Polymer optics offer serious advantages in terms of their light weight, low cost and high malleability. The key manufacturing techniques of injection molding or diamond turning ensure 100% repeatable levels of precision, levels difficult to achieve using more traditional glass solutions. However, while polymers with improved characteristics emerge regularly, some applications require other optical or electronic approaches. Our commitment to maximize total performance means you can depend on us, not only for the polymer optics.
Our deep experience with polymer optics affirms the links between success, collaboration and integration. These concepts are at the center of how we work. Integration leads to reducing costs while exceeding requirements. Collaboration continuously taps the wisdom of all team members, both Syntec and customer.
Process, consistently applied, is the engine that drives results:
Glass molding is a replicative process that allows the production of high precision optical components from glass without grinding or polishing. As well, glass molding can be used for rapid production of aspheric lenses. This allows our customers to save both time and cost by utilizing Syntec as a one-stop-shop for glass and polymer optics.
