Custom Molded Glass Aspheric Lenses
Rochester Precision Optics offers custom molded glass aspheric lenses from less than 1mm to 60mm diameters. Our process is not limited to typical moldable glasses, the process can utilize a wide range of optical grade glass types allowing the designer more flexibility. There are over forty glass types currently qualified and it is quite easy to qualify new glasses. A “Precision Glass Molding Technical Brief” has been developed to help in this design phase. This technical brief provides information to help an optical designer optimize lens performance and manufacturability when using the glass molding process at Rochester Precision Optics (RPO). These recommendations will help reduce the design time normally spent in customizing a lens for manufacturing. It is a guide and is not intended to be a definitive statement of capabilities or cost. Please consult with the Engineering Staff at RPO as needed during the design phase of a project.
