Diamond turning machine helps business

G-S PLASTIC OPTICS once again expands its precision manufacturing capabilities with the latest diamond turning technology with the announcement of the recent integration of a Precitech Nanoform® 200 machine. This two-axis aspheric contouring machine with real-time operating system will be used for single point diamond turning. The work center is also equipped with a slow tool servo that enables the company to rapidly manufacture large departure freeform optics.

By bringing this capability in-house, G-SPO can offer its customers improved operational efficiency and delivery times, specifically in the realm of rapid prototyping and limited production runs of polymer optics. The company now has in-house capability to provide diamond turned and injection molded prototypes, production injection molding, thin film and reflective coatings.
