Sub micron technology

Our optical components are created with precision technology developed the last decades by several R&D labs. This ‘Sub Micron Technology (SMT)’ is incorporated in our diamond turning machines and makes it possible to create mechanical movements far into the sub micron area in a repeatable manner.

The accuracy of this technology depends on the material and the object and can reach values down to several nanometers (nm), hence the name of Sumipro: Sub Micron Products.

We use this technology to create optics in a wide range of materials, i.e. various polymers, aluminum, germanium and silicon, nickel and other non ferro materials. Through this choice of materials we can supply optics through the whole spectrum of light. We have delivered optics for night vision and thermal imaging camera’s as well as all kinds of optics for visible light applications.
