Optical Engineering Services From Shanghai Optics
The optical engineering services provided by Shanghai Optics is our way of making more than 55 years of experience in optical engineering, opto mechanical engineering, product development and design accessible to you and your team.
Bringing a new design from the initial exploratory phase of proof of concept to completion requires multiple steps with thorough analysis at each stage, from the initial feasibility exploration (proof of concept) and research of technical requirements through cost analysis and mechanical design to rapid prototyping and, finally, the development of the optical product. Our team is available to join you at any stage in the process. Whether you are designing a medical/bio research device or planning volume OEM production of consumer products, you will find our engineering services to be an invaluable resource for your product/application development.
Our expert engineering team has many years of manufacturing experience and will help our customers optimize their optical system with in-depth DFM input (Design for Manufacturing). Process includes material selection and geometric dimensioning and tolerance analysis (GD&T).
Metrology Instruments and Services
We understand that the rigorous testing needed for precise optical functions is beyond the capability of all but the most specialized firms, and we provide both standard and custom metrology services to our clients. Our state of the art equipment allows us to perform the most precise measurements and fine-tuning, and our experienced engineers are able to provide any measurement analytics that may be needed.
Shanghai Optics invests significantly in its manufacturing facility and metrology equipment in order to meet the quality demands of our customer’s applications. Some of the in-house inspection equipment that we use are:
• Zygo Verifire Interferometer (measures surface accuracy of plano- or spherical surfaces)
Troubleshooting and Ongoing Support
Our capabilities include not only design services and testing/measurement, but also troubleshooting existing optical systems and providing continuous support for our products throughout their time of use. Our engineers boast a wide range of specialties and diverse skillsets, allowing them to problem solve effectively across disciplines and think outside the box when challenges are faced.
Scope of Services
Shanghai Optics engineering services include design prototyping, systems design and optical mechanical design. We have experience in both systems architecture and electrical systems. Our services extend to both software and firmware, and we can work with you to prepare product documentation and instructions for fixturing and use of equipment.
