Economical Production of Optical Components, Systems and Semi-Finished Products
The use of optical components in large – and in some cases extremely large – quantities is becoming increasingly common throughout industry. Today, glass is the material of preference for such components, not only because it is so environmentally friendly, but also because of its optical versatility, durability and resistance to solarization. Docter Optics is earned an industry-wide reputation for pioneering the development of unique processes for the production of optical components. The core competency of Docter Optics lies in the production of such components in large volumes with exceptional precision and economy. Docter Optics offers customers an array of services that extend along the entire value chain and include everything from optical design and engineering to production of prototypes, preproduction runs and industrial-scale production.
