Syntec receives patent for technology

Syntec Optics Inc. announced Thursday it has been granted a U.S. patent for its High
Refraction Diamond Turning technology.
Most Syntec HRDT projects have been defense-related, officials at the Pavilion firm said, adding that the technology can be used in areas such as datacom, which requires asymmetric, low-cost optics with high wave sensitivity and strong heat resistance.
The firm makes precision optics solutions in-house by molding or diamond turning, said Rick Arndt, vice president for tooling and co-developer of HRDT.
“While molding is the production standard, diamond turning, which needs no mold, is a natural for rapid prototypes,” Arndt said.
Syntec president Paul Tolley, who also co-developed HRDT, said it saves projects thousands of dollars in development costs but has even greater value in accelerating time to market.
