In-house Precision Optics Molding


Building on the legacy of US Precision Lens (a pioneer in plastic optics molding), Greenlight Optics brings together decades of experience and advanced equipment to mold precision plastic optics in-house.

Precision injection molded plastic optics requires special knowledge and capability.  Due to tight tolerances and often extreme mold processing conditions, the injection mold designs and fabrication techniques require special knowledge and skills.  The injection molding equipment should have advanced control capability and care must be taken to ensure cleanliness.  The molding process parameters (temperatures, pressures, and speeds) are unique to precision optics molding and these processing parameters are generally a closely guarded trade secret.  Greenlight’s molding equipment also includes robotics, conveyors, custom degaters, thermolators, vacuum loaders, and dryers. 

Greenlight uses Engel and all-electric Fanuc Roboshot molding machines to produce a variety of plastic molded lenses.  Recent examples of lenses molded at Greenlight includes:  freeform lens arrays for LED lighting, precision laser collimating lenses, CMOS imaging lenses for robotics and medical devices, integrating tunnels, TIR lenses for LED illumination, and a variety of plastic microlens arrays.  The engineers at Greenlight Optics are experienced in when and how to take advantage of molded plastic optics.
