Company Profiles

ColVisTec AG, BerlinCompany

ColVisTec AG - founded in 2009 in Berlin-Adlershof - develops, manufactures and markets: process monitoring systems as Inline Technology, based on high-resolution spectrophotometers, i.e. inline color measurement.
Whoever wishes to record the stability of a process and react to it immediately - receives the right technology from us. Today, samples are usually taken from the production line and tested in a laboratory in order to have an indication whether or not the process is still stable. This measurement procedure is repeated approximately every 2-3 hours. Thus the process runs “blindly” for 2-3 hours. Our technology, however, allows a measurement every 10 seconds directly within the process (i.e. inside the material): without sampling, without disturbing the process, without delays, and continuously. Thereby waste and contamination are avoided. Our probes allow measurements directly in the processing on materials in:

  • liquid (coatings, paints, inks, drinks or other food),
  • paste-like (cosmetics, food, other mixtures, etc.),
  • powdery (pharmaceuticals, building materials, pigments, food, etc.) and
  • molten form (polymers in the extruder, food processing, etc.)

With specific probes (sapphire lens and optical fiber) adapted to the respective processes – materials (opaque to transparent) can be used at operating temperatures up to 400 ° C and up to 345 bar. Thus, the inline color measurement is possible, for example, directly in an extruder. Application areas of our inline technology include: plastics processing in the extruder, powder coating, coatings and paints, food, chemical reaction processes (clear - turbid - colored) etc.
The ColVisTec team consists of experienced engineers and scientists. We have been active in the various areas of spectrophotometry, optical and process and production control for many years and have a total of more than 50 years of experience in spectrophotometry and process applications.

Dopa Entwicklungsgesellschaft für…, BerlinCompany, Laser Technology, Lighting Technology, Photonics and Quantum Technologies for Communication and Sensors, Optical Analytics, Microelectronic and Mikrosystems Technology

We Are dopa
dopa – for now 25 years we are your competent and internationally established partner for the development and production of diamond tools , the design of whole production processes and a specialized contract manufacturer for high end flat optics made out of different materials like optical glass, sapphire, ceramic, fused silica etc.
At this we have specialized us on the processing of optical glass, special ceramics and crystals. Our tools distinguish themselves by the fact that they produce also at high stock removal rates very fine, homogenous and scratch free surfaces, which have nearly no sub surface damage. This leads in the following manufacturing steps to a decrease of generally minimum 35 % of your polishing time. Furthermore it raises your products quality and stabilizes remarkably your processes. With their low wear our tools enable you moreover to produce very flat parts.
We own in our Berlin test laboratory most different grinding and polishing machines plus a wide range of measurement instruments. On those machines, that depict the state of the art technology in multiple industries, we run machining trials under real production conditions and optimize the tools and processes already here so far, that they can be implemented in our customer’s production as a complete system.
Improving existing technologies or visualizing whole technology changes as for example from lapping with loose abrasive to fine grinding or from polishing with diamond slurry to super fine grinding can be shown here while considering all economical and technological aspects. Using this our customers can cut down the long, hard and cost intensive implementation of new technologies at their end to a minimum or save it fully. Furthermore they are able to react much faster to changing market needs while not interrupting their running production. To push your borders we gladly assist you with our funded knowledge in choosing and making the right tools for your application.
We are developing efficiency. Please contact us!
