New White Paper from Resolve Optics - Are off-the-shelf optics always the best solution?

Resolve OpticsResolve Optics has published a new white paper that compares the benefits to organisations of sourcing 'off-the-shelf' lenses with specialist lenses that meet the exact needs of their application.

Available as a downloadable pdf document from the Resolve Optics website the white paper discusses how, driven by financial considerations, organisations sometimes seek to incorporate 'off-the-shelf' lenses and lens systems in the design of their products.  However adopting an 'off-the-shelf' lens strategy also necessitates accepting compromises that typically result in poorer performance, restricted applications capability, a bulkier less attractive product and having little control over security of lens supply compared to a bespoke lens design.

The white paper guides the reader through the design and manufacture process for a bespoke specialist lens.  The process is illustrated with a case study describing a camera manufacturer who required a new lens that gave very high resolution over a large image format to enhance the performance and competitive standing of an important product.

Drawing upon an experienced team of optical designers and engineers - Resolve Optics is able to quickly gain an understanding of the basic physics of the technology associated with each customer's project enabling a novel, optimised and affordable specialist lens design to be proposed. The company goal is to provide a fast and flexible optical and mechanical design assessment on all projects. A project engineer is assigned to closely liase with customers at all points of a development to ensure complete satisfaction with the final lens or optical system.
