Optical System and Plastic Optics Manufacturing
The Greenlight Optics staff has been manufacturing aspheric lenses, plastic optics, and complex optical assemblies for an average of over 20 years.
Greenlight Optics is ISO 9001:2015 Certified
We are skilled and experienced in the key elements that make up a successful optical system manufacturing operation, including: quality systems, tooling design and build, functional tester development, operator and technician training, and metrology and inspection.
A number of optical systems that were designed and prototyped by Greenlight Optics are now in volume production at Greenlight Optics facility in Cincinnati, Ohio. These include DLP Projection Engines, LED Illumination modules, laser optics, aspheric lenses, near to eye displays, projection lenses, and camera optical modules. Co-location of product development and manufacturing ensures a smooth transition from development into volume production. In addition to our extensive in-house capabilities, Greenlight Optics leverages a global supply chain.
In the US, we have strong supply partners for optical coatings, microdisplays, sensors, LEDs, and lasers. Our in-house manufacturing capability is well-suited to producing low volume instrumentation, medium volume optical modules for commercial and medical applications, and high volume plastic lenses and subassemblies.
In some cases, an industry’s supply chain is centered in Asia and it makes sense for the optical system to be assembled in Asia as well. In these cases, Greenlight leverages our relationships with Asian optical contract manufacturers and supports our customers with transfer or management of optical system production at the Asian contract manufacturing sites.
