MENTOR custom solutions can include custom LED optics, custom light guides, custom knobs, custom switches, or a unique component that combines several of MENTOR’s electronic component design and manufacture competencies. In the case of Opto, often MENTOR’s almost unique advanced capabilities allow them to design virtually and then go straight to in-house tooling and manufacture, confident that their design will manage the light exactly as predicted.

However, when component prototyping is required, various techniques are used, including rapid prototype printing, machining or even expert manual manufacture. This allows for an early assessment and unequivocal approval of the design concept.
