Paper Abstract

With the development of new, high precision optics production machinery there is a need to re-examine tolerancing of cosmetic standards, physical dimensions and optical performance. This paper will deal with some of the tolerancing trade-offs developed at Plummer Precision Optics, which have proven successful in reducing manufacturing costs without adversely affecting optical performance.
