Plastic optical components for optical sensors in the UK

Polymermedics is capable of producing plastic optical components for optical sensors.

We provide far-ranging services, starting with design and tooling for custom optics for optical sensors, in our Germany based facility, and ending with manufacturing and automated packaging here in the UK. We operate under the highest medical quality standards, that reliably allows us to achieve a robust process and clean conditions for manufacturing.

Polymedics can manufacture optical components for optical sensors for a multiplicity of applications: from proximity sensors for the automotive industry, and camera sensors for the mobile industry, to industrial machine sensors for the clothing industry.

THE MAIN TYPES OF OPTICAL SENSORS FOR WHICH WE CAN PRODUCE OPTICS ARE

  • 1 TIR optics. Total Internal Reflection optics refers to optics that is mostly symmetrical in form and provides a narrow-beam distribution, due to internal reflection in the plastic part surrounding the collimator lens. For example, it can be used for stadium illumination;
  • 2 Reflectors. Reflectors have the same principle as TIR optics, but the distributed light doesn’t partially reflect off of the surface of the plastic part that surrounds the lens, creating a wider distribution. This kind of wide light-distribution is fit for applications such as roadway illumination;
  • 3 Light guides. Light guides are typically used when a light beam needs to be homogenized and, in doing so, either illuminate a bigger surface or transport the light to a different spot. Applicable in automotive lighting, high-end architectural applications and much more;
  • 4 Freeform optics. Freeform LED optics has at least one freeform surface that directs light to ellipsoid beams, creating non-symmetrical illumination. Can be used for outdoor lighting;
  • 5 Hybrid optics. Hybrid optics typically refers to multiple lens system designs. For example, it could be a combination of spherical and aspherical lenses in one product. Among other applications, this type of optics can be found in aerospace lighting.
