Why customize a machine vision lens?

We provide a wide range of machine vision lenses. The common lens options that are available, like C-mount, M12-mount, F-mount, and telecentric lenses, are included in our portfolio. Nonetheless, there are instances when employing a customized machine vision lens could benefit your vision project in a number of ways. Here are some explanations as to why you might find it advantageous to alter your machine vision lenses:

  • Lens for special cameras: Certain machine vision cameras are designed with unique features, like a unique lens mount or distinct dimensions. A standard machine vision lens is not a suitable solution for these unique cameras. We provide the option to create a custom lens that fits your unique camera exactly.
  • Rebranding: We provide a plethora of options for rebranding your machine vision lens, including personalized lenses featuring your brand's emblem on the lens housing.
  • Specific lens requirements: Occasionally, you'll need a feature—like a fixed focus, fixed aperture, or an IR-cut filter adhered to the lens—that isn't standard on our lenses. For the majority of our lens models, these are the standard customization choices. Custom focal lengths, custom part numbers, and custom mounts are some more instances.

Typical customization options for vision lenses

When it comes to lens customization, there are numerous options available. Customizing a fixed-focus machine vision lens is one possibility. Only 100–200 pieces are required as a minimum order quantity, depending on the type of lens. A fixed focus lens or a fixed aperture lens are two other options we provide for custom lenses. For these options, the same minimum order quantity of 100–200 pieces are applicable (depending on the model and type of lens you are interested in). You can find a range of lens filters that work well with your machine vision cameras online when an IR filter is needed. We can provide you with a machine vision lens that has an IR filter glued to it if you don't want to mount the lens filter yourself. Depending on the type of lens, the minimum order quantity for the custom glued IR-filter is likewise 100–200 pieces.

A vision lens with a suitable custom mount for your unique camera is an additional option for custom lenses. Our website offers a wide selection of lens adapters for industrial cameras. These adapters allow the use of an M12 or F-mount lens on a C-mount camera. Additionally, we offer a CS-mount to M12 mount adapter. When there is limited room for a lens in a vision application, a lens with a custom lens mount is a good way to avoid using an adapter. It is possible to get a customized lens mount for at least 100 lenses.

We also provide the option to customize the particular lens part number. For small quantities of 50–100 pieces, you can replace the lens part number with your own unique part number (depending on lens type). The final option is to have your C-mount lens' focal length customized to fit extremely particular or unique needs; the minimum order value is 300 pieces. A custom focal length M12 mount lens has a Minimum Order Quantity of 500 pieces. We offer a variety of focal lengths in our standard machine vision lenses. In the vision application, it is feasible to provide a lens with a focal length that precisely matches your machine vision camera.

How much does a customized lens cost?

The amount of customization needed and the quantity needed determine how much a customized machine vision lens will cost. The one-time cost for minor customizations such as a fixed focus, fixed aperture, or custom lens mount ranges from $1,000 to $5,000, depending on the type of lens. The cost per unit stays about the same as that of the typical lens.

In the event that you commit to a specific number of orders, you might be eligible for free additional basic customizations like a custom part number. In other instances, a small increase in the standard cost of the personalized vision lens might be necessary to accommodate the modifications. For example, the standard price of the vision lens is only marginally increased when a glued infrared filter is added to it. A one-time fee might apply to more complicated customization requests requiring specialized parts or substantial engineering work. For example, depending on the type of lens, a custom focal length can cost between $50,000 and $150,000 in NRE.
