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 tool for the custom lens
  4. Manufacturing first production lot of custom lens

Voraussetzungen:

  • The lens study is available.
  • The outer surface (matt, gloss or high gloss) must be defined.
  • Colour for the initial samples must be defined.

Action:

  • Creation of a revised offer based on the latest technical data (lens study, lens prototypes incl. Test feedback) as well as the expected quantities for the first three years and the planned order quantities.
  • Design and production of the tool.
  • Production of initial samples (typically 10 pieces)
  • Test of the lens by the customer in the corresponding application.
  • Release of the tool by the customer for series production

Duration:

8 - 16 weeks (depending on the complexity of the lens and the expected annual production)

Cost / Payment conditions:

Euro 5’775.00CHF 6’175.00 USD 6’650.00
Euro 26’250.00 CHF 28’050.00 USD 30’200.00

(including 10 first samples plus shipping costs). The cost depends heavily on the complexity of the lens and the expected annual production

Rule of thumb: For each segment

plus
Euro 2’100.00 CHF 2’250.00 USD 2’425.00
initial costs.

Payment Terms:

50% due immediately upon placing the order, 30% due immediately, upon delivery of the initial sample, 20% due immediately after approval by the customer.

Deliverables:

10 initial sample, lens validated by customers on equipment.

Duration:

8 – 16 weeks (depending on the complexity of the lens and the expected annual production)

Cost / Payment conditions:

Euro 5’775.00 – Euro 26’250.00
(CHF 6’175.00 – CHF 28’050.00,
USD 6’650.00 – USD 30’200.00)
including 10 first samples plus shipping costs. The cost depends heavily on the complexity of the lens and the expected annual production

Rule of thumb: For each segment

Euro 525.00 plus Euro 2’100.00
(CHF 550.00 plus CHF 2’250.00,
USD 600.00 plus USD 2’425.00)

Payment Terms:

50% due immediately upon placing the order, 30% due immediately, upon delivery of the initial sample, 20% due immediately after approval by the customer.

Deliverables:

10 initial sample, lens validated by customers on equipment.

Remarks:

The client accepts that although the tool for the lens belongs to the client, it remains in the hands of the production company throughout its lifetime. On the other hand, the production company undertakes that the tool will be used exclusively for the production of lenses of orders of the client or for customers who have been authorized by the client to do so. The production company is also responsible for the maintenance and insurance of the tool. This obligation automatically expires 2 years after the last production lot. The tool will only be handed over to the client in the event of insolvency of KUBE Electronics AG or if KUBE Electronics AG finally withdraws from the PIR lens business.
The selected toolmaker is familiar with Fresnel structures and he is able to work out the structures required for the tool in detail.
