The company invested $2 million in the new facility to expand its coating capabilities for the U.S. defense industry. The more than 2000-sq-ft space contains coating chambers of different sizes to meet customers’ performance, volume and cost requirements. Using e-beam and ion-assisted e-beam evaporation technologies, coated components meet the reflection and environmental specifications set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and the military (e.g., MIL-C-675, MIL-C-14806A).
“SCHOTT wants to give our customers a one-stop shop for high-quality coated optical components,” said Angela Hohl-Abi Chedid, Ph.D., business development manager, SCHOTT North America. “After investing in our Duryea facility, we can now coat our polished substrates in house. Using more than 125 years of optical glass expertise, SCHOTT has developed manufacturing processes that guarantee our customers not just industry-leading glass but top-quality polished and coated components as well.”
