Bartenbach GmbH consists of four divisions, i.e. lighting design, research & development, lighting solutions and the Bartenbach academy. The effect light has on people is the central theme of Bartenbach’s work. In the planning of daylighting and artificial light as well as in the development of innovative lighting solutions a team of physicists, psychologists, applications and electronic specialists, mathematicians, architects and designers looks at light in all of its facets. The starting point of every conception is always the desired appearance of a space. Considering aspects of visual perception leads to a lighting concept. Man with his visual, emotional and health needs is placed at the focus of all these considerations.
As part of the network of the international knowledge community Bartenbach research & development is always at the cutting edge of research related to lighting. Continuous fundamental and applications oriented research flows directly into applications and product innovation. As partner for research and development the Bartenbach company put this experience into the service for clients. These clients across the world work in the lighting industry, are research partners and customers who want to generate additional benefits in their respective business areas.
ESCATEC offers a wide range of different manufacturing services. These include Microsystems technology encompassing design, process development, prototyping, qualification and series production. Microsystem technology is based on the creation and manipulation of micro-scale features. Combining methods from microelectronics, precision mechanics and micro-optics, it opens up completely new applications by allowing drastic miniaturisation in comparison with conventional products.
Hightech am Tiroler Lech – High End Optics Made in Tyrol
kdg. This is 30 years of experience in high precision optical injection moulding in the heart of the lighting Lechtal/Tyrol. Initially starting with CD to finally arriving with our youngest division, kdg opticomp, in the third dimension, manufacturing high precision optical components for all kind of LED applications techniques with a particular focus on the replication of micro and nanostructures on planar and curved surfaces. As kdg opticomp we don’t just offer tailor-made optics, we also serve our customers with well-established expertise in both thermoplastics and project management. And this is precisely how you should experience our offering: compact, resounding and brilliant together – simply kdg.
Our core business are definitely customised optics: from optic concept, to realisation of the prototype, to its serial production. But production-oriented optic design is only one thing. In order that you really have something to celebrate at the end of the optical design development process, the real essentials – i.e. design, tool-making, injection moulding and engineering must be perfectly coordinated from the outset by an experienced project manager. This is exactly where kdg opticomp comes in.
In short kdg opticomp doesn’t just convey a grounded expertise in high-end manufacturing. What really sets us apart is our start-up spirit and our perception of ourselves as creative innovators with the aim of continuously combining the tried-and-tested with the new.
