Optical Design & Engineering R&D

Tamron develops lenses for photo, surveillance, automotive, medical, and thermal cameras and more and designs optics for a wide variety of wavelength ranges.
In response to the ever-evolving performance of image sensors (CMOS), and new applications and demands, we utilize our optical technology and various design and evaluation methods know-how that we have cultivated thus far, to continually advance the shape, material, and number of lenses to create top performing products. From innumerable combinations of placement, coating, etc., we find optimum solutions such as optical performance and size, which in turn leads to product development that meets the needs of the market. Tamron also develops technologies such as simulation of optical performance for more advanced design, equipment development for difficult assembly, optical component evaluation equipment that supports processing technology, and development of optical evaluation equipment.
In addition to the development of imaging lenses, we are also developing lighting technology and optical technology that utilizes lasers.
Through this series of developments, Tamron will continue to take on the challenge of solving future social issues and creating new value for light.
