Gaggione, a manufacturer of custom-made lenses

For more than 40 years, Gaggione has been developing and manufacturing standard and custom optical components in plastic injection, in different types of polymers: PMMA, PC, and Silicone to meet the ever more specific needs of its customers.

Advantages of custom optics

A custom solution is the right choice for a customer who does not find the standard optic in GAGGIONE’s standard optics range.

Depending on the customer’s specifications and requirements, GAGGIONE is able to design the complete optical system and provide the lens, collimator, diffuser, light guide or other appropriate optics to meet the requirement.

Our experience includes applications in the field of general lighting, street and urban lighting, the transport industry or other applications that require us to shape light in a certain way. But creating a specific light distribution is not the only reason to choose a custom design. More and more companies understand the strategic value and show the value of investing in their own solution to save money.

Not only do custom optics help reduce system complexity, they are also the solution to improve performance efficiency, market distinction and recognition.

Tailor-made optics, a Gaggione specialty

Having your own optical system is a guarantee of differentiation by design and offers greater potential to improve the performance of the final product. Relying on a partner with solid experience and a worldwide reputation is the solution that GAGGIONE offers to Shape Your Light.

From defect is one of the main key factors to be controlled in order achieve desired optical results. It is qualified in µm. The lowest the better (see illustrations below).

It is also an important cost driver for plastic parts injectors when trying to make it as small as possible. Both tooling and parts cost will be impacted. As a consequence, you can select the target where your application will have the best fit following guidelines below. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

We thus recommend the following target depending on your product type:

  • Medical, Imaging systems optics : 30 µm to 50 µm
  • High End General lighting : 50 µm to 100 µm
  • General lighting, Street lighting, commodity markets : 100 µm to 200 µm
