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 geometry of machines used to center lenses and to measure centering error all work in terms of the wedge case. Two important considerations are the centration of the lens and the difference in edge thickness.
