The Precision Glass Components division produces optical components such as light pipes (concentrators) for advanced Concentrated Photovoltaics (CPV) systems in large runs using a process that makes it possible to mold the glass as soon as it leaves the furnace. The Precision Fast-Molding process developed by Docter Optics permits production of optical components for high-end medical and analytical equipment or illumination/LED applications.

The Optical Systems division partners with companies worldwide when it comes to the development, production and assembly of customer-specific optical, optomechanical and optoelectronic subassemblies for a host of applications ranging from biometrics and security technology to medical equipment or industrial image processing. In addition, this division produces the Tevidon, Stilar and Auto-Tessar lenses developed by Docter Optics.

The Docter Optics Express Glass Services division is the choice of preference of the international optical industry when it comes to the production of semi-finished products, components and prototypes of optical and synthetic glass or quartz.
