Your typical glass optics are not cutting it in rough applications.
Have you ever had to replace a plastic or glass protective window due to scratches? Maybe a new lens in your optical assembly due to damage from a high power laser, or pressure from ocean depths?
Rather than continually replacing them with inadequate optics, consider sapphire glass. Sapphire is an extremely hard and robust optical material that can stand up to the harshest of environmental conditions and laser applications. With a Mohs hardness rating of 9, only diamond bests sapphire glass. Over time, a sapphire window exposed to elements and debris will still look as good as new after manual cleaning. In similar conditions, traditional substrates can become dulled, scuffed, and scratched.
Manufacturing companies that assemble products depending on crystal clear transparency have been choosing sapphire glass optics for many years now. They rely on Guild Optics to deliver precision sapphire optical components that meet their demanding surface specifications. These companies also rely on sapphire’s rugged nature to deliver performance as good as the day their product rolled out the door.
Guild Optical Associates is an ISO certified and registered ITAR corporation located in Amherst NH. All their work has been done in the USA at one growing location for the past 25+ years. If you’re ready to step up to sapphire optics, give Guild Optics a call today.
