Converting your ideas into products
ECRM is the right partner for customers needing innovative support from prototypes to volume production. We are well known for imaging technology and are capable of doing subsystems, whole systems and instrumentation. And, we specialize in all aspects of scanning, optical design and laser systems. ECRM is capable of providing overall industrial design to ensure a user friendly contemporary image that’s fully functional.
Optical Design and Engineering
The core of ECRM’s technical expertise is in the development of optical systems. ECRM works closely with its customers to generate a specification for an optical system. Our optical engineers use sophisticated design tools (Zemax) to develop, optimized component specifications. As part of the optical design, electrical and mechanical engineers participate in the process to be sure that all aspects of the design are properly integrated and all tolerances are clearly defined. ECRM’s optical engineers work closely with qualified fabrication suppliers, both domestic and offshore, to optimize component specifications to address quality, cost and design for manufacturability, all resulting in a high-value/high quality optical system.
ECRM is expert in designing and building alignment fixtures that assure high quality, reliability and consistency in the manufacturing process. All optical assemblies are first built as prototypes to be sure that design specifications have been met and design for manufacturability issues have been addressed. Once complete a design is then released to production.
Working within an ISO13485 certified environment, quality is built in to the design and manufacturing process and are central to ECRM’ s ability to consistently produce highly reliable optical systems.
Our team has many years of experience designing precision laser imaging and motion control systems, with emphasis on low cost, low maintenance and high reliability. We are experts at the intersection of digital, analog, motion and optics. We can help you with any stage of your project: concept, prototype, production, and product enhancement.
