Micro Milling / Micro Grinding

Freeform diamond turning takes on new meaning with the advent of micro milling and micro grinding capabilities. By incorporating a high speed tool spindle into a 4-axis diamond turning machine, freeform design can invade areas once thought impossible for the optical designer. Furthermore, this capability simplifies and improves efficiency and accuracy for designs that once required complicated tooling and assembly. This technology transcends optics by affording us the capability of creating precision structures and microstructures for a whole range of applications.
