Paper Abstract

DAMA Optical Machines of Darmstadt, Federal Republic of Germany, has had a 30-year tradition in the construction of optical machines. An experienced team of employees is always at the service of customers all over the world. All new technologies are thoroughly tested in our own test shops. As soon as a perfected type of construction is achieved, a new optical machine is produced in series after having been modified and tested under hard and continuously severe conditions. This turns out to be a great advantage for all customers who have right to demand reliable machines and who do not want to be used as guinea-pig. During the last years many a revolutionary idea has been postponed in order to be put on the market as a perfect machine at a later date. You will remember that more than 10 years ago when diamond lapping was being introduced by the leading manufacturers there were no suitable diamond-pellets available. It is only within the last five years that this modern method of glass machining has become prevalent. At the present time there is no cheaper method and I dare say there will be none in the future.
