Carclo-Optics has always been at the leading edge of optical technology since its foundation in 1936: such development has seen them placed at the forefront of its class. The dramatic growth during the 1950's to 1970's can be largely attributed to a policy of diversification and successful identification of emerging markets, particularly electro-optics.
Lenses and Light-guides are usually moulded in clear Acrylic or Polycarbonate and the involvement of Carclo design CAD and optical software is often important to ensure optimum performance. Miniaturization is a key feature of this product group and Carclo have developed techniques that enable surface finishes to micron accuracies.
Recent advances in LED technology has lead to the development of high efficiency Collimator Lenses for these diodes. Although most applications call for a custom solution, a range of lenses to meet the most popular applications is now available. The recently introduced range's of Collimator Lenses for the High britness LED's. These lenses are available in popular angular divergences and can be customized to suit any application. The lenses can be supplied with a range of holders.
