Optical Assemblies & Manufacturing Solutions

FISBA’s design-for-manufacturing philosophy begins at early-stage development to de-risk and deliver a manufacturable solution. By building working prototypes, we can test your product to ensure optimum performance of the optical systems. Once key specifications and performance are confirmed, we further support our customers by producing high-volume quantities of the optical assemblies.

Optical Solutions That Deliver Precision Performance

In industries reliant on optical systems, precision is measured in millimeters, errors can significantly impact daily operations. Utilizing precise, high-quality components is crucial to prevent issues that could compromise device accuracy and functionality. The key to ensuring optimal product performance lies in partnering with a reputable photonics supplier.

Ensuring Quality and Performance of Optical Assemblies with Metrology & Testing

Meeting your product performance specifications is a top priority for our team. We leverage our expertise and state-of-the-art metrology and test equipment to measure the performance of individual optics, complex lens assemblies, and optical systems used in various applications. The benefits of our approach to custom metrology enable real-time assembly feedback that correlates with the tolerance analysis performed in the design stage. This can be used to validate as-built specifications that can include:

  • Measurement of aspherical and freeform surfaces with precision down to 50 nm
  • Centering measurement accuracy of < 2 µm
  • Exact evaluation of the imaging quality of our optics
  • Determination of center thickness and air gaps with 1 µm accuracy
  • Measurement of surface roughness with precision < 0.5 nm
