All About Optical Systems and Lens Technologies

What is the lead time for the prototype?

The lead time for plastic lenses made by cutting at TOYOTEC, which operates Optical Design Technology Navigator, is about two weeks.

For plastic lenses made by molding, the mold is completed in about 6 weeks after the design specifications are determined, and samples that meet the specifications can be prepared in 6 to 10 weeks after that. However, the length of time required varies depending on the difficulty of the design specifications, so please ask us first.

The lead time for glass lens polishing prototypes varies depending on the material, but usually takes about 4 weeks.

In addition, unit products combined with multiple parts or a module product made up of mechanical parts can be configured in various ways depending on the customer’s specifications, drawings, quantities and other requirements.
The lead time for prototypes varies depending on the manufacturing method and materials used, so please feel free to contact us if you are considering making a prototype.
