About This Webinar
This webinar will address the items to consider when designing and fabricating a custom lens for any given system. Presenter Stuart Singer, chief executive officer at Schneider Optics Inc., will review the basic parameters and specifications required to analyze a possible commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) lens solution, a modified COTS lens solution, or lens solutions that are fully modified to meet your requirements. He will review basic optics principles and provide practical guidance on optical specification, and will address custom lens design fabrication tolerances with regard to cost and feasibility for a single application as well as serial mass production. You will learn how to convey your requirements to an optical design/fabrication company to obtain meaningful quotes and a full understanding of your options.
