Custom Optical Filter Fabrication
There are about as many types of glass filters as there are perhaps applications for them. Yet despite all the variety, one thing is clear: Sydor Optics offers exceptional manufacturing capabilities when it comes to custom optical filters. With the largest collection of double-sided grinding and polishing machines in North America, Sydor Optics can precisely fabricate custom filters to meet your exact requirements, from basic prototyping to high-volume production and every step in between. While color glass filters can be ordered directly from the original manufacturer, standard surface flatness and transmitted wavefront tolerances may not meet your precision requirements which is why Sydor Optics double-sided polishing process stands out.
Sydor Optics has extensive experience manufacturing uncoated filter substrates and colored filter glass. The coating process, managed by a dedicated Sales Engineer is outsourced to the most experienced coating vendors in the industry. Common optical filters include shortpass, longpass, bandpass, notch and edge with filter coatings suited for the infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV) and visible (VIS) color spectrums.
