The 20th ‘MAFO – The Conference’ was held in Milan on February 22, 2019. More than 60 participants gathered at the NH Hotel, just outside the Mido, to enjoy an exciting day with interesting lectures and discussions. Under the motto, “Future Technologies”, 13 speakers provided their insights into which technologies will be most relevant to the optical industry in the future and how they work.
Among the topics presented were ‘Data-driven quality management in labs’, ‘Acceleration of AR coating processes’, ‘3D printing of spectacle lenses’, ‘Dip coating for photochromic lenses’ and ‘Opportunities offered by machine learning in developing progressive lens design’. These together with other fascinating topics ensured a wide-ranging program and a stimulating day for all participants.
Animated discussions, typical Italian delicacies and an exclusive cocktail reception rounded off the day. The next ‘MAFO – The Conference’ will take place in Milan on February 28, 2020.
