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.
The primary design considerations are optical material, component size, shape and manufacturing tolerances. All of these attributes are variable at the design phase and have significant impact on lens manufacturing costs and therefore are outlined in a chart.
