OPTIS customers share their satisfaction
" We've seen a huge potential in being able to simulate our products and avoid costly and time consuming physical prototyping. We've done evaluations of three optical lighting solutions, and ultimately chose OptisWorks, mostly because of ease of use and CAD integration into Solidworks. It's the full package that convinced us : technical, performance and also customercare. Finally, we also expect OptisWorks to bolster us up in becoming a Tier-1 supplier in the near future, as we will soon be ISO certified".
With the new OSD feature, it just takes few minutes to design pyramid optics which previously needed several days for our CAD designer to create.
Thanks to OPTIS software, Philips Lighting North America truly believes we can shorten our product development time by using the new Optical Shape Design tool. It was a very valuable evaluation experience for general lighting in indoor and outdoor applications. Its power and usability make it a recognizable asset to any optical designer.
The software and what it enables us to accomplish continues to be a major part of our business for our own product development and the services we offer our clients. There are several simulation software packages on the market but it has been the exceptional technical support we have received over the years in addition to the software’s capabilities that insures that we will remain an Optis customer.
We soon became aware that this double choice would have meant us re-entering data each time we went from one software to another. This operation is unrewarding for engineers, costly in time, and also a source of errors
Thanks to OPTIS software, we truly believe we can shorten our product development time and eliminate the time-consuming and costly phase of making physical prototypes. It was a very valuable evaluation experience for the cockpit lighting design, and I am confident we can extend the technology to other sectors such as cabin lighting and exterior lighting...
Designing Airport Light Fittings means solving many different kinds of problems, mechanical, electrical as well as optical design. Our optical components very often have mechanical functions too. Therefore optical design is just one of many things our engineers have to do; they cannot be specialists just doing nothing but optical design. That is the main reason that we need a optical design tool that is easy to get familiar with and that is easy to handle also for engineers who do not optical design every day.
The things I like most about SPEOS are its calculation speed, ease of use, fast learning curve and the high-quality support », says Clemens Stöberl. For Ruetz, the success of the operation extends much further than its contract with Audi : the company is now acknowledged as a major OEM in the automotive lighting industry. The confidence of the manufacturer Audi, gained thanks to Ruetz’s partnership with company OPTIS has opened up a new market.
The development team at Global Lighting Technologies, Inc. has experience with most of the major optical simulation packages that are available. Speos is, in our opinion, the most powerful package we have ever used. Speos has many unique features that have made it possible for us to simulate extremely complex systems, that we were simply not able to simulate before, with any other package. We feel that features such as the Speos Distributed Server and Speos Advanced Texture Module set this software apart from the rest, for modeling complex lighting systems. In addition, the service and support that we have received from Optis has been excellent. The Optis team has provided invaluable help to us in making sure that we get the most from their software, and that we are able to get the answers that we need from Speos.
I have been using OptisWorks to analyse a laser system that has three lasers and two scanning mirrors. I can very quickly in SolidWorks move one of the mirrors and do a ray-trace to see exactly where the beams go. I can then repeat this process many times moving the lasers, mirrors and window to finetune the best location for these parts.
I would like to congratulate you on your software SPEOS for photometric simulation. The visualization of files is fluid and intuitive. The definition of geometries in script form is pratical for automatic programming. The XferCAD interface is very efficient.
...We are very satisfied using OPTIS SPEOS Standalone software to design our product i.e. Headlamps, Tail Lamps etc. SPEOS is easy to learn and use and its optical simulation is fast and precise.
The most important is that with OptisWorks we are capable of making optical examinations of systems of complex three-dimensional geometries. This enables us to improve even more on optical efficiency and to dissociate our lighting solutions and applications from those conventional lighting...
OptisWorks has made my job easier and more efficient and has allowed me to communicate complicated 3D laser systems in very easy-to-see and impressive colors prints. What would have taken days or weeks can be accomplished in few hours, and parts that might have been made oversized because there was no way to know exactly where the beams go can be made as small as possible.
