  • Construction
  • Mining

Our experienced engineers can create a design that is high performing and light weight while maintaining a low cost for high volume production.

Machine Vision

Ensuring Quality and Consistency 

RPO can help you create a product solution that will increase quality and consistency for your current operation. These optical assemblies must be not only high quality but also highly reliable and capable of high speed imaging.

Applications include:

  • Quality control imaging
  • Robotic imaging
  • Hyperspectral imaging
  • Automatic inspection
  • Metrology

By working with our experienced team, you also have the ability to create a custom piece. This advantage can help to ensure smooth integration for operation. 

IR Physical Security 

Protecting your Information

With an increasing concern for the safety of information and data, optics have become a larger part of security measures.

Examples of physical security using optics include:

  • Video surveillance
  • Biometric readers
  • Infrared motion detectors

Due to the demand for dependable security, your optical system must meet the need for clear visiblity and high resolution. IR optics and IR illuminators can be a high performing security solution.
