Syntec Optics has developed a useful and unparalleled advantage in the whole field of optics on two fronts for any lens material (glass, plastics, fused silica, or crystals):
- Vertical Integration (VI): We have in-house optics manufacturing from design, optics/mechanical manufacturing, coating, diamond turning – nanomachining, tooling, and metrology, to module assembly and testing (in-line/end-of-line) for a wide range of optics materials all in one location, and:
- Design for Manufacturability (DFM): Product development challenges can be overcome by applying the above deep-expertise and prototyping-ability in manufacturing to simultaneously, seamlessly, and continually improve optics designs. Mid-spatial-frequency (MSF) errors are an important DFM consideration for lens systems. Our engineering team works one-on-one with customers to overcome challenges with DFM.
Our unique advantage of VI and DFM offers more benefits to our customers, including intricate manufacturing (for complexly interrelating parts), rapid prototyping, scalability, and most importantly, a path to continually reduced size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).
