Proven Materials backed by Innovation in Design

Careful materials selection is vital for electronic and optoelectronic components, particularly for industrial environments. Popular materials selected for their strength and durability include sapphire, borosilicate, ruby and quartz, all of which the experts at Knight Optical can provide in-depth guidance on. Custom coatings that lend themselves to electronic and optoelectronic components include ITO, AR, hydrophobic, DLC and blocking coatings. Full reassurance comes via comprehensive documentation and auditing of all materials. Our custom design and manufacturing processes allow us full control over every stage.


Understanding Quality

Our rigorous testing procedures – using advanced metrology equipment and skilled QA inspectors – ensure all our products satisfy even the most specific requirements. This applies to one-off custom parts and large production runs. Every single component we supply is proven to perform. We will also provide you with all the information you require for your documentation. We can reassure you that there is transparency on your ordered items including a metrology report and a certificate of conformance to quality standards. We are able to provide you with as much information as required to ensure that legal obligations are met, allowing your instrument to be approved for use as soon as possible.

Whether you want us to manufacture optical components based on your technical drawings, or need us to design parts or systems for your brief, we have the resources to make your concepts a reality. We always start by understanding your particular needs and expectations, and work to ISO 10110, BS 4301-1991, and MIL-PRF-13830B, to produce optical components and sub-assemblies at the correct quality, on time and within budget.

Knight Optical value every one of our customers, and therefore you will be assigned a dedicated account manager, who cares as much about your project as you do. They make the process of getting a quotation to receiving an order, as smooth as possible. We go above and beyond ensuring that your supply chain experience is as stress-free as possible.
