Syntec Optics is one of few facilities worldwide that specializes in diamond turning, mold manufacturing, and design for manufacturability. In comparison to our competitors, we offer Single Point Diamond Turning for components such as polymer prisms, freeforms, diffractives, spheres & aspheres and mirrors while our patented High Refraction Diamond Turning is utilized to cut more challenging materials. Whether we are creating a prototype or creating custom molds for automated molding equipment, our customers can count on repeatable results to sub-micron levels. At our all-in-one facility, we have a fully equipped metrology lab, State-of-the-art temp./humidity controlled environment that maintains even the tightest tolerances, a full tool room with milling, grinding, plano polishing and EDM capabilities, and both wire and die sink. This allows us to design and build custom diamond turning optics and proprietary reverse engineering of mold inserts to molded parts.
Freeform optics can offer you numerous advantages for complex beam shaping. We are able to direct diamond turn freeform surfaces in our diamond turning lab for prototypes as well as mold inserts for higher volume production while meeting challenging requirements for optical form, mid-spatial frequencies, and surface roughness.
Microlens arrays are utilized in a variety of applications such as displays, machine vision, optical computing, 3D imaging, astronomy, micro-machining, diode laser collimation, laser-fiber coupling, optical switching, multiplexing and beam bundling for medical instruments, optosensorics, telecommunications, laser optics, measurement systems and sensors. These applications require high efficiency and non-gaussian uniformity. Refractive microlenses are useful alternatives for applications demanding miniaturization and reduced costs of alignment packaging. We provide microlens arrays in two forms: orthogonal or hexagonal arrangements. Advantages of microlens arrays designed and manufactured by Syntec Optics include long term stability, monolithic structure, increased transmission, efficient transformation and homogenization and beam shaping.
