"With our requirement for an improved and environment-focused light source for our contact lens measuring instruments, Xitek worked closely with us to design and build an innovative prototype LED light engine using the latest technology.  After intensive and highly successful evaluation, Xitek now supplies Optimec with the new LED light source featuring as standard in our instrument range."

Optimec Limited


LED Light Engine Optical Illumination

Optimec are global market leaders in high quality contact lens measuring and inspection instruments.  Xitek are delighted to have been confirmed as a preferred supplier with Optimec.

Xitek were approached to provide a new illumination system to replace the aged dichroic lamp technology, due to phasing out of the product line.  Xitek then went ahead and developed a new LED light engine.  The solution incorporated considerable cost saving and power management improvements.  The type of LED used incorporated a single high power efficient LED, with associated narrow beam requirements.

Xitek have worked closely with Optimec to research a solution for illumination in their optical instruments and this has resulted in the development of the LED light engine.

The technology has now been rolled out over Optimec's entire instrument range and Xitek look forward to working closely on future developments.
