery. It reduces interfaces and protects your intellectual property in an optimal manner. Should it happen that we are not in the possession in-house of the necessary manufacturing technology, we will define the production strategy in cooperation with you.

The result should be the product you require. Our redundant machinery ensures the necessary supply reliability as regards serial and mass production at all times. 

Datenhandling

Your products frequently originates from a drawing or is expressed by functional equations. They are then processed further electronically and are available as CAD file or similar. No matter how you supply your ideas, we will process them so that the latest version is always available and can be integrated into our production process.
