Thanks to its multiple benefits, laser has almost completely replaced traditional processes across a host of industry sectors. As a result, Knight Optical has positioned itself at the core of the revolution as a global supplier of precision optical components designed specifically for an array of laser applications.
From laser powered manufacturing production, safety and control systems through to defence, research, medical, industrial, detection, measurement and monitoring and automotive processes, our capabilities in the area of optical component design, production and testing have become world renowned.
Heavy Reliance on Laser equals Heavy Reliance on Optical Components
Critical and everyday processes undertaken around the globe have come to rely heavily on laser technology. It has automated and enabled procedures that would have previously been impossible, hazardous or inefficient. But where there is such reliance on laser applications, there must of course be equal reliance on the components that drive them.
Laser-powered processes are known to be exceptionally challenging, as are the environments in which they are used. Performance, accuracy and robustness are vital selling points of laser instrumentation, and this must also apply to the optical components that power it.
Chemically stable; tolerant of extreme temperatures; scratch and impact resistant; able to stand up to billions of laser pulses… the laser optical component really does have a lot to contend with, which is why it is vital it is expertly designed and precision manufactured to specification.
