Incorporated in 2014, Delta Optical has expanded its customer base into new territories and new applications such as hyperspectral imaging and laser scanning microscopy. This growth was supported by investments into new coating machines and technologies. The 24,756-square-foot building is custom designed to accommodate the particular needs of manufacturing high-performance optical filters. It includes clean rooms, offices, a canteen, and meeting rooms.

 

In parallel with the construction of the new building, which will be ready in Autumn 2020, new coating technology will be acquired. “We have been thinking hard about the optimal workflow for our filter production and optimized the layout of the building accordingly,” chief technology officer Henirk Fabricius said in a statement.

Delta Optical Thin Film is a supplier of advanced, high-performance continuously variable filters used in a variety of biomedicinal imaging applications including fluorescence microscopy, hyperspectral imaging, compact spectrometers, monochromators, and micro-plate readers among others. The company also provides single, multiband, laser-line, and broadband band-pass filters, long-pass filters, short-pass filters, dichroic and polarizing beam splitters, and other custom coated optical components.
