Delivering on Quality
Ross is the premier source for high quality, hard-to-find optics. Far from being just a vendor, Ross Optical has the capability to polish optics to meet your requirements. We also offer a full range of optical coatings (from 250 to 2400 in-house), as well as assembly services for multi-element optical systems and subassemblies.
It is of critical importance that we inspect every order before sending them on to you. Aside from ensuring complete and accurate documentation, we have the internal capacity to perform our own optical metrology using recognized standards. A common measurement sequence might be:
|Outside Diameter||Digital Micrometer|
|Center Thickness||Digital Dial Indicator|
|Radius CX||Spherotronic HR – Trioptics and Zygo|
|Effective Focal Length||OptiSpheric - Trioptics|
|Centration||OptiCentric - Trioptics|
|Chamfer Edges||8X Eye Loupe|
|Surface Quality||Eye Loupe - Unaided Eye|

Parts that fail any test are rejected, and if the fail rate is higher than the customer specification, we return the entire lot as unacceptable. Our thorough quality assurance process requires extra time and effort to clear parts, but ultimately it saves you time and headaches by providing you with the best optics every time.
Ross is certified to ISO 9001:2008 quality management standards. Documentation of our certifications and inspection processes is available upon request.
