Benefits of Stock Optics in Custom Designs

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

From optical system design to production, engineers are demonstrating the benefits of standard commercial optics over those that are custom made. Off-the-shelf optics are proving increasingly valuable, as they reduce costs, lead times and system complexity.

STEFAAN VANDENDRIESSCHE, EDMUND OPTICS

Engineering projects involving optical systems have the same time and money constraints as other engineering projects. Just as electrical engineers learned long ago that integrating standard resistors, capacitors and switches could save money and reduce time-to-market, optical design engineers are learning that leveraging the investment already made in designing, producing and stocking standard optics can provide similar benefits. Standard off-the-shelf optics save money, eliminate lead times and reduce complexity when compared to custom optics. Working closely with an optical...Read full article
