Semrock’s High-volume Optical Filter Facility Picks Up Speed

May 1, 2013- Rochester, NY – Last fall, Semrock opened the door on a new high-capacity manufacturing facility for industry-leading optical filter products. Having entered full-scale production, Semrock now supports the needs of its OEM customers by producing 10,000s of spectrally complex, hard-coated sputtered optical filters with high-volume pricing. By building on its renowned filter manufacturing capability, Semrock can now extend the same quality and reliability that our customers expect to opportunities in the emerging diagnostic and point-of-care (POC) healthcare, and display and sensing markets where high-performance, miniaturized optical filters are an enabling technology.

The high-volume facility supports the manufacture of optical filters

•    Covering wavelengths from 330 nm - 1700 nm
•    Sizes from 3 mm x 3 mm
•    In volumes up to 10,000s, depending on the desired need.  

Due to improvements inherent coating process used, it is now possible to offer optical filters up to 8” diameter. All filters produced in this new facility are manufactured with proprietary optical monitoring to ensure the highest standards in batch-to-batch reproducibility and performance reliability for which Semrock is known and trusted.

Semrock is ITAR compliant and provides its customers with guaranteed product performance, on-time delivery, service responsiveness, and collaborative solutions from its expert team.
