Nearly all custom optics ultimately work as part of an assembly, so our engineering team works closely with our customers to identify and minimize assembly-related stresses to ensure the optimum optical performance at system level. Inrad Optics has demonstrated a track record of maintaining optical performance using rigorous testing and metrology of assemblies to deliver consistent quality. From electro-optical scanners to telescopes, we specialize in the integration of metal, glass, and crystal optics into optomechanical assemblies. We operate a wide variety of assembly equipment, allowing us to offer assembly and alignment services that include:

  • Snap-together optics
  • System alignment
  • Integrated brackets, mounts, journals and bearings
  • Static and dynamic balancing
  • MIL-Spec painting
  • Bonding
  • Shock testing

Optical Design and Assembly Design

Our engineers routinely fine tune optical designs to ensure that all components can be assembled cost-effectively and without endangering optical performance.
