Designing Optical Systems

We can suggest possible solutions within just three days!

Optical design combines science, creativity and knowledge of technology and physics. By applying our specialist and design competence, we develop customized optical systems. Our work is based on internationally standardized design methods, and we take into consideration feasibility in production and the use of standard parts. Software developed in-house is used for the simulation and optimization of optical systems.

  • Do You Have an Idea?

    You are looking for a partner with whom you can implement it?

    • We can help with the exact definition of tasks
    • We come up with solutions
    • We discuss alternative approaches
    • We calculate costs and delivery times as basic factors for decision-making
    • We simulate the optical functionality of the systems
    • We qualify drafts and compile production documents
    • We present you with solutions just 3 days after the initial kick-off meeting


  • Development Steps

    1. Conception Stage

    • Initial assessment within three days
    • Determination of specifications and drafts
    • Cost estimate for main development phases


    2. Main Development Phase: Optical Design

    • Creation of an optical design configured for manufacturing technology
    • Tolerance design with alignment and test strategy
    • Simulations meeting the specification (reflections, temperature effects)


    3. Main Development Phase: Construction

    • Interface description
    • Modeling in Pro/Engineer agreed on with the production areas
    • Complete set of drawings approved by all production areas


    4. Prototype Phase

    • Testing and alignment equipment
    • Approval for volume production
  • Tools in Development
