Computer Optics Inc (COI, Inc.), acquired by Clear Align in 2013, is an optics company committed to providing clients with the optical design experience needed to establish their application specifications and to design an optical system that meets their design needs. COI has the experience and processes to provide lenses needed - a stock fixed focal length lens or a fully customized infrared zoom lens; a high resolution telecentric lens or a FLIR system; a new product or to inspect one currently being manufactured.
Fulfilling exacting lens requirements for these military and commercial applications depends on in-depth design and engineering capabilities. Computer Optics Inc. (COI) applies years of experience and knowledge in zoom lens and fixed focal length lens systems to help customers meet both defense and industrial challenges. COI designs solutions for demanding defense, machine vision and surveillance applications. In addition, COI offerings go beyond product designs and prototypes to on-site and off-site consulting. Custom designs range from simple lenses to complex systems and components. Among the specific zoom lens programs in which the firm has been involved are a 4X f/2.5 for precision machine vision, a 6X f/2.2 zoom lens for missiles, a 14X high resolution zoom lens for space vehicles and a 4X Afocal zoom lens for a FLIR system. COI has also developed the COI/COX lens design library which is a family of generic lenses that serves as an optical system database. This database provides a foundation for cost effective, timely, customized solutions for numerous customer applications. In addition to these extensive design capabilities, COI can fabricate customer designed lenses for visible, UV and infrared applications. Operations include electro optical design; the generation, polishing and coating of lenses; machining operations; assembly and testing.
