    Description: 

    Rick Plympton, CEO of Optimax, will present "Optimax Estimator Tool."

    Abstract(s): 

    The Estimator is a unique tool designed to allow optical engineers to input the parameters of an optic and adjust tolerances to get its estimated cost, empowering them to find the best balance of performance versus cost.

    This tool is limited to prototype optics within the following boundary conditions:

    • Quantity between one and 10 
    • Optimax-preferred glasses
    • Diameters from 10mm to 100mm
    • Surfaces of f/1 or slower
    • Tolerance band within range of manufacturing tolerance chart
    • Antireflection coatings in the visible spectrum 

    The Estimator is designed with a standard delivery in mind and may have an expedited one-week delivery. 

    The full capabilities of Optimax are much broader. If your project requirements are outside the Estimator's scope, please contact a sales engineer for more information.
