When no one else can Imagine It, Design It or Build It...Raytheon ELCAN is your total global solution. Our customers, who are leaders in their fields, turn to Raytheon ELCAN to overcome challenges that other suppliers have refused to attempt.

Imagine being able to partner with a company that made it possible for:

  • IMAX to overcome the challenges of intense heat and the risk of lens explosion to design & manufacture a revolutionary projection system that is still the most advanced, highest precision and most powerful projector ever built Read more >>
  • Panavision to fulfill their "wish list" set of specifications for a revolutionary new lens system (which subsequently won at the Academy Awards)- one their optical supplier at the time refused to attempt Read more >>
  • Imaging Dynamics Company to turn their cocktail-napkin concept into a cost-effective, manufacturable digital radiography solution Read more >>

Each of these revolutionary products has a single thing in common - they rely on Optics by ELCAN.

Design is the most critical step. The key to optical design is to start with manufacturing in mind and work backward to the optimum design. By including Raytheon ELCAN early, as part of your Integrated Product Team, the design and prototype phase of your project will benefit from years of production experience. Raytheon ELCAN's experience in all aspects of optical fabrication provides you design for manufacturability from the beginning. This approach can shorten program cycle time and produce more cost effective and reliable products in record time.
