Optics Manufacturing provides advice on the manufacturability and costs of your product, and conducts production process research. Furthermore, we focus on the manufacturing of sophisticated optical components and instruments. TNO's advice and products are commonly applied in space instruments, astronomy, scientific research, Semicon and high-tech industries.
The design and manufacturing industry for high quality instruments and high-tech systems is on the rise in Europe. Optical components and subsystems are more and more often the determinants for functionality in relation to measurement, movement precision and process speed. The integration of optics in a system design requires specific knowledge of the manufacturability in relation to the costs and functionality. TNO is your ideal partner in the development and realization of optomechatronic systems. We are your advisor in the field of optics manufacturing. In addition, we use our research and production facilities for the production of prototypes and small series optical components and assemblies. Moreover, as TNO innovation factory we are always looking for new challenges in which functionality and costs are key. We feel comfortable on the edge of technology.
Optics Manufacturing of TNO houses a multitude of experts and professionals, whose knowledge and experience is directed towards a large diversity of processes. Our knowledge covers:
Besides research and advice, optical manufacturing is our primary task. In this manufacturing we make a distinction between spherical optics, aspherical optics and freeform optics. Depending on the form, size and material, the processing techniques are performed by:
Optics Manufacturing produces multiple optical components, e.g.:
