PCO S.A. is among the most innovative companies of the defence industry in Poland. It posseses modern technical equipment and technology of production of the most modern optoelectronic devices.
Among the most modern technologies used in production processes are:
PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY OF OPTICAL ELEMENTS USING CNC MACHINES AND HARD SUBSTRATE.
Polishing surface on hard substrate is accomplished using a tool in the shape of a bowl or mushroom with appropriate geometry and a fixed (glued) polyurethane film.
PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY FOR ASPHERIC OPTICAL ELEMENTS.
PCO S.A. is unique on a national scale in terms of production technology of aspheric elements operating in visible light and in infared. Introduction of this technology has created an opportunity to design optical systems of new and better parameters than previously achieved.
OPTICAL ELEMENTS VACUUM COATING TECHNOLOGY.
The process of transferring thin optical films to optical elements is performed using a high-vacuum apparatus – AWP – equipped with a source of thermal evaporation and electron guns.
MECHANICAL PART PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY USING CNC MACHINES.
The specificity of technological processes performed in the Department of Mechanical Part Production involves a high degree of complexity of shapes of the produced parts and high standards concerning dimensional accuracy and surface condition. currently ~70% of mass-produced mechanical parts are made on these machines. This significantly reduces the number of operations, limits preparation-completion and performance times.
FINAL ASSEMBLY TECHNOLOGY FOR THERMAL IMAGING DEVICES.
The Final Product Launch Department deals with product tuning and adjustment. It is equipped with highly sophisticated electronic equipment and stations for SMD components assembly that are protected against the influence of electrostatic charges. Adjustment and control stations are subject to periodic inspections by measurement services and are located in air-conditioned rooms.
TECHNOLOGY FOR TESTING AND ACCEPTANCE OF FINISHED PRODUCTS.
The department for testing products – the Test Station– is equipped with measurement stations and instrumentation necessary to conduct acceptance-approval and periodic testing of the products manufactured at PCO S.A.
