With the addition of Application Engineer Gary German, Empire Precision Plastics continues to increase its team and capabilities in plastic optics.
“Gary has worked with optics and other tech companies for over 30 years, helping them to develop new products and grow revenue,” said Neal Elli, President of Empire Precision. “Using this extensive experience, he is working with our automotive, medical device and components companies looking to convert from glass to plastic optics.”
German said, “Empire has a philosophy of doing the job right. The companies I've worked with appreciate their high quality, focus on process, and advanced technology. They’re really the first to take the scientific molding process into optics molding; this process makes a huge difference in quality and consistency.”
Further plans include new positions in the optical engineering department, new technology for optical metrology, and dedicated white room optical molding.
In 2012, Empire acquired the assets of a local optics company, making it one of the only plastic injection molders to also manufacture polymer optics in-house. With capabilities such as single point diamond turning and advanced metrology, Empire completes plastic prototyping and full production of optical components.
