Optical industry components require the highest precision and accuracy to ensure easy placement in complex equipment, such as microscopes, lasers, and telescopes.
Our advanced 5 axis CNC machines precisely mill components which meet the rigorous demands of the optical industry, ensuring the highest tolerances possible – less than .0001. Owens Industries understands how each component fits into the project as a whole and its application of use, allowing our machinists to effectively machine parts so they fit perfectly into their assembly.
Owens machinists welcome any challenge and do not accept defeat. When presented with the trial of creating an optical switch requiring 1,000 small holes – each hole angled specifically to meet at one focal point four feet away – our team did what other machine shops across the US, Germany, and Japan could not, machined this complex component with the highest precision and accuracy possible, exceeding the standards set. This is not the first case in which Owens made what appeared impossible possible.
Electron microscopes require a lens holder – detailed enough to handle something as delicate as a lens but durable enough to protect it. Our expert machinists understood the highest tolerances are essential when dealing with something as minute as electrons, where the slightest error could be disastrous. We frequently design custom components which consistently meet these strict requirements and regulations. Our precision machining services for optical components are in high demand across the entire industry.
We can machine more than lens holders and assemblies. A recent project of ours was an optics assembly housing for a borescope. When engineering this particular component, we needed to ensure the lens assembly could accurately function while still being properly secured. We created a custom component which perfectly met the optical needs of our client.
