We are your partner for the development and production of customized optical systems from UV to IR. With many years of experience in optical design and in-house optics manufacturing & metrology, we work with you to propose intelligent, innovative and economical solutions for your product concepts.
Our optical systems are customized lenses for applications where catalog offerings are not up to the task. These can include unusual environmental conditions, high-resolution imaging, unique spectral requirements (UV to NIR). Additionally, we integrate lenses, prisms and micro-optical components, light sources and detectors into complex assemblies for integration into customer-specific products, e.g. semiconductor processing, aerospace/defense and machine vision.
Our engineers develop solutions for requirements that cannot be implemented with off-the-shelf optics. And no project is too small or great for consideration.
We offer you our many years of experience in project management, a structured development process and close cooperation to ensure your success.
From design to series production
Whether you have only a product idea, a problem to overcome, or wish to contract for manufacturing a finished optical design − we can meet your needs at any state of project readiness to develop and manufacture your solution from concept to serial production.
Our in-house optics production, including coating, is the foundation for rapid implementation of developed products from concept to production. Our developers, designers and production technologists work closely together from the start to ensure we offer you manufacturable and economical solutions.
R&D support and product lifecycle management
After successful development and initiation of production, we support you throughout the entire product lifecycle. We provide support for further product developments or necessary technical changes while managing complex supply chains.
Processes & Technologies
We control all aspects of the development and manufacturing processes.
Development is offered as a multi-stage process with mutally-agreed milestones, design reviews, sharing of development results and transparent communication until prototypes are approved and released.
Our in-house production enables a smooth and quick start of serial production.
Based on your project goals or problem description, we analyze the basic feasibility and define necessary and reasonable specifications in collaboration with you. In doing so, we carefully consider the viability and budget constraints from the very beginning.
Milestone: Study preparation with preliminary optics design · Compliance matrix specifications · Proposal for necessary development steps · Cost estimates
We create the optical design guided by the specified requirements of your project. By combining practical materials and optimized geometries, we lay the foundation for efficient and stable manufacturing and test processes. Our many years of experience of in-house optics production are invaluable in this respect.
Milestone: Released optical design · layer design
Based on the results of the optical design and the requirements of your application, we define suitable assembly technologies and translate them into an appropriate opto-mechanical design.
Milestone: Released set of drawings for prototype production
From the set of mechnical drawings, we create manufacturing documents, test plans, design and produce tooling, procure materials and manufacture components. Finally, system assembly, testing and documentation commences.
Milestone: Delivery of sample units for testing and approval by the customer.
After successful qualification of the initial samples, we define and fix the logistics and production processes for building follow-on units. We work with you to find establish the optimum procurement plan – from order-to-order lot production to long-term blanket agreements with material stocking and flexible call-offs.
Result: Quality and on-time serial deliveries
