Paper Abstract

To fulfil the requirements of today's high performance cine lenses aspheres are an indispensable part of lens design. Among making them manageable in shape and size, tolerancing aspheres is an essential part of the development process. The traditional method of tolerancing individual aspherical coefficients results in unemployable theoretical figures only. In order to obtain viable parameters that can easily be dealt with in a production line, more enhanced techniques are required. In this presentation, a method of simulating characteristic manufacturing errors and deducing surface deviation and slope error tolerances will be shown.
