Diverse Optics specializes in Single Point Diamond Turning (SPDT) & Precision Injection Molding of customer polymer optics. We offer prototyping to series production of components & assemblies including spheres, aspheres, domes, corner cubes, free-forms, anamorphic, diffractive, Fresnel, prisms, lens arrays, collimators, combiners, toroid, CPC’s, TIR, micro optics, reflective / mirror optics, parabolic, off-axis, elliptical, cylinders, visors, glass-polymer hybrids, and more!
Single Point Diamond Turning (SPDT) plays a key role in nearly all of our polymer optics programs. Whether its prototyping, tooling inserts, pilot production, or some combination of the three, diamond turning is a fundamental part of our process. We diamond turn in-house some of the most challenging optical elements with complex forms and shapes.
Precision Injection Molding offers:
• High volume series production
• Integration of optical and mechanical functionality
• Consistent part-to-part repeatability
• High precision to cost ratio
• Rapid production of precision polymer optics
Compared to other optics manufacturing processes, injection molding offers the greatest value in optics manufacturing. Nominal material cost coupled with a relatively low cost manufacturing process offers unbeatable savings compared to traditional glass optics manufacturing.
Need a few optics put together? Or optics with non-optical parts? We can do that too. Our engineers are skilled at multiple types of optical and mechanical assembly and bonding. We use optical adhesives from Norland and Locktite and perform standard and UV Cure alignment and bonding of multiple optical elements. Diverse Optics will also assemble optical elements with non-optical (mechanical) parts to deliver a complete optical assembly. Need it tested before it’s delivered? Sure, we’ll do that for you too.
