Your product’s success starts with an optical concept. Gemini Optics has its core expertise in optical engineering. To provide a broad array of optical solutions and engineering problem solving, we have strong capabilities in lens design, optical systems engineering, opto-mechanical design, instrument metrology development, and stray light analysis and control. We have experience in the ultraviolet, visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR spectra.
The Gemini Optics team members are creative, innovative, thorough, and persistently drive the project through the finish line.
Our design process is efficient: we initially establish technical product requirements and use them as a project guide from concept, trade studies, lens design, opto-mechanical engineering, assembly, and hardware testing. We add value to your products and business needs by exactly matching custom lens characteristics to your product’s needs. Your custom lenses will be tested against those requirements before it leaves our dock.
The design methodology is integrated with our flexible manufacturing processes. This creates a seamless, natural transition from design to prototypes to production. We use a design-for-manufacturing approach to minimize the effects of tolerances. We build this right into the foundation of every optical design. This protocol creates a smooth transition to production.
We have a seasoned program management that guides a project through specific development phases and gates from concept design and requirements through the lens production hardware delivery stage. This discipline maintains close track on the budget, project milestones, and all necessary resources to reach a project success.
Transition to Manufacturing
When we shift from a design phase to manufacturing a new lens, we often develop dedicated tooling fixtures and metrology equipment. In that step, we utilize our same internal optical and mechanical engineering resource as we use to develop a customer’s metrology instrument.
