Opto Mechanical Design

Optical and Opto-mechanical design is a specialisation at Glyndŵr Innovations.

We have a proven track record of producing designs for the mounting of optics from small consumer optics to large mirrors several metres in diameter.

Using this knowledge we have:

  • Custom designed optical test equipment including spectrographic instrumentation.
  • Design and production of optical and support systems for a wide variety of industries.
  • Design of light-weighted optics for airborne and space applications.
