subset of mechanical engineering specializes in optical systems, which
usually have much higher design and manufacturing tolerances than most
machinery. They also require submicron precision during design and
manufacturing. In addition, the glass used in optical systems tends to
have unusual physical properties that make it particularly difficult to
design around. We are experts at employing precision design techniques
to deliver products that match all appropriate specifications.
optical systems generally require the expertise of:
• An optical engineer, who focuses solely
on the system’s optical performance.
• An opto-mechanical engineer, who
designs the system’s mounting, shutters, zoom mechanism and other
The opto-mechanical engineers at Mechanical Engineering Professionals,
