Designing a high-performance lens is only one part of an optical designer's job. The more elusive challenge is often in the tolerancing of that lens and in linking toleranced performance to as-built performance.
Join us for a 45 minute webinar presented by Edmund Optics' design and manufacturing experts Shelby Ament and Katie Schwertz to learn about the challenges and best practices of designing manufacturable lens assemblies. This webinar will provide background information on how a multi-element lens assembly is manufactured and assembled while providing insights on details that should be taken into consideration in the design and tolerancing stages. Taking extra time early on to consider these details can improve performance and yield, while reducing costs in the long run.
Throughout this webinar, participants will gain insight on the following topics:
Katie Schwertz is a Senior Design Engineer in Edmund Optics' Tucson, Arizona, USA office. She is responsible for executing optical and optomechanical designs, tolerancing, analyses, and prototype evaluations for both internal development and external customers. Katie received her MS in Optical Sciences from University of Arizona, College of Optical Sciences and a BS in Optics from University of Rochester, Institute of Optics.
