Optical Surfaces Invests in New Class 10,000 Clean Room Facility

Optical Surfaces Ltd. - a recognised leader in high precision optical solutions for high power laser research, astronomy, space, defence, test and measurement, and scientific applications has announced investment in a new class 10,000 clean room facility.

Today a growing proportion of high precision optical applications pose increased cleaning requirements on the production environment - be they individual components with particularly demanding surfaces or assembly of high performance optical systems.

Dr Aris Kouris - Sales Manager at Optical Surfaces Ltd commented 'Customer desire to push the limits of optical performance has been a key driver in this investment. The new clean room facility will allow us to eliminate airborne contaminants from our final assembly and inspection area - thereby guaranteeing the highest quality product is delivered to our customers'.

Optical Surfaces Ltd. has been producing optical components and systems for more than 45 years and is now accepted as one of Europe's leading manufacturers of high-precision optics. The company's main workshops and test facilities are deep underground in a series of tunnels excavated in solid chalk where temperature remains constant and vibration is practically non-existent. With such stable conditions testing particularly with long path lengths become quantifiable and reliable. Working with these natural advantages is a highly skilled team of craftsmen with a commitment to excellence in both product quality and customer service. Optical Surfaces ISO 9001-2000 approved manufacturing facility provides the flexible resources to supply from single specialist requirements to OEM quantities. All high precision optics are provided with a complete quality test assurance report.
