Optical Assembly Services
Assembly of optical components and materials
Vyoptics offers an assembly service on all optical components we supply as well as on customer-supplied materials and components. We can supply the complete product, source on your behalf or set up a supply chain with your supplier. Prototype and one-off projects are undertaken as well as batch and low volume production runs. Most assembly work production is bench-based and ranges from simple labelling/identification of products to complex bonding of several glass components. Our clean room is filtered and equipped with lamiflow booths, from which we can also supply dust-free packaged components.
Our lapping services include all optical materials and glasses, as well as metals, alloys, alumina and ferrites. Using double-sided planetary machines, we focus on components when both sides need lapping to precision tolerances. Surfaces are lapped simultaneously whilst held in carriers, removing the need for fixing or clamping, and ensuring a stress free lapping process for the components without thermal distortion. Our lapping department handles 1 off to 1,000’s of components a day. In many optical applications where surfaces need diffusing, we can lap one or both sides to a stated finish from 5 microns to 100 microns. Find out more on our diffusers page.
