Optical Assembly & Bonding

Sydor Optics offers optical assembly and optical grade bonding of windows,  filter stacks and other flat optics to save time and create better integration of optics into larger systems.


Our Design for Assembly/Manufacturing (DFA/ DFM) techniques provide key design simplifications or changes, adding to overall improved manufacturability. Our highly experienced Assembly Team offers design advice to be certain your parts are delivered flat, secure and ready for the next phase of your project.

Environmental Control

The clean room facility offers excellent environmental controls that allow for pristine mounted glass to be dropped into your system. Our process controls ensure stress-free, contamination free, reliable bonded optical assemblies.
