Optics Machinery

Machinery and systems for precision optics, ophthalmics, metrology and vacuum coatings.

  • Precision Optics Machinery

    From micro-optics with diameters down to 1 mm right on up to optics for lithography, aviation and aerospace with diameters of up to 2000 mm. OptoTech supplies cutting edge technology for nearly all applications in the field of precision optics.

Precision Optics

OptoTech offers the world’s largest range of machines and processes for processing precision optics. Amongst other products, we supply our customers with optics processing centres for grinding, polishing and centering / edging, correction polishing machines for achieving the highest possible quality, measuring technology, as well as alignment and joining technologies. Whether machines are required for round optics, plano optics or the production of cylinders and free-form surfaces; from micro-optics with diameters down to 1 mm right on up to optics for lithography, aviation and aerospace with diameters of up to 2000 mm; from lenses to prisms, from domes to complex optical components – OptoTech supplies cutting edge technology for nearly all applications in the field of precision optics.

Machines for Ophthalmic Lens Production

Our technology and system concept provides prescription production facilities of every size with custom tailored solutions. Our current product range encompasses pre-processing, polishing, measuring, Rx software, protection, deblocking, blocking, marking, cleaning, mould making, automation and accessories. And thus in the meantime, we’re a system supplier in the ophthalmics industry – in all disciplines required for making glasses. We offer machine solutions for all plastic and silicate products such as mass-produced lenses, prescription lenses and casting moulds for any desired products. 

Vacuum Coating Systems

OptoTech offers production solutions for the entire manufacturing sequence from surface processing right on up to surface finishing. The product range covers systems for anti-scratch coatings, anti-reflection coatings and easy-care coatings for ophthalmic applications, as well as systems for finishing optical components in the field of precision optics. Our know-how in the field of coating processes ranges from simple anti-reflection coatings all the way up to complex filter systems. Measuring and test instruments for characterisation of the coatings, as well as for quality control, round out our spectrum of offerings.

Metrology for the Optical Industry

OptoTech is a pioneer in the field of workshop measuring technology. Ever since the company was founded, we’ve developed a suitable, workshop-compatible measuring instrument for each manufacturing cell. In the meantime, OptoTech offers a unique range of workshop interferometers, 3D measuring machines, run-out testers and adjusting machines for optical components. For example, OptoTech offers interferometers for spherical optics with diameters from 2 to 150 mm and the measuring range goes all the way up to 300 mm for plano optics. Even aspherical optics, the most demanding optics, can be measured by means of special holograms. Whereas contactless measurement is used as a rule for precision optics workpieces, a tactile coordinate measuring machine for ophthalmics rounds out OptoTech’s range of measuring equipment.
