Case Study: Developing a Custom 1.8mm Diameter C-Lens

Shanghai Optics is a leader in the production of custom C-lenses and D-lenses for fiber optics applications. Our products offer significant benefits, including cost-efficiency, minimal insertion loss, and a broad operational distance range. Our expertise in overcoming challenges in microscale manufacturing, material selection, surface quality control, and economical mass production ensures consistent, high-quality outcomes. In a recent project, Shanghai Optics worked closely with a client to deliver micro lenses that met rigorous specifications, underscoring our commitment to quality and innovation in micro-optics solutions. 

Project Details

Creating C-lenses at the microscale involves several critical challenges:

  • Precision Machining: Achieving exact dimensions for lenses with diameters around 1mm.
  • Material Selection: Choosing materials for their optical properties and durability.
  • Surface Quality Control: Ensuring the surface is smooth, clean, and precisely shaped.
  • Resistance to Environmental Factors: Enhancing moisture and corrosion resistance.
  • Economical Mass Production: Maintaining quality while keeping production costs low.
