Paper Abstract

Center for Optics Manufacturing (COM) technology developments have been redefining the capabilities and competitive dimension of the precision optics manufacturing industry. These developments include computer-controlled deterministic microgrinder and magnetorheological finishing systems that can produce spherical, aspheric and freeform optical surface form and figure accuracy in minutes, compared to the traditional manufacturing techniques that can take weeks. COM developed computer numerically controlled machining and finishing systems are a basic necessity in the manufacturer's battle to maximize flexibility, increase competitiveness, and achieve consistent high-yield product quality.
