Art Opt offers innovative design and practical product planning for OEM and contract customers. Extensive experience enables the design of simple and cost-effective imaging systems implementing complex lens designs, reflective and refractive components and appropriate mechanical housing. The company also has experience in diffractive and holographic optics, and offers illumination system design and analysis, and stray light analysis and suppression.

Art-Opt offers a complete range of product development services. The company works closely with industrial designers, and identifies suppliers and fabrication methods that can deliver cost-effective and technically excellent products from initial concept through design and engineering to prototype and high-rate production.

The company specializes in advanced optical and mechanical technologies to provide customers with innovative solutions. Capable and experienced in working in the competitive commercial arenas, wherever possible Art-Opt used injection molded optics and housings as well as off-the-shelf optics.

Art-Opt expertise also extends to non-imaging optics, including illumination systems for projectors, machine vision systems, and other similar applications.

Art-Opt have also worked with very contemporary technologies, including diffractive and holographic optics, non-rotationally symmetric aspheric surfaces, reflective systems, and other state-of-the-art technologies. The company uses advanced computer-aided optics and has an array of tools that provide improved efficiency, reduce costs, minimize errors, and increase engineering accuracy.
