Paper Abstract

A number of papers have been presented on the merits of CNC (computer numerical control) diamond turning of aspheric optical components. This paper will describe the design and operating characteristics of a CNC single point diamond fly cutter, showing how CNC can be equally effective for producing highly accurate piano optical components.
