Custom Optics and Photonics

At Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association (RTMA), we offer superior custom optics manufacturing services. We can produce a wide range of optic styles, including aspheres, spheres, and prisms. With our advanced technology, we can also manufacture toric or free form optics.

Specializing in military/government and semi-conductor applications, our custom optics have even been used in various space exploration missions! With the ability to make optics up to one meter in diameter, we offer quick turnarounds on our custom prototypes with resources to transmission to full rate high volume production. And, our knowledgeable support staff is more than happy to take your calls, offering expert advice regarding the manufacturability of optics.

Providing precision optics, we invite you to contact Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association for all your custom optics manufacturing needs!
