Coating and Filter Technology

To fully derive a lens performance in accordance to various purposes, an optimal coating needs to be applied in addition to optical lens design technology.
By applying a coating on the lens surface various effects and functions can be achieved such as optical performance enhancement and surface protection.
TAMRON conducts lens and coating development for various applications, for instance, surface protection for photographic lens, durability enhancement for automotive camera, and surveillance camera.
Moreover, TAMRON is holding a uniform coating technology for wide curved surfaces on wide-angle or fish-eye lenses. Recently, to achieve a coating technology suitable new fields, Tamron is developing a filter/coating technology capable of precisely transmitting a specific wavelength for medical or fluorescence imaging with laser.
