Fabrication of Freeforms
Optimax has developed a robust freeform optical fabrication CNC process that includes generation, high speed VIBE polishing, sub-aperture figure correction, surface smoothing and testing of freeform surfaces.
Optimax excels at grinding, polishing and coating precision optics quickly and reliably. We can deliver high precision optics in as little as one week.
There are parameters used in specifying centration of a lense and techniques used to check the location of and position the optical axis. Whether centering errors are specified in terms of decenter or wedge, it all comes back to the difference in edge thickness.
