Ontario, NY--Optimax is celebrating 20 years of optics manufacturing.

Ontario, NY--Optimax, a manufacturing company that provides rapid prototyping of precision optical components in sizes up to 300 mm, is celebrating 20 years of optics manufacturing and is focused on maintaining our corporate culture of continuous learning. Optimax--which recently won some SBIR contracts--says its team has created technology breakthroughs in computer-controlled machining and metrology of optical glass and hard ceramics, aspheric, and free-form optics. Through ISO certification and a lean culture of continuous improvement, Optimax says that it is prepared to expand its capability for high-precision optics.

This year, Optimax is doubling its capacity to provide production optics, including 2000 sq. ft. of space for two environmentally controlled rooms specifically engineered to provide enhanced metrology capability. With a 30% increase in business in 2010 and again in 2011, it has become necessary for Optimax to increase our capacity to continue to support our customer's projects with the on-time delivery of high quality optics. We are investing over $5,000,000 in capital equipment to double our capacity for the manufacturing and testing of optical components. Occupancy in the new space is scheduled for the fall of 2011.

Optimax specializes in asphere, cylinder, sphere, and plano/flat optics. All parts are manufactured to customer-supplied specifications. Final inspection data is included with the optics.
