How to Get a Quote for Configurations/Variations not Listed

We offer premium products at competitive prices, ensuring both performance and value advantages once in production. Each product is guaranteed to meet the specifications outlined on the datasheet. If you are looking to purchase a product with performance specifications beyond or not listed on the website, it may be due to the following reasons:

  1. Need Tighter Specification: If your application requires performance values more tightly controlled than the listed range between minimum and maximum, this is a yield issue. Consequently, the price will be higher.
  2. No Previous Orders: If the desired variation has not been ordered before, we can typically accommodate small changes with a reasonable Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) fee. For example, special fiber types or unique wavelengths may require a dedicated Anti-Reflective (AR) coating run. The NRE fee will be refunded once the order reaches a certain quantity threshold.
  3. Cost Considerations: Some variations may be deemed too expensive to produce, often due to high manufacturing costs in small quantities rather than technological limitations. However, if you have the budget, we can produce it under an NRE arrangement. We will perform design and prototyping and provide a detailed report of the results, allowing you to decide whether to proceed with production. Providing application details may help us find the most suitable approach. We have a strong track record of meeting anticipated specifications under NRE agreements.
