Who we are
LBP Optics is a specialist manufacturer of metal mirrors for industrial and scientific applications.
Bought by infrared optics and components manufacturer ULO Optics in 2017, we now offer a full range of laser optics and beam delivery equipment, manufactured across three sites. We also have increased manufacturing capacity, extended metrology capability, and additional technical expertise and resources.
In August 2019 LBP Optics acquired leading diamond machining specialists Symons Mirror Technology. This acquisition brings us over 30 years’ expertise in the manufacture of highly accurate optical and mechanical components with extremely demanding specifications including spherical, toroidal, off-axis parabolas, polygons and pyramid scanning mirrors.
LBP Optics has been manufacturing since 1990 and has unrivalled experience and expertise in the design, manufacture and repair of a unique range of standard and custom made mirrors.
Many of our staff have been with us for 25 years+ and we pride ourselves on giving all customers an excellent service, whatever your requirements. Our team is knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and we will do our best to meet your delivery dates on both small and large quantities.
Chemically polished to a super-smooth finish and with a range of optical coatings, our unique range of mirrors are widely used in many infrared applications, gas sensing, medical and dental lasers, high power pulsed and CW CO2 lasers, fiber lasers, laser cutting and welding systems and UV and visible reflectors.
