Our Technological Advantages

When you’re ordering custom optical designs, you need to find a supplier with the technology necessary to produce your optics to a high standard. When you choose custom optical engineering from Shanghai Optics, you’ll gain access to our state-of-the-art design and manufacturing engineering team.


Our engineers start by designing your custom optical lens or assembly in Zemax, AutoCAD or other design software. With computer models and prototyping, we’re able to optimize your lens for manufacturing as well as performance. Once you’ve approved our final design, we’ll begin manufacturing using our in-house production equipment. We handle all aspects of production to ensure proper control over all stages in production. Once manufactured, your optics will undergo rigorous quality inspection. We use several types of metrology equipment to measure accuracy, spectrum, performance and alignment of custom optical lenses and assemblies.

What Else We Have to Offer

In addition to industry-leading design and manufacturing technology, Shanghai Optics provides a high level of customer service. When you order from us, we’ll work closely with you to make sure your optical lenses meet your specifications.


Our goal is to provide custom optics that make our customers 100% satisfied. First Article Inspection allows you to test a sample of your lens before making commitments. If the sample doesn’t meet your specified requirements, we’ll make the necessary adjustments accordingly. We also offer worry-free returns. If you go forward with your order and the products arrive defective, we’ll replace them or provide a credit or refund.
