SABIC’s ULTEM resin enables complex optical carrier design for Blickfeld's first smart LiDAR

Blickfeld Qb2, the first compact smart LiDAR to capture AND process 3D data.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, has announced that its ULTEM™ resin has helped Blickfeld, a leading innovator in LiDAR technology, develop their recently launched Qb2 device. Blickfeld’s new Qb2 is the first smart LiDAR sensor that can both capture and process 3D data on a single device. LiDAR (light detection and ranging) is an optical sensing technique that uses lasers to produce highly accurate 3-dimensional measurements of any environment or object. The highly complex and miniaturized optical carrier required for this new device is molded in ULTEM resin. The choice of ULTEM resin helped to reduce total system cost with a lower material cost combined with easier and faster production scale up compared to aluminum.
