Precision Optical is pleased to offer competitive prices and lead times on many common types of optical components, from prototype-to-production quantities. The prism configurations are completely customizable, with choice of substrate, angles, dimensions and surface flatness tolerances. Custom machined facets, chamfers, notches and other features are also available upon request, as are a wide variety of standard and custom thin film coatings.

Highly-specialized optical systems often require components that cannot be classified under the standard prism types. Unusual prism shapes, angles/beam paths, thin film coatings, or chamfers/flats and other features may bring into question the manufacturability of the optical components.

Since the company’s founding in 1959, Precision Optical has specialized in manufacturing custom optical components for the most demanding applications. Our facility is configured to allow flexibility in addressing our customers’ custom prism needs, from prototype units to large scale production. Our experienced sales staff collaborates with our engineers and manufacturing technicians to evaluate the feasibility of each prism design, and can offer advice on how to reduce costs while optimizing the performance of the custom prism. Our experienced sales our ISO 9001:2015 design-certified engineering team can assist in the design of custom prism configurations.

Partnering with Precision Optical through their Ensign-Lambert Optics Education Program has allowed over 120 of my laser and optical technology students to gain real-world perspective with hands-on work in optics. These interactions directly motivate the next generation of technicians as they learn first-hand how this fascinating work with industrial hardware will translate into rewarding careers.
