Batesville, Arkansas – January 24, 2024 – LaCroix Precision Optics is pleased to announce the addition of its new optical assembly and design departments. Since 1947, LaCroix has specialized in manufacturing precision optics, including spherical lenses, aspheres, achromats, windows, wedges, prisms, and custom optical coatings. With these new capabilities, LaCroix is solidifying its role as a vertically integrated optical solutions company.
BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS - August 26, 2021 - LaCroix Precision Optics is pleased to announce Kevin Weaver and Robert Brockway as the first apprentices in their inaugural Optics Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship. The objective of this program is to engage employees with the overall understanding of the LaCroix Precision Optics manufacturing processes. The program goals are to transfer institutional knowledge, develop future skilled leaders, and expose apprentices to new and advanced optics.
LaCroix Precision Optics is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Zemax to offer the LaCroix Cost Estimator in Zemax OpticStudio. The LaCroix Cost Estimator will provide an instant rough order of magnitude (ROM) estimate for prototype optics, assisting optical designers in achieving an estimate while designing their optics using Zemax OpticStudio.
