Optical Systems Design
For optical systems design, Syntec partners with our customers, our internal manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, and optical engineers to develop the best, most cost-effective solutions to today’s optical engineering challenges. These solutions may utilize some of the unique capabilities of plastic, such as aspherical surfaces, diffractive surfaces, and molded mechanical features that promote alignment accuracy and economical assembly.
The performance of any precision optical component, no matter how innovative the opto-mechanical or optical systems design, is limited by its accuracy. The achievable accuracy of plastic optics has proven to be one of the key advantages. At Syntec Optics, today’s state-of-the-art manufacturing and metrology equipment are combined with our staff’s depth of experience and expertise to realize sub-micron accuracy and repeatability in plastic on a routine basis. There are few limits to what plastic optics can do. The use of optical quality molded plastic rapidly expands into all the arenas frequently thought of as the exclusive domain of glass optics.
Examples of application areas are:
