Optical Design CapabilitiesPatent button 2

Fraen specializes in the design of optics for LED lighting, including: TIR collimators, reflectors, lightpipes, free-form optics, and complex color-mixing adjustable-beam systems. Fraen optical designers use ASAP, LightTools, Zemax, SolidWorks, PTC Creo (Pro/E), Rhino and others to design and simulate imaging and non-imaging components and systems. Designs are realized via in-house tooling, measurement, and injection molding capabilities. A vast library of standard and custom optical designs and over 15 years of LED optic experience facilitate quick and accurate designs, and a variety of prototyping methods and materials enable prompt affordable optics for testing, validation, and demonstration prior to production. Fraen’s Engineers continuously design and  develop innovative optical solutions, yielding a wide variety of intellectual property.
