Mass production of waveguides on wafers
Wafers are coated and cured
Individual waveguides are cut from their fabrication wafers
Individual waveguides (red & blue) brought together
Tinted to enhance augmented reality images
All waveguide assemblies are tested for accuracy and optical performance
Our dedicated manufacturing line is situated at Goertek’s state of the art facility in Weifang, China and is jointly operated by Goertek and WaveOptics staff.
We have recently introduced our UK based New Product Integration facility. Our NPI facility has an assembly line, that includes waveguide stacking, edge blackening & testing.
There is a dedicated space for module and projector assembly where we are able to test out designs and prototypes - this helps speed up the product design process for WaveOptics standard products, as well as customer projects.
The secure facility will also be used for training our contract manufacturing and ODM partners. The facility is a unique space where our partners can learn quickly how best to build and align WaveOptics modules. This will enable the transfer of this skill set into our partners own manufacturing environments.
The NPI facility also has additional dedicated lab space to support our R&D efforts, focused particularly on new technologies. The state of art machinery enables the teams to speed up the evaluation and testing of new R&D approaches.
