A Global Optical Design Consulting Company You can Trust

The optical design process involves crafting a custom design for a specific lens that focuses on meeting your specific needs. At Shanghai Optics, we hold ourselves to the highest possible lens design standards. When it comes to delivering premium custom products to our clients, we understand the optical performance and physical/environmental elements necessary for producing custom optical components/optical lenses.

We combine competitive manufacturing costs, a streamlined design process and fast delivery services to bring you feasible and affordable lens designs faster than you can say “global optical design consulting company.” We have more than 60 years of experience in optical system, lens design, assembly, manufacturing and optical design consulting. Our capabilities include supplying complete optical design solutions from UV to IR wavelength lenses. The engineers and optical design consultants at Shanghai Optics are here to help bring your vision to life, from prototyping to volume production.

Overall Design Capabilities

As a leading global optical design consulting company, we go above and beyond to walk you through every step of our manufacturing process. Designing the perfect lens takes time, attention and expertise.

At Shanghai Optics, we offer integrated mechanical and optical design, fabrication, assembly and in-house testing to avoid delays in development and ensure the successful delivery of all products. Our engineers work with optical designers to balance trade-offs between cost, manufacturability and performance during the selection of materials, design optimization through virtual simulation and tolerance analysis.
