14 Who We Do It For: Industries
Medical = 50% of Revenues Defense = 30% of Revenues Biometric = 15% of Revenues Other (Opaque Molding) = 5% of Revenues

15 Syntec Markets Medical Applications Blood Gas Analyzer: -Optical channel micro fluidic slide cell assembly Challenge: -Costly Due to Limited Life Span Syntec Solution: Reduced number of components through proprietary over-molding Integrated lubricated polymer with base to eliminate ext. lubrication step and contamination risk Extended component life by reducing wear potential Reduced overall costs Delivered from “dock to stock”

16 Syntec Markets Medical Biom Lens Pack: -Used in Vitreoretinal Eye Surgery, 130° Wide Field View Challenge: -Needed to be Precise, Small and Disposable Syntec Solution: Moved from Glass to Plastic Again, reduced number of components Reduced overall costs Delivered from “dock to stock”

17 Syntec Markets Medical Applications Are-O-Scop: -Used in Colonoscopy for Cancer Screening Challenge: -Needed to be Small and Disposable w/ 360° view Syntec Solution: Designed precision 360° view lens Again, reduced number of components Reduced overall costs Delivered from “dock to stock”

18 Defense Applications Headlight:
Syntec Markets Defense Applications Headlight: Used in HumVees (some commercial applications) Challenge: -Needed to be Reliable, Durable, DOT compliant Syntec Solution: Designed Single molded piece Introduced high polished finish Reduced overall costs

19 Defense Applications Heads Up Display (HUD): Display for Oxygen Masks
Syntec Markets Defense Applications Heads Up Display (HUD): Display for Oxygen Masks Challenge: -Needed to be Reliable & Durable Syntec Solution: Produced two different lens, 1 concave, 1 convex Utilized two different materials Reduced overall costs

20 Biometric Applications
Syntec Markets Biometric Applications Fingerprint ID: Used for Security Challenge: Diverse applications each requiring different packaging Syntec Solution: Designed one set of optics for stand-alone, embedded, USB or PCMCIA packaging Achieved low cost targets by designing from ground up Optimized plastic optics to fit in tight spaces using atypical surfaces Reduced overall inventory needs without increasing risk of stock-outs
