VY Optics offers finishing and processing of glasses, optical components assembly and precision cutting services on all optical components.
VY Optical have the technology and experience to add
something more than just the component. In our testing and calibration department, we
can test a filter for transmission using our spectrophotometer or using our
interferometer to check a window for flatness. This is only achieved with the in house
optical production and test facilities VY Optical can offer to its customers.
An express service is provided when times are short to customization of stock products to custom made sizes. The micro dicing department can cut wafers and glasses up to 300mm diameter and an extensive range of optical polishing and grinding machines can process customer's components, substrates or materials.
Experienced in the selection of the most suitable adhesive for glass to metal assembly, in our clean room we typically mount and bond windows and filters into mounts and housings.
VY Optical optical services are widely used throughout the optical industry and our facility can offer many optical engineering and services.
VY Optics 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.
Polishing & Lapping
VY Optics can accommodate a range of specialist precision glass polishing and lapping requirements, large or small. We offer the latest technologies in double-sided planetary polishing, using 3-way drive machines producing high volume rates. If a laser-quality finish is required, our single-sided machines can polish up to lambda 10 flatness. We can also polish the edges of windows and squares. Windows, plates and substrates are routinely processed in batch runs at competitive rates.
& Cutting Services
VY Optics offers glass and optical machining services on customer materials and components. Jobs can range from simple tasks such as cutting a piece of float glass in half to more complex tasks such as cylindrically grinding quartz rods to tolerances of 0.01mm.We can undertake precision grinding and cutting of one-off custom or stock optical components to achieve specific dimensions, as well as contract production.Contract work is undertaken to customer-supplied components and materials.For precise micro dicing see our precision dicing services.
VY Optics offers precision glass dicing services and for customer-supplied materials, substrates and components. Our cutting technology incorporates vision alignment systems and high-resolution closed loop linear positioning encoders.We dice to high tolerances and offer an express service to the micro electronics and optical industry. Our equipment includes a Loadpoint NanoAce 3300 and a MicroAce machine.
VY Optical coating service provides a broad range of coating options that are applied to our range of optical components and glasses. The range of coatings available includes the UV to IR region. Anti reflection coatings are used to improve the transmission of the transmitted light and improve the contrast of the image. An uncoated glass surface has surface reflection of approximately 4% per surface, AR coating will reduce this to as low as 0.20%.
