Paper Abstract

Rank Pneumo has worked in cooperation with the Center for Optics Manufacturing at the University of Rochester and the Center's Manufacturing Advisory Board to develop a flexible CNC machining center for spherical lens fabrication. The prototype Opticam SM machine has been built and delivered to the Center for Optics Manufacturing. The machine is currently undergoing process and cycle development at the Center. Opticam SM experiments have demonstrated the ability to grind surfaces of less than 200 angstroms rms, subsurface damage less than 2 microns, and a surface figure better than 1 wave p-v in less than five minutes.
