The components exhibit different shapes, sizes, and reflective properties, indicating a diverse range of optical elements used in various applications such as imaging systems or scientific instruments.

LED Optic Design & Manufacturing Capabilities

Our optical engineers use the latest ray trace software to bring your ideas to light in line with parameters such as luminous intensity, illuminance, and flux. 
This helps to establish the best optic system design that becomes an integral part of your unique LED solution.

We encourage an open, honest discussion about your needs and goals. Our world-class optical engineers will work with you through every stage of our fool-proof process. Once the design is approved, we’ll provide production representative samples, testing and volume production.

Forge is here to help from the initial designs through prototyping and every step leading to manufacturing your brand-new custom LED optics.

LED Optic Benefits

Key reasons to consider LED optics include enhanced aesthetics, minimised light pollution, increased control over emitted light and maximised overall efficiency.

Custom LED optics are designed to suit your exact needs. The number one benefit of investing in customised optic designs is product differentiation. 

A custom LED optic solution is often an enabling product differentiator, a brand emphasis and a key unique selling point.

LED Optic Materials

We design and manufacture LED optic systems with a wide range of materials and, in many cases, a combination of materials. 
Here are just some of the materials we work with:
Glasses – ideal for exterior, heavy duty applications and decorative optics

Polycarbonates – ideal for interior use when space is tight and where temperatures are high

Acrylics – outstanding for large lenses and lower operating temperatures

Silicones – for outdoor use, challenging environments and innovative geometries

Alloys – aluminium reflectors with various surface coatings for large-area applications
