Customization to Meet Specific Requirements
High-Precision Optics Production
Based on the computer-calculated lens design and the technical capabilities of the production facilities, LASER COMPONENTS’ engineers work closely with the customer to develop a design that achieves the desired beam properties and can be manufactured cost effectively.
The grinding and polishing machines are designed for substrates with diameters from 12.7 mm to 55 mm. In contrast to industrial mass production, each substrate blank is individually clamped in the grinding machine, which is adjusted separately for each lens type. This is followed by a computer-assisted fine polishing process in which even the smallest irregularities can be individually reworked. The result is an optimally shaped lens with a maximum deviation of λ/10. Accuracies of up to λ/20 are also possible upon request.
Several processes are available for coating optics. They offer different possibilities regarding layer tension, laser damage threshold, combinability, and complexity of the layer design. The manufacturer selects the best process together with the customer. The production process ends with an additional quality control; as a result, all surface imperfections in the substrate and coating are recorded and evaluated by experienced specialists.
“Of course, there are companies in the Far East that manufacture off-the-shelf optical products in large quantities,” explains René Sattler, product engineer for laser optics at LASER COMPONENTS. “Such mass-produced goods of average quality do not correspond to our company philosophy. We dedicate our full attention to each individual optic. Our customers can, therefore, be sure that each piece exactly meets the specifications agreed upon.”
