Sill Optics is the specialist for quality and innovation in the field of photonics technologies. With regard to customized development as well as standard solutions we have established ourselves internationally and are one of the leading companies in this business. The company with more than 125 years of experience is located in Wendelstein.
Lenses for Machine Vision
For over 40 years Sill Optics has been producing telecentric lenses. First in the form of profile projection lenses and since 1989 in the current form for digital cameras.
For more than 40 years, Sill Optics has been designing, producing and offering telecentric lenses for machine vision. Based on the success of profile-projection lenses, which are still available, a wider range of telecentric lenses for modern imaging processes has been developed to meet demanding requirements. Furthermore our product range has been extended by lenses with coaxial illumination, entocentric macro optics, wide-angle lenses and telecentric condensers.
Sill Optics’ philosophy is to develop and produce completely at their own site in Germany. Our flexibility, besides high quality, is also to offer customized solutions, modifications and designs on short notice.
Our catalog presents only our most common products. In addition we offer customized systems of special telecentric or entocentric lenses up to complex opto-mechanical systems. Our resources comprise both extensive experience in optical design and mechanical engineering. Production with modern technologies from single prototypes up to medium quantities is possible to meet highest demands.
Contrary to the human eye, telecentric objectives have an intake pupil placed in the infinite plane. They are mainly used in microscopes and measurement technology, e.g., in optical micrometres. But projecting systems like profile projectors and photo lithography systems for semiconductor and micro-system technology also require telecentric objectives.
Telecentric lenses are designed with an entrance pupil placed in infinity. Compared to entocentric lenses, only parallel principle rays are imaged through the lens. This ensures a constant magnification for the entire depth of field.
Specifications of our lenses, e.g. about distortion or resolution, are according our datasheets, which are available at the download section of the product tables.
Our standard lenses are just an idea of the various adjustment possibilities. Please let us know your requirements.ext
In addition to the telecentric lenses our product range also includes entocentric lenses. These are corrected for infinity and mostly equipped with a variable iris.
Macro- and wide-angle-lenses are also part of our product range and are completed with lenses for special wavelength ranges such as UV and NIR as well as SWIR.
The accessories section offers valuable additions to our products, e.g. current supply for condensers and lenses with coaxial LED-illumination, dimmer and constant-current control. For condenser of S6IRIxxxx series, please order S6IRDxxx. This ensures that the current supply matches to the included LED. Our new condenser series S6LTCxxxx already includes a dimmer.
As further accessories, we offer protective glass attachments for objectives and condensers. They are simply clamped onto the corresponding telecentric objective. Please select the appropriate clamping diameter for this, modifications to smaller diameters are possible at any time.
Our lens mounts enable to fix most of our lenses and condensers up to your requirements. For series T compact, T60, T85, T120 and T150 lens mount S5SET0020 is recommended. Modifications to other diameters are possible.
Furthermore we offer a wide range of adapters. These serve as modification to a suitable camera thread and required flange focal back distance. Customized adapters are available upon request.
