The partnership combines FISBA's process engineering and production technologies in glass molding with Edmund Optics' broad-based optical component, sales, and manufacturing expertise. The two companies will extend mass production of molded optics into nontraditional materials, specifically for infrared lenses.
"FISBA is known for being a leader in the optical design and the production of molded optics," said Samuel Sadoulet, President and COO of Edmund Optics in a press release. "We hope to leverage this technology and production knowledge to provide customers with high quality optics specifically designed for infrared wavelengths."
Werner Krüsi, CEO at FISBA, also commented: "We look forward to teaming with Edmund Optics - a truly global company that is able to immediately and directly work with customers on these exciting applications.”
The combination of both companies’ process technologies and their manufacturing and marketing expertise will lead directly to the availability of new infrared optics in Edmund Optics' standard product line and for customer projects in OEM applications by either partner. The newly-developed optics will be suitable for use in life science applications, including infrared imaging, laser surgery, as well as industrial and environmental applications in remote sensing and thermal imaging for detection and security.
