Service List

Francis Lord Optics provides a diverse range of…

OPTICAL WINDOWS and FLATS

From Crowns, Flints, Fused Silica, Pyrex, BK7, Synthetic Quartz Crystal,  and more. Up to 250mm ø with a flatness accuracy of  1/10th wave . We have techniques for grinding and polishing many different types of optical glass, and metals. We export optics  worldwide including USA,  Netherlands, Ireland, England, India, Germany, France and Italy.

    

VARIOUS OPTICAL COMPONENTS

We can manufacture Flat  Front Surface Mirrors, Concave and Convex Mirrors, Diffusers, a wide range of Filters for any wavelengths, Polarisers, Wave-plates,  Beam- splitters, Gratings, Laser Optics and LED Illuminators.

    

PRISMS

Right Angle, Penta, Dove, Rhomboid, Equilateral, Wedges. Made from most optical grade materials.   As well as specially designed prisms. All of these components can be produced from a wide range of materials and in quantities suitable for prototyping through to production.

LENSES

Plano-convex, Bi-convex, Plano-concave, Bi-concave, Cylindrical, Meniscus, Achromats, Triplets, etc, from most of the currently used optical materials. Francis Lord Optics staff provided specialised labour to CSIRO on the LIGO project and the IRUS Infra-Red Camera for the Siding Springs 4 Meter Telescope!, and have close cooperation with many other CSIRO projects.

CAMERA LENSES

Individual element regrinding, repolishing and recoating services available to the Camera Repair Industry.

OFF THE SHELF OPTICS

We have a large stock of optics in house, as well as access to many overseas manufacturers at very competitive prices.

GLASS HEAT STRENGTHENING

We can thermally heat strengthen standard glasses with our Flat Bed Process. Unlike tong supported ovens our flat- bed oven does not produce any tong marks in the glass, so the glass looks cosmetically more appealing! .Our work can be seen in such venues as Sydney Showground commercial lighting, Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport, and the Art Gallery of NSW (UV filter, colour corrected, diffused, safety glass). Acceptable sizes range from 50mm to 300mm square, and from 3mm to 22mm thick!.

TELESCOPES AND BINOCULARS

We are agents for the Saxon Range of Precision Optical Instruments, such as Astronomical and terrestrial Telescopes, Binoculars and Microscopes. We also offer our expert advice in making the choice that is right for your requirements.

            

MILITARY OPTICS

We can supply Riflescopes, Night Vision Monoculars, Laser Range Finders and Binoculars with camouflaged coverings.

    

ACCESSORIES

Both Table-top and Floor Standing Camera Tripods, Hand-held and table top Magnifiers and Electronic Weather Stations.

ANTIQUES

We sell Brass Antique Telescopes, either with small or large tripods.
