QuickTurn Optics, a rapid prototyping service for custom optical assemblies and components, is now available from JML Optical Industries of Rochester, N.Y. The service allows the components to be delivered in three to four weeks. The service has been used to fabricate products ranging from a 10-element assembly to single-element lenses and mirrors in quantities from four to 25 units.

TÜV Rheinland has opened a new laboratory in Irvine, Calif., offering local manufacturers, retailers and service providers a variety of testing and certification programs. The programs include product safety, ZigBee Alliance and market access certifications for Smart Grid, medical, lighting and information technology, and electrical equipment. Corporate social responsibility audits and programs also are offered. The 5300-sq-ft office expands the company’s existing network of laboratories in the US. The international company is based in Cologne, Germany.

LightPath Technologies of Orlando, Fla., has signed an agreement with AceXon Technologies to distribute its optical products throughout Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. “Since 2004, AceXon has developed strong relationships with OEM customers in a variety of optoelectronic markets ranging from industrial to scientific to medical,” said LightPath CEO Jim Gaynor. “AceXon has a strong emphasis on laser-based applications, distributing DPSS [diode-pumped solid-state], fiber, gas lasers as well as laser diodes. Many of these lasers can be used with the optics and optical assemblies that LightPath produces, making this agreement a natural fit.”
