Resolve Optics Boosts Optical Assembly Facility

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Lens developer Resolve Optics Ltd. has purchased a fully automated modulation transfer function (MTF) and distortion test center, as well as a precision lens system centering station, for its U.K. optical assembly facility.

This equipment is funded in part by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Big Camera Project and will help Resolve Optics enhance the manufacture of their optical systems.

“Due to the level of testing and detailed data increasingly required by OEM customers, it was necessary to look at ways to automate and improve assembly and testing procedures,” said Peter Chamberlain, production manager at Resolve Optics. “The new precision lens system centering station will enable each element to be precisely centered during assembly. This increases the accuracy of the assembly and reduces distortion within the system.”

“[The] modulation transfer function measurement test is an important aid to objectively evaluate the performance of optical systems,” Chamberlain said. “Not only does the MTF provide us with a means of expressing the imaging quality of optical systems objectively and quantitatively, but [it] also provides the facility to accurately measure and map distortion.”

Resolve Optics is a developer and manufacturer of lenses and lens systems.
