If you use any type of lenses or other optics in your business, and you do not use custom optics, you may want to reconsider. After all, with custom optics being so widely available from so many lens manufacturers nowadays, they are not difficult to obtain.
Here are just a few reasons why you may want to look at ordering them for your business.
Easy access to lens manufacturers — With the advent of the Internet, getting access to optical lens manufacturers that can provide you with custom optics for a reasonable price has become so much easier in recent years. With thousands of companies online, comparing prices, finding out about the design and manufacturing process and being able to order the optics you want, all without leaving your office, is so easy nowadays.
In fact, what only a couple of decades ago was something you would usually order from a local manufacturer, is now something you can order from an optical lens manufacturer halfway around the world.
Ease of ordering — Once you decide you are going to order custom optics from a specific company, getting a free quote is simple. Just contact them via their website with the specifications of your optical order, and wait for a reply. If you decide to order from a company, you will be assigned an optical engineer who will work with you through the entire process.
Precision — As technology continues to advance in the optical field, the precision of custom lenses is even more precise than it was just a few years ago. Particularly if you need lenses or other optics for specific applications that only your business uses. Contact an optical lens manufacturer to find out just how precise they can manufacture your lenses.
Speed of manufacturing — Only a few years ago, getting custom optics used to take so long it often became too time-intensive for many companies. Nowadays, however, the speed a lens manufacturer can design, create a prototype for your approval and then manufacture your optics order is far faster than it used to be.
So much so, if the time involved was too much of a negative for your business, you may discover that is not the case any longer.
The availability of custom optics overseas — The main reason so many businesses now order custom optics is due to the availability of custom optics overseas.
With companies in countries like Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and China being able to design and manufacture custom optics for you in the same time period a western company can, and for a lower price, many American businesses now order from them.
Ordering is all done via the Internet, with all the major optical lens manufacturers overseas having English-speaking optical engineers. Design and manufacturing is also carried out in facilities that are run under international standards, and the custom optics manufactured are made to international specifications.
In fact, if you have not ordered custom optics for your business as yet, doing so from an overseas company may be something you should consider.
