IRD Glass Technical Industrial GlassIRD Glass is an accomplished manufacturer of a wide variety of flat optics, including windows, reticles, filters, mirrors, optical wedges, and patterned coatings. These flat optics are used in any number of industries, including the medical field, aerospace, defense, machine vision and homeland security. Also available are manufactured cylindrical lenses in a multitude of shapes and sizes: rod lenses, plano-convex lenses, plano-concave lenses, bi-convex lenses and others, in radii less than 4mm to those greater than 125mm.

If precision is part of your requirements, IRD should be your first stop when it comes to custom slides, probe tips, nozzles and cutting blades. IRD manufactures a variety of custom glass and ceramic components for the medical industry.

IRD has the equipment in-house to address most all coating requirements. An evaporation chamber, sputtering chamber and a vacuum chamber are all available for the custom coating of optical components.

From the basic 90° right-angle prism to challenging prism assemblies, IRD glass has the experience and talent to fabricate exactly to your needs. Prisms with angular tolerances tighter than 3 arc-minutes can be accompanied with NIST-traceable certificates accurate to within 5 arc-seconds for the optical angle or angle of deviation. Anti-Reflective, Mirror, band pass and other thin-film coatings are also custom-applied on a daily basis. Light wedges, corner cubes, rhomboid prisms, wedge prisms, penta prisms, dove prisms, roof prisms and many other variations are all finished to exacting specifications.

IRD Glass offers a number of value-added services including optical assembly, metrology, grinding, lapping, polishing, and optical coatings, as well as general guidance as the design kinks are buffed out.

Extremely precise spherical optics in sizes ranging from micro-optic lenses, to lenses 6” + in diameter are custom manufactured for you. Spherical, aspherical and achromats are all able to be created per your drawings.

IRD Glass specializes in technical and industrial glass components. These precision components include pedestals and precision tubes for the sensor industry, ring-laser gyro blocks for the defense and aerospace industry and precision tooling and fixturing for the OEM manufacturing industries.
