Paper Abstract

Computer Aided Manufacturing, CAM systems for optical fabrication are emerging. As the technology advances optical surface manufacturing will move away from its present labor intensive status and allow the U.S. optical industry to regain an advantage in optical manufacturing. This paper describes a specific CAM Optical Fabrication System, CAM OFS, suitable for the manufacture of spherical surfaces. We also discuss the advantage optical CAM systems present to the optical designer in terms of accurate modeling of a manufactured optical system prior to its actual manufacture.
