Optical Assemblies

Optical Assemblies, Design, Prototyping, Test Capabilities and Production

Our assembly capabilities include rapid prototyping, custom-built and high volume assembly of aspheres, doublets, triplets, lens sub-assemblies and image modules. Test capabilities include characterization of radiometric properties, MTF, longitudinal and lateral aberrations, and lens centration. We have state-of-the-art equipment to perform both passive and active alignments. Mechanical assemblies are supported by our in-house machine shop, effectively using the most modern CNC equipment for fabrication of precision lens spacers and barrels. Our 20 plus years of experience at Kodak help put our customers on the right track and keep them there.

Class 100, 1000 & 10,000 Clean Rooms

RPO has over 40,000 sq. ft. of climate controlled, clean room space, our crown jewel of our advanced manufacturing strategy. These spaces are designed to deliver the highest quality optical lens assemblies requiring the most stringent particulate specifications.


Rochester Precision Optics has a comprehensive metrology lab including state of the art interferometers, surface profilometers, refractometers and spectrophotometers to ensure that any part is both optimized in the manufacturing process, as well as to ensure that every part meets our customer’s specifications every time. RPO realizes the importance of knowing what you make and thus can certify everything that is delivered, meets the customer’s specifications.

Rochester Precision Optics provides certified testing and verification of our optical designs and fabricated parts to ensure meeting our customer’s specifications on every part every time.

30+ Defense Products

RPO’s Defense Business Unit provides optical assemblies using many of our advanced technologies such as precision molded aspheres. Aspheres increase performance and dramatically reduce weight and size, which is a large benefit to our soldiers. We apply our glass and plastic molding technologies into the latest and most demanding thermal imaging and night vision (I2) applications such as eyepieces and complex objectives. Rochester Precision Optics is ITAR registered, TAA and Export trained and compliant.
