Paper Abstract

In the field of mechanical fabrication, computer numerical control (CNC) of machine tools has become very mature in the past decade. The same potential exists for optical coating production, but has lagged in time due to the increased number and complexity of the parameters which have to be controlled. In the past few years, it has become possible to purchase CNC optical coating systems with reasonable capability and reliability. This paper reviews the capabilities and status of various CNC coating systems which have been surveyed.
