Precision polishing optics up to two meters

QED Technologies (QED), the pioneer and unique provider of revolutionary optical manufacturing solutions, Magnetorheological Finishing (MRF®) and Subaperture Stitching Interferometry (SSI®), expands its line of standard MRF polishing systems with the introduction of its Q22-2000F.

The Q22-2000F is capable of precision polishing large monolithic or light-weighted optics up to two meters in size and can polish a wide range of geometries including planos, spheres, aspheres, freeforms, prisms and cylinders.  

QED's Q22-2000F is designed to automate the final steps of polishing and figuring with speed and determinism, and aims to reduce long lead times and unpredictability, while increasing accuracy. What previously took weeks or months to polish now has the ability to be completed in days.
