LED Optic Design

LED Optic Design & Manufacturing Capabilities

Our optical engineers use the latest ray trace software to realise key parameters such as luminous intensity, illuminance, and flux.
We can then establish the best optic system design that becomes an integral part of your LED solution.  Once the design is approved, we’ll provide production representative samples, testing and volume production.  Our production capability is highly flexible and can accommodate start-up volumes (tens to hundreds of parts) through series production (thousands to millions).

LED Optic Benefits

Key reasons to consider custom LED optics include enhanced aesthetics, minimised light pollution, increased control over emitted light and maximised overall efficiency.  But in many cases the number one benefit is product differentiation – a custom LED optic solution is often an enabling product differentiator 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 – great for large lenses and lower operating temperatures

Silicones – for outdoor use, challenging environments and for innovative geometries

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