Optics and coatings are the focus products produced at SIO. Our expertise in the fabrication of complex prisms and precision lenses brings the natural capability to manufacture assemblies and sub-assemblies. We adhere to the highest standards of manufacturing and testing, combining optical components with opto-mechanical subassemblies – all meeting the performance requirements of MIL-PRF-13830B and specific customer requirements.
SIO’s optics department has the equipment and expertise to manufacture a complete range of precision and commercial optical components in both visible and infrared ranges. All optical processes from machining to coating are performed under the strictest environmental and process controls to assure that the most exact tolerances and high surface quality are met uniformly.
It is our objective to support our customers through all phases of product development – from product design through product development to mass production. We have the capability and willingness to produce any size lots and to supply our customers with only products that are consistent and of acceptable quality. We adhere to MIL-I-45208A/MIL-Q-9858 and MIL-STD-45662, and all other special provisions required by our customers. Any and all testing performed on our products is backed up with documentation and certifications as required. We have full in-house testing capability that, in addition to standard equipment for such geometric characteristics as angle measurement, slope measurement and surface roughness, includes a full range of spectrophotometers, interferometers and autocollimators.
Optical Element and Surface Quality is according to MIL-PRF-13830B and customer specific specifications.
