Plastic optics
An economic advantage,
a necessity in certain circumstances.


Plastic optics has proved revolutionary where a manufacturer wishes to integrate optical and mechanical function in one component. The often emphasized rule of thumb is that plastic optics has relatively high initial cost, but provides high reproducibility, good optical quality, and low cost per piece in volume production.
The development work may appear complicated, but the functional solution will be worth the effort.
 
The combination of good performance and low cost is perfectly achievable and unbeatable in plastic optics. Experienced optics designers and well-adapted collaboration partners are the key to successful development of plastic optics.
 
Alfa Exx has worked with plastic optics for several years, and is well familiar with possibilities, special traits, and limitations of this type of optics.
