Diverse Optics transforms optical systems from expensive, heavy, and complicated to commercially viable, lightweight and simple. We manufacture custom precision polymer optic components and assemblies. Our core processes include injection molding, single-point diamond turning
(SPDT), opto-mechanical design, metrology, assembly, bonding, and thin-film coating.
We offer prototyping to series production of components & assemblies including spheres, aspheres, domes, corner cubes, free-forms, anamorphic, diffractives, Fresnel, prisms, lens arrays, light-pipes, collimators, combiners, toroid, CPC’s, TIR, micro optics, reflective / mirror optics, parabolics, off-axis, ellipticals, cylinders, and more!
Single Point Diamond Turning (SPDT) plays a key role in most 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
Injection molding offers the greatest value when compared to other optics manufacturing processes. Nominal material cost coupled with a relatively low cost manufacturing processes offer unbeatable savings compared to traditional glass optics manufacturing.
Need a few optics assembled? Sure, we’ll do that for you too. Diverse Optics will also assemble optical elements with optical and non-optical (mechanical) parts to deliver a complete optical assembly. Our engineers are skilled at multiple types of optical and mechanical assembly and bonding
. We perform standard and UV Cure alignment and bonding of multiple optical elements, using optical adhesives from Norland and Locktite.
Need it tested before it’s delivered? Diverse Optics employs the most recognized names (like Zygo, Taylor-Hobson, and Nikon (Nexiv)) in ultra-precision optical metrology to ensure the quality of your optics.
