Partner: Dental Wings
Using these acquisitions, Optech set up a specialized optical microsystems laboratory. The lab is used to reproduce industrial manufacturing conditions with a focus on automated micromanufacturing methods, microassembly and quality control.
“The specialized laboratory set up by Optech for microassembling optical components allowed Dental Wings to complete several projects requiring cutting-edge expertise, and its equipment portfolio allowed us to design and implement processes for assembling high-performance optical microsystems. Without local access to these skills and equipment, we would definitely have had to subcontract a larger part of our development outside Canada.”
– Jean-Marc Perot, CTO, Dental Wings
Over the last few years, Optech has carried out many optics microassembly projects in a number of fields requiring high-precision optical components. In the biomedical field, integrating micro-optical devices into an assembly requires very strict assembly tolerances and the development of reliable, trackable processes that are scalable for industrial production.
