At CIOE, one of the world’s largest exhibitions in the optoelectronic industry, Alps Electric will be exhibiting the latest technologies in lenses for optical communications and the products, which have more than a 25-year history in the market in the form of optic fiber components, optical drives and pickups in CDs, and lenses for submarine cables.

Under the circumstances where the volume of information is increasing because of the use of IoT and AI and thus downsizing of data center devices is wanted, the narrow aspherical glass lens, which we are introducing as a solution for data centers, boasts a width of only 0.6 mm even with a chucking area. The lens achieves high efficiency in a light coupling through the optical design and microfabrication technologies that Alps has been developing for a number of years and therefore contributes to the speeding up of data communications.

The Alps booth will also propose, from our lineups for the on-board product market, the latest technologies designed to meet future demand, including aspherical glass lenses integral with lens tubes for heads-up displays (HUDs) and hybrid lenses for LIDAR systems that are used in self-driving cars.

Outline of the exhibition

Zone: International Exhibition Zone, 9th building of the Precision Optics, Lens & Camera Module Expo
Booths: 9M14 and 15

Products to be exhibited

• Narrow aspherical glass lenses
• Aspherical glass lenses integral with lens tubes
• Hybrid lenses
... and more

History and Achievement of Alps Electric in the Optical Communications Field

Founded in Tokyo in 1948, Alps Electric developed the first aspherical glass lens as a core component for the self-developed CD pickup unit in 1985. Since then, it has been improving its optical design and manufacturing technologies and developed one of the world’s smallest aspherical glass lens for optical communications in 1990. Some types were employed for use in submarine cables that require high reliability, and thus the company acquired a large share of the market at that time. The company satisfies wide-ranging market needs with its mass production system of stable quality using molding techniques that have been cultivated since its foundation and a variety of products.

Efforts of Alps Electric in the Chinese Market

In 1984, Alps Electric started exporting plants for producing color TV components for the launch of its business in China. Based on its philosophy “Rooted in the local community and contribute to local industry,” the company has six manufacturing bases, three development bases, and seven sales offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian, Shenzhen, and so on.

Biosimilars could facilitate early access to life changing biological treatments for patients says Celltrion Healthcare21.5.2018 11:27Pressemelding

At the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) 23rd Annual International Meeting in Baltimore, Celltrion Healthcare today advocated for healthcare systems to introduce biologics earlier in a patient’s treatment regimen in order to improve clinical outcomes. Several studies show that the early introduction of biologics can bring greater clinical benefit to patients.1,2,3,4,5,6 However, only a limited number of patients have access to biological treatment due to the high-cost of biologics and current reimbursement policies determined by pharmacoeconomic evaluations. Since the introduction of biosimilars, the overall cost of biological treatments has reduced in Europe, allowing an increased number of patients to access this important treatment option earlier in their course of treatment.7 Professor Jørgen Jahnsen said, “For the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, biological treatments are proven to be the most efficacious medical therapy and their ea
