GS Plastic Optics manufacturing engineers specialize in bringing custom solutions and unique tooling concepts to manufacturing challenges. At the onset of any program, we will assign a Project Management team that will be responsible for regular and accurate communications with you, our client.
Single point diamond turned (SPDT) prototypes allow you to validate your optical design by rapidly creating a polymer optic for system testing. We also offer quick and economical delivery options for short-run production volumes.
Injection molding is a highly efficient method of reproducing optics with complex surface geometries. The electric injection molding machines on our production floor are designed to produce optics that can employ integrated mounting features onto one platform. As a result, these optics can be molded in varying volume requirements with a very high degree of part-to-part repeatability.
GS Plastic Optics can coat your custom polymer optics using physical vapor deposition techniques, similar to glass. It is possible to apply dielectric coatings such as broadband AR, V-coatings, and individual band pass coatings. Moreover, reflective coatings can be applied to polymer substrates; coatings such as enhanced or protected gold, aluminum, and silver are routinely applied.
GS Plastic Optics provides complete opto-mechanical assembly and packaging services. The manufacturing engineers specialize in bringing custom solutions and unique tooling concepts to manufacturing challenges. Assembly work can be done in line with the molding presses or in the class 10,000 clean room as required.
Having proper metrology is an absolute requirement to control performance and quality when producing optics, without it there is no reasonable way to assess performance. We have all of the advanced equipment needed in-house, and continue to invest in the latest technology, to enhance the reliability and serviceability of our lab, and protect our clients against downtime of their projects.
