OPTOTECH OPTIKMASCHINEN GMBH
OptoTech Optikmaschinen GmbH, as a part of the Schunk Group, is a modern, mid-sized machinery manufacturer with strong international character. Headquartered in Jena and Wettenberg, Germany, the company was founded in 1985 by qualified engineer Roland Mandler. OptoTech’s expertise in the field of optics processing machines, in combination with ultramodern process engineering, has made the company one of the world’s leading manufacturers of optics machines.
The company became successfully active in the field of ophthalmics in 1999. This expansion was based on already existing technologies and knowledge from the field of precision optics. The ophthalmics sector was penetrated in combination with targeted further developments, in particular individualised, free-form lenses for glasses. Today, OptoTech’s production systems for this market segment have become well established around the globe.
Our technology and system concept provides prescription production facilities of every size with custom tailored solutions. Our current product range encompasses pre-processing, polishing, measuring, Rx software, protection, deblocking, blocking, marking, cleaning, mould making automation and accessories. And thus in the meantime, we’re an entirely independent system supplier in the ophthalmics industry – in all disciplines required for making glasses. We offer machine solutions for all plastic and silicate products such as mass-produced lenses, prescription lenses and casting moulds for any desired products. This concept is globally unique and absolutely unbeatable.
A highlight of our ophthalmic division is mould making: the production of high-precision glass moulds for pouring semi-finished progressive or a-toric lenses is the royal discipline in the ophthalmic industry. OptoTech is the absolute market leader in this area, and offers a full range of machines for digital production of glass moulds. In combination with precision measuring technology for monitoring production, the highly innovative manufacturing method makes our concept unique. The OptoTech mould line makes it possible to implement a new design within just a few weeks – from R&D right on up to series production. At the same time, accuracy is significantly improved thanks to digital production. In some cases, modern progressive designs can only be realised by means of mechanical production. Special software programs like OptANA and EyeWizard assure optimised design quality within the process. OptoTech offers a complete system including machines, software and process training.
