SCHNEIDER’s DigiCON Dallas 2013 a success


From April 18th to 20th SCHNEIDER held its 2nd digital conference “DigiCON US” at the company’s Dallas subsidiary. More than 140 lab owners, managers and technicians from over 90 different labs throughout the US and South America came to “Discover the Innovation” at the three day event. Attendees caught a first glimpse at a whole range of new developments and innovations for surfacing, coating and finishing.

Two days packed with exciting presentations about the latest innovations and technological advancements from the pioneer and market leader in freeform technology offered an exciting glimpse into the future of lens production. Moreover attendees had the chance to learn more about the existing equipment in special process and machinery workshops as well as troubleshooting classes. The comprehensive workshop program  expanded the visitors’ know-how about SCHNEIDER equipment to the next level. A digital optimization class unveiled some secrets on how to boost lab productivity.

Special highlights were the presentation of a complete running Modulo Line - the first ever highly integrated system solution featuring self-organizing cognitive machines modules for an unprecedented level of equipment utilization and the presentation of the first ever SCHNEIDER coating solution – EBC 400. The compact electron beam coater is the perfect complement to the desk-sized digital surfacing center DSC Prolab and delivers high quality antireflective, mirror, gradient and absorption coatings.

The official program of DigiCON 2013 ended with a future outlook by Gunter Schneider that gave the audience a sneak preview of upcoming projects SCHNEIDER is working on.

The event wrapped up with some fun entertainment on Saturday when SCHNEIDER took their guests on a golf scramble and a Segway tour of historic Dallas.
