Visible/UV Optics

For classic precision optics and custom shapes or configurations, we create spherical and plano optical components in essentially every glass type. We specialize in fabricating precision optical components for both rapid prototyping and production applications, with grinding and polishing capabilities for precision lenses (flat and spherical), mirrors, prisms, windows and metal optics. Whatever the procedure or end use, our precision optics are always on time and on budget.

Engineers, scientists and procurement and purchasing personnel from industrial, medical, research, laser, aerospace, defense and consumer industries comprise our extensive list of successful precision optics customers.
