Zylinderlinsen und Zylinderoptiken

Cylinder Lenses and -Optics. Highest Image and Beam Qualities.

At our Berlin location, we produce cylinder optics and plane optics (cylinder lenses and mirrors) for demanding applications used in imaging and beam guidance systems.

Example areas of use are:

  • Field of view and distortion correction (photo/film)
  • Beam guidance, expansion, homogenization and astigmatic correction in laser systems (material processing: lift-off and annealing, drilling, welding, rapid and additive manufacturing)
  • Beam guidance, expansion and astigmatic correction (printing)

Cylinder lenses (up to 2.000 mm) and mirrors

  • In strip form (curvature at desired dimensional axes possible)
  • With crossed cylinder axes
  • Coated and uncoated
  • Free, customer-specific external contours
  • Also mounted and equipped with mechanical adjusting device
Large cylindrical lens

Large cylinder lens (up to 2.000 mm, cylinder and plane)

Cylinder cemented lenses

  • Cemented cylindrical optics, parallel or crossed
  • Duplets, triplets, quadruplets
  • Free external contours
Triplet: Three cemented cylindrical lenses


Doublet: Two cemented cylindrical optics


Cylinder optics for laser beam homo­gen­ization

Array lenses

  • Customer-specific geometries (length up to ca. 200 mm)
  • Sharp-edged and chip-proof to reduce loss of interference light
  • Coated or uncoated
  • Rimless coating for respective cylindrical lenses
  • Very high laser durability
Array lenses for beam homogenization

Array lenses for beam homogenization

Cylinder rods

  • Customer-specific geometries
  • Cylindrical lenses in strictest production tolerances

Combi­nation of spherical / cylindrical optic components

  • Highly precise, combined lenses with spherical and cylindrical surfaces (customer-specific)
  • Combinations can be manufactured also as strip lenses (can be curved along desired dimensional axes)

Measure­ment and qualifi­cation of cylinder surfaces

In order to improve our volume productio of cylinder lenses and cylindrical optics, we qualify real parts as well as measurement and reference parts and conduct regular test series.

Possible qualifications are:

  • Pass measurements of cylinder lenses using interferometers with hologram correction elements
  • Serial stitching of cylindrical lenses for total pass characterization
  • Generation of input data for precise correction processes
  • Radii measurement of each cylindrical lens
  • Fully analyzed according to customer-specific specifications (e. g. functional evaluation, curvature progressions, gradients, pass in subapertures) and to ISO 10110-5
