OJSC «Plant «Optic» was founded in 1970, it is located in Lida, Grodno region, the Republic of Belarus.
The organization of the enterprise took into account the favorable territorial location, sustainable provision of energy resources, the availability of free qualified personnel. OJSC «Plant «Optic» was a member of the Union «Rubin» and has closely cooperated with the leading optical enterprises — LZOS (Lytkarino), IPZ (Izium), LOMO (Saint-Petersburg), MELZ ( Moscow), BelOMO (Minsk), and others.
The original specialization of the enterprise was the production of optical components for the compilation of military and space equipment, photography and camera equipment, opto-electronic devices and opto-mechanical devices for special purposes, devices for scientific purposes, photography and camera equipment, devices for medical equipment and the production of optical glass and spectacle blanks. In addition, its own glassmaking workshop was built, in which press-cutting of blanks from glass cuttings was mastered, as well as pressing of spectacles blanks from glass BOK-3 welded in bathroom furnaces. During the years of the Unified Union the plant has produced optical and spectacle blanks, optical parts (prisms, lenses, plates and mirrors, discs made of electrovacuum glass, fiber optic plates and tapers, flexible bundles for the medical industry, laser active elements from crystals of KGW, tubes, rods and capillaries from glass).
Вased on the assumption that the plant possesses high-performance technology and has qualified personnel of workers and engineers in the field of glassmaking and machining in 1991, the reprofiling of production and expansion of the output of civil and medical products begins.
At present, the main activity of OJSC «Plant «Optic» is the production of geometric optics — prisms and lenses of various configurations, plates, flat and spherical mirrors, light filters, wedges, tubes, rods, components for optical instruments and photographic equipment, laser-, medical- and scientific research equipment, spectacle lenses of various classifications. The manufacture of mirrors for dental, guttural and ENT devices, test lenses for ophthalmologist’s sets, ophthalmologic three-mirror lenses according to Goldman and four-mirror lenses according to Van Beuningen were mastered and put into production. Besides, we serially produce the compressories (trichineloscopies) applied in veterinary.
An important and promising direction of the enterprise’s activity is glass manufacturing. In order to increase the competitiveness of products and reduce the time of its production, as well as reduce dependence on imports, the company constantly develops new brands of optical glasses. Our specialists have developed a new spectacle glass BOK-3UV, produced in the form of spectacle blanks. Spectacle blanks almost completely absorb UV-B radiation and significantly weaken UV-A radiation, exceeding by these characteristics the glasses of well-known foreign firms. A qualitatively new characteristic of glass BOK-3UV is the eyes protection against ultraviolet radiation, which is especially dangerous in the wavelength area shorter than 320 nm while maintaining high transparency for visible rays.
The company has preserved and developed a unique production of fiber optic products used in the creation of night vision devices, laser range finders, target designators, guidance devices: fiber-optic plates, tapers, bundles. The main consumers are Russia, Germany, India.
OJSC «Plant «Optic» grows potassium-gadolinium tungstate monocrystals, doped by neodymium ions and produces laser active elements from them, which are used for generating laser radiation.
OJSC «Plant «Optic» accepts orders for metalworking. The enterprise has a production base for performing special turning, milling, locksmithing and welding works, which makes it possible to manufacture various types of machining tools and accessories according to customer documentation with the necessary technical requirements.
In the company store of OJSC «Plant «Optic» you can buy lamps, consumer goods, spectacle lenses and ready-made glasses. In addition, you can order prescription glasses. Therefor, in our store is a wide range of spectacle frames.
OJSC «Plant «Optic» is a modern dynamically developing enterprise, which has established a reputation as a reliable partner that delivers products not only to the domestic market, but also to Russia, the CIS countries and the European Union, the United States.
OJSC «Plant «Optic» is a regular participant of specialized exhibitions: in the Republic of Belarus — International Specialized Exhibition «Healthcare of Belarus», International Exhibition Of Arms And Military Machinery «MILEX»; in the Russian Federation — Moscow International Optical Exhibition «MIOF», International Exhibition of Means and State Security «Interpolitex», International Specialized Exhibition of Laser, Optical and Optoelectronic Technologies «Photonics. World of Lasers and Optics», International Military-Technical Forum «Army».
The main goal of the management is to increase production efficiency, maintain the achieved level of quality, increase the competitiveness of the products, and meet the requirements and expectations of the consumer.
The Quality Management System is functioned in the company in conformity with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008.
