Customer care and assistance, optical design and assemblies of finished optical systems done in controlled environments


Grinding, polishing and optical centering at their best

A huge part of Tecnottica’s production is now dedicated to the manufacturing of plano and spherical optical components who require very tighten optical and geometrical tolerences; these elements are usually inserted in machine vision systems, imaging systems and in setups for laser applications.

The precision optics department, built into a separated area of our plant in Calco, has been studied in a way that can operate independently from the rest of the production. Through this philosophy Tecnottica protects and guarantees the respect of tolerances and lead times of all its product lines by differentiating his own offer directly starting from the production area itself.

Thanks to constant investments in high-tech machines, Tecnottica is able to grind, polish and center optical surfaces with the highest standard available today by the modern technology and is able to achieve optical flatness by the order of lambda/20. Optical cementings and optical centerings are completed with centering values below 30”.
