Optical design and consultancy
Known for their sound advice, our team of highly skilled Technical Sales Advisers are well-versed in optical design and possess the skills to assist with optical-related queries, no matter the complexity.
Our qualified team have the capabilities to:
- Evaluate your designs tolerance & performance
- Give help and advice in developing custom optics
- Ensure your designs offer are feasible and offer great value
- Create 3D models & drawings
(All drawings are to ISO standards)
Following production, our in-house Metrology Technicians test your components to ensure they wholly comply with your specifications. Working from our state-of-the-art Metrology Laboratory, our well-informed team of Technicians guarantee your optics are on-spec with millimetre-perfect precision. This, combined with our plethora of optical knowledge, ensures that you can rest assured that your component will benefit from a seamless process; right from the manufacturing stage through to delivery.
Optical finishing and processing
All our optical components are manufactured to the highest standards possible, and to ensure we meet the requirements sought by your project, we offer a vast range of optical finishing and processing options.
The following services can be provided:
|Diamond turning||Lens polishing||Precision lapping||Precision polishing|
|Prism grinding||CNC grinding||CNC dicing||Water jet cutting|
|Edging (stock windows|
& and lenses etc)
|Glass blowing||Cutting service||Drilling||Sub-assemblies|
Our stock sheet polarisers are offered in CAB-laminated and AR-coated glass-laminated sheet options. With a wide-ranging substrate offer, standard material options include acrylic, polycarbonate and glass.
If you require assistance with lamination, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Technical Sales Team on +44 01622 859444.
Optical coatings range from the UV to visible and IR wavelengths, ranging from 185nm in the UV to over 20µm in the IR spectrum
Our Metrology Technicians have the capabilities to perform a range of reflection and transmission measurements, at any requested angle of incidence (AoI). The coatings that can be tested for R/T% values are single and multilayer coatings (both polarising and non-polarising), including broadband, V-coat, polarising, metallic and dielectric.
We stock an extensive selection of anti reflection (AR) and mirror coated custom optics, please see below:
Optical sub assembly
As well as our custom-made optical components, we also offer a mounting option, in which your optics can be applied to housings and fixtures to meet the precise needs of your specification.
Our Technical Sales Advisers are on hand should you require guidance on optical sub-assemblies.
If you require an in housing design for your system or a specified part to complete your housing assembly we can help you to find the components to meet your specification.
