Precision Drives JML Optical

It’s been a very exciting time in this industry,” Bob Bicksler, president and CEO of JML Optical, said. “Sophisticated electronics, matched up with software, has resulted in a tremendous transformation.”

JML has undergone a transformation of its own since Bicksler and COO Gregg Sadwick acquired the company from founder Joe Lobozzo three years ago. The company has invested in its 80 employees with training and new equipment to help design, manufacture and ship spherical and flat lenses in sizes ranging from two millimeters to 18 inches in diameter.jml126

Each job gets its own attention to detail. The entire process, cut to polish, depends on the project, said Gary Clark, JML vice president of marketing and business development, in a prepared statement.

“The time it takes to make a precision optical element varies from three to twelve weeks,” Clark said. “The time span is driven by the degree of precision needed, the specific optical glass used, the features of the element and the current work load in manufacturing.”
