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), optomechanical design, metrology, assembly, bonding, and thin-film coating. Our company services a variety of industries: Defense & Security
, Commercial, and Medical, to name a few.
We offer prototyping to series production of components & assemblies including spheres, aspheres, domes, corner cubes, free-forms, anamorphic, diffractive, 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 it's 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.
Test & Measurement:
Need it tested before it’s delivered? Diverse Optics employs the most recognized names (like Zygo, Taylor-Hobson, and Nikon/Nexiv) in ultraprecision optical metrology to ensure the quality of your optics.
