Our goal is to accompany your projects competently, right from the first conception to optical design and serial production. For this reason, we offer you optical design in our own comprehensive service portfolio, from which you are welcome to choose the modules that best suit your needs and demands, at any time.
What are your development demands? What economic and technical potential could/can you expect from optical (re)development? In any event, you'll be provided with a solid basis for your particular development decisions with kdg Opticomp consultancy.

Stocktaking and formulating the development demands
Analysis/simulation of existing optical designs (for imaging and illumination optics)
Evaluation of the technical and economic potential of optical (re)development
Criteria for production-orientated optical design
Whether we’re talking about an operating theatre in a hospital or the shop floor in a factory, each room – each environment – has its own special requirements.
Switching to LED is not only energy-efficient, it opens up completely new possibilities for illumination and enlightenment.
In this phase, we develop differentiated solutions to your development demands. Using a detailed, photometric analysis, we evaluate the feasibility and complexity of your demands/tasks, use this to develop multiple optical concept proposals, which we then present to you in detail with all the pros and cons in terms of costs for development, manufacture and installation. The final in-depth analysis of the respective solutions (concepts) is at the heart of this module. For this objective assessment will enable you to select the most appropriate and best plan for your needs and requirements.
Usually, what we receive at the outset is a request or an idea. We scrutinise the feasibility of specific approaches on your behalf.
Many roads lead to the lighting you’re after. We analyse and evaluate all the different options for you.
Development of the desired and necessary optical specifications
Photometric analyses, evaluation of feasibility and complexity
Support in LED research/selection
Development of several optical concept proposals (with freeform optics, lenses/mirrors, light pipes, Fresnel optics, array optics, etc.)
PRODUCTION-ORIENTATED OPTICAL DESIGN
The idea and solution are now given a final three-dimensional form. At the end of this complex process of development stands an intelligent optical design, which not only takes into account all relevant requirements and standards, but also lives up to all production aspects, on which we are steadily working in our own in-house production in order to constantly optimize and expand the manufacturability of complex free-form surface structures, that enables us in return to offer you new and sophisticated solutions in optical design time and again, with which you will get a clear USP in the market. It goes without saying that we constantly review the performance of our optical design in detailed simulations and analysis.
Our optical designs are fully fit for manufacturing. We turn our jointly developed lighting idea into an implementable form.
Our high-precision approach begins with our optical design. We only release products which have undergone prior simulation and thorough checking.
Modelling (including materials, light sources) for the optics simulation
Development of a production-orientated and robust optical design: calculation of the individual optics in close cooperation with the production
Simulations and analyses to review the demands/standards/tolerances
Generation of CAD models and delivery to production
Above all, the fact that our optical designs are fully fit for manufacturing provides you with planning and cost assurance. Our proven process-knowhow ensures that you benefit from a smooth workflow.
