Engineering Design
With more than 100 years of optical and mechanical design experience,
our engineering staff will efficiently help your team develop optical
From conceptual design to manufacturing, we’ve assisted companies
in a wide range of industries. These include aerospace, automotive,
defense, semi-conductor, and telecommunications.
We use industry standard software tools such as Zemax, FRED,
SolidWorks, SolidWorks Simulation, and HSMWorks to design and
analyze optical instruments, and to export CAD models directly to
CNC machine code. This allows for everything from precision rapid
prototyping to manufacturing of finished products.
Engineering Support
OSI’s expertise in precision optical instruments, prototyping, and lowvolume production, combined with our vertically integrated internal
resources and facilities will allow you to advance your schedule and
achieve greater quality than any other solution in today’s market.
With engineering and manufacturing under one roof, we can quickly
design and build optical hardware to your specifications while engineering
and fabrication occur simultaneously.
We’ll work with your engineering team to create first article prototypes
from your ideas. When a project is complete, we can provide designs,
documentation packages, and completed systems; precisely assembled,
optically aligned, debugged, and ready for production.
OSI provides turn-key solutions to manufacturing your optical systems.
