Are Your Lenses Becoming Obsolete?

Optical component obsolescence has always been an issue for buyers in industries ranging from aerospace and defense, right through to the nuclear industry.  In these industries, equipment tends to have long life cycles that outlast the life spans of the optical components that are critical to those systems.

A new article from Resolve Optics discusses the benefits of adopting a bespoke design strategy to manage this challenge.

Increasingly, optical component obsolescence is also becoming an issue for medical and scientific equipment, which typically have shorter life cycles. As product life cycles continue to shorten, so many optics manufacturers are obsoleting their off-the-shelf components at a faster rate than ever before to keep up with the pace of technology demand in the marketplace.

The article discusses how investing in a bespoke lens design for your product gives you control over security of supply and the ability to have optimised performance compared to an off-the-self design.

Over the last 25 years Resolve Optics has successfully developed many innovative, high performance OEM lenses for customers seeking to replace hard to source or obsolete optical components for their camera, sensor or instrument system.
