Sharp Cut Filters (W series)

HOYA GROUP OPTICS DIVISION has developed and released a new line of sharp cut filters with top quality and excellent optical performance. The ″W series″ meets the requirements of the market in all aspects.

New Material

Extensive Processing Technology

We have established our own processing consignment network with high quality and high technology both in Japan and overseas.
In addition to rectangles and round shapes, it is possible to provide products that make use
of high technical capabilities such as trapezoidal / cylindrical shape / inside diameter (perforated).

400 mm X 400 mm

Challengeany sizes

Various type of filter size

In order to respond to your request, we provide optical filters in various shapes from small size to large size and from thin to thick. Please contact us for more details on availability which is dependent on the specific conditions required such as dimension, thickness, surface processing accuracy.

ChallengeIntegrated processing

Integrated processing network from materials to finished product

In addition to selling colored glass filters as material and polished product, we have a network of consistent processing through completion which includes mounting in rings and packaging in small boxes. By doing so, we can offer finished products in the form of your request.

ChallengeSpecial processing

Laminated processing

We also handle laminated bonded products of colored glasses with unique characteristics achieved by overlapping the wavelengths of different colored glass filters. We also can provide special filters with characteristics that colored glass filters alone cannot guarantee by laminating a resin film or polarizing film between two substrates of crown glass.

ChallengeSpecial processing

Tempered glass

For transmission filters used for high-power light sources, requirements include increasing the glass strength to prevent damage due to sudden temperature changes. We can provide products with high strength reliability against large temperature changes by adding optimum heat strengthening process to various glass materials according to purpose of use. In addition, we can propose chemical tempering (ion exchange) according to your request. For chemical tempering process, glass types are limited. Please contact us for additional details.
