Development of a customer-specific lens

The provision of a customized lens is roughly divided into the following four steps:

  1. Lens study
  2. Creation of a prototype lens based on the lens study (optional)
  3. Design and construction of the injection moulding tool for the custom lens
  4. Manufacturing first production lot of custom lens

The lens study represents the starting point for the development of a custom lens.

Prerequisites:

Order to develop a custom lens

Action:

  • Clarification of the requirements relevant to lens development in close cooperation with the customer.
  • Clarification of already existing design restrictions in the area of the installation location of the lens (interface lens – device).
  • Provision of the datasheet of the sensor and its arrangement.
  • Design of a suitable zone pattern ev. in variants (max. 3)
  • Arrangement of the lens segments on the available lens surface as well as the definition of the optical centers of the individual segments.
  • Determination of material, colour and thickness of the lens.
  • Quotation for the creation of a prototype lens (step 2)
  • Quotation for the construction of the injection mould (step 3)
  • Quotation for the custom lens at a quantity of 10’000 (step 4)

Duration:

4 – 6 weeks

Cost / Payment conditions:

Typically Euro 5’675.00
CHF 6075.00
USD 6525.00

50% due on order, 50% due on customer approved lens study.

Deliverables:

Lens study with contents clarified as mentioned under action.

Remarks:

The lens study is written in such a way that the customer can then decide whether he wants to entrust the prototype development (step 2) or the toolmaking (step 3) to someone else and not the company KUBE Electronics AG. However, it is advisable to choose a toolmaker who has experience with Fresnel structures.
