Paper Abstract

Optimax Systems Inc. improved reliability of legacy asphere polishing platforms, preserving niche capabilities at a demonstrated level. In asphere manufacturing, key tools have evolved over the years. While not as capable, older technology is able to create useful surfaces, and, for some geometries, still represented the best option. Select work waited for older machines being repaired over and over. We set out to find a modernized version of these polishing platforms. We found we could not only match the results of the 20+ year old technology, but also surpass its functionality.
