New Division Tackles the Most Challenging Photonic Projects

NEPTUNE CITY, N.J., Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- KrellTech, the leading manufacturer of optical polishing and inspection equipment, announced today the formation of its LightWorks Solutions Group dedicated to customer-driven photonic projects.

KrellTech New Division, Lightworks, Tackles the Most Challenging Photonic Projects

LightWorks consists of select KrellTech engineers with diverse disciplines ranging from mechanical engineering to optical design. It is a highly customer-centric unit, targeting unique applications with the most demanding requirements.

Justin Frick, Team Leader, believed that a group separate from KrellTech's general engineering department would be able to better focus on customer needs. "LightWorks will manage technologically difficult and customer specific projects. This includes assistance during early R&D stages, as well as providing design strategies for higher volume production and manuacturing."

The standard KrellTech optical polishing and fiber optic inspection equipment line is positioned for applications ranging from optical medical devices to fiber optic gyroscopes, to PICs and quantum chips. LightWorks leverages these products' advanced features and benefits. "Of course, we will draw upon existing and proven KrellTech equipment, modifying operation and enhancing performance to meet a specific project's demands," says Frick. "However, our group will be able to focus on specialized design and engineering support."

"KrellTech has a history of product innovation and is the "go-to" company for unique customer applications," added Frick. "The formation of LightWorks cements KrellTech's role as a partner for photonic innovation."
