At OSE, our procurement team has a firm grasp of how components enhance system-level performance. We design our custom optical assemblies using the core principles of Optical Manufacturing and Assembly, resulting in high-performing systems that meet our client’s precise requirements.

What are Optical Assemblies?

Optical assemblies encompass various precision parts and products designed to ensure the proper functioning of optical systems. An optical assembly can contain numerous components and kits that are tailored to meet the needs of common optical or laser applications. For example, optical assemblies may include spherical, aspherical, or cylindrical lenses, prisms, mirrors, and optical filters.

Custom optical assemblies are used for a wide range of purposes, such as:

  • Alignment
  • Mounting
  • Focusing
  • Beam Manipulation

An optical assembly provides a more affordable alternative that requires fewer parts than traditional methods when developing a high-performing optical system.
