  Designs Optimized for Integration and High Production Yields

Edmund Optics® (EO) offers a variety of design services in order to meet the specialized needs of our customers. We excel at designing optical and optomechanical systems from components to assemblies and from direct view to imaging to laser optics, spanning from the UV to IR. Our design engineers are well versed in tolerancing and complex optical and mechanical analysis. Whether stock or custom, we’ve found that approaching the design and proof-of-concept stage with an eye towards manufacturability at the onset yields the fastest, most affordable, and most effective results. EO engineers are prepared to take your project all the way from design to prototype to volume production.
