Optical Design & Assembly

Hyperion Optics has more than 40+ custom precision assembly projects ongoing annually, from prototyping to mass production. Our lens assemblies range from microscope objective lenses, expanders, to SWIR/MWIR/LWIR lenses and more. With our reliable optical & mechanical design capability, we are confident to achieve challenging assembly jobs.

Our standard optical design service covers feasibility research, design specifications verification, preliminary design and analysis,andprototypeto volume production.

We are comfortable with LRIP (Low ratio initial production) projects, which can be challenging for most optical companies given a low starting quantity for proof of concept purposes. Our typical LRIP projects take about1-2 weeks for preliminary design development and review, another 4-6 weeks for prototyping and assembly,and finally 1 week for final testing and inspection.Hence,a short lead time cycle of7-8 weekscould jump start your project andbring your designto life.Given our experience and expertise in the design and manufacturing departments, our design is highly DFM (Design for Manufacturability) driven, thereby guaranteeing the actual production yield & feasibility in your go-to-market strategies.

Design for Manufacturing

Complementing our design services,Hyperion Optics isa one-stop-shop withfull capabibilitiesof producingvarious custom opticalcomponents,fromsingletlenses to complicated aspherical surfacesacross thespectrum. This feature significantly increases the ease for your procurement process. Our own QA standards (ISO:9001 compliant) offers peace of mind to our customers who can count on us fordependable, high-qualitydelivery.

We are comfortable tofabricate systems involving DOE,aspherical surfacewithoptical glasses such asSchott/Ohara/CDGM/NHG to IR material such as Chalcogenideand ZnS. Please refer to our IR and high precision components manufacturing capabilityfor more details.

In our design process, our common practice includessharingthe most up-to-date glass catalog and refractive index data from  CDGM and NHG with our customers. In some cases, we offeractual testedRindex through VIS up to 2500 nm per different materials upon request.Ourengineers arehappy toresearch on the material feasibility and availability from our resourcesand databanks.

One unique advantage we offer in optical design is that you get to enjoy the full support fromthe Hyperionproductionteam as we collaborate on a design project. By combining our optical design expertise with our manufacturing experience, we can perform manufacturing tolerance & cost analyses, feasibility testing, and specification definition with a much greater degree of accuracy. To-date, we have accumulated a portfolio of design cases whereby Hyperion helped create cost effective systemswith optimal performance (without over-spec on the components), while securing a successful prototype in the first run.

Optical Design & Assembly

Hyperion Optics manufactures and assembles the components required in your optical system, enabling you to achieve your goals in fewer and more efficient steps. Our optical design and manufacturing teams constantly evaluate to arrive at the most cost-effective solution via creative thinking and optimization. With our comprehensive metrology in-house, Hyperion’s one-stop-shop process can help guarantee precision outcomes & application performance. We are dedicated to offering you top-quality lens assembly at an optimal budget.

We serve clients who need acomprehensive service from design, optical engineering, to manufacturing & assembly. Our team of 15 optical and mechanical engineers conducts diligent research and study of the end application to insurethatour final solution will work seamlessly in your system. Further design adjustment and optimization is also applicable based on actual usage and testing.

Hyperion's Premium Optical Design Package Offers:

  • Free Design Consultation: We offer free preliminary design and design review for your concept feasibility study, including MTF simulation andpragmaticsuggestions.
  • Material Recommendation: With over one decade of working experience with major glass vendors, we always come up with the most cost-effective and reliable material mix for your lens assembly solution.
  • Parameters Analyses (upon special request):You have the best understanding of your system and application requirements. We happily provide additional simulations and analyses based on our customers’ interests during the design stage.
  • Strict Quality Control: Hyperion assigns a special project-based QA team exclusively for lens design projects, which consists of the top inspectors and qualified engineers to oversee prototyping, assembly, all the way up till final inspection. This team is co-led directly by the Head of Engineering and the Head of QA.
  • Custom Inspection Requirement:We understand that each lens assembly has its own unique acceptance criteria. Hyperion Optics actively works with the customer to develop the most suitable inspection methods and invest in necessary procedures based on our current metrology setup.
