The technological Level of Production
At present, the company manufactures a wide range of optical elements according to the drawings of designers of other organizations. The company manufactures protective screens, prisms, lenses, and many other products. The technical equipment of the enterprise allows the production of both large-sized optical elements and products of small dimensions up to 5 mm.
For the successful use of optical elements, the quality of the polished surface is of primary importance – flatness, minimum roughness, and the highest possible degree of processing purity. As a result of targeted actions, including investments of its funds, the company has significantly increased production capabilities in this area, using advanced computer technologies and modern interference control methods.
In the production process, constant step-by-step control is available at all technological stages for the timely exclusion and rejection of low-quality products. The park of factory equipment and machine tools is regularly updated to improve the quality of products and reduce the time loss during production.

- Properties and applicability of leucosapphire
The use of optical elements made of leucosapphire has become increasingly important in recent years, which is explained by many unique properties of this material. Today no other optical material possesses such a combination of mechanical (extremely high strength), thermal (highest thermal stability), and optical (transparency from UV to IR spectral ranges) properties.
Leucosapphire is used for the manufacture of optical products operating under extreme conditions that is when exposed to high temperatures, pressures, mechanical stress, aggressive media, and radiation. For the successful use of optical elements, the quality of the polished surface is of primary importance (flatness, minimum roughness, and the highest possible degree of processing purity).
We manufacture lenses with spherical and flat surfaces, flat-convex, biconcave and biconvex, flat-concave, and positive menisci.
Plane-parallel plates (windows)
They are used as protective screens, transmission optics, viewing glasses, and portholes.
Rectangular, rhombic, penta- and semi-pentaprism, Dove, Schmidt, Abbe, Pehan prisms, glued cubic. We produce non-standard prisms according to the customer’s drawings.
Fairings-caps (hemispheres, hyper-hemispheres)
Fairings (caps) of a semi- and hyperspherical shape are used to protect mechanisms and electro-optical devices in an aggressive environment, high atmospheric pressure due to the impact of an oncoming flow of liquid or gas, and mechanical loads. At the same time, the shape and materials used, while maintaining the required level of protection, allow ensuring the required level of transparency of the product.
Optical tubes (rods)
We make optical tubes (rods) to order.
Optical wedges are used both as single lenses and as optical components. We make custom-made optical wedges.
Microlenses are made of various materials of combined or cylindrical shape as optical components in laser surgery, microlenses of endoscopes, in microelectronics. We make custom-made micro-optics.
Maximum product size (D = 400mm x 60mm)
YAG laser components
Precision optical windows for lasers
Sapphire windows for watches and mobile phones
