patterning technologies from Max Levy Autograph Inc.Max Levy Autograph, Inc. (MLA), a subsidiary of II-VI Incorporated, is a manufacturer of high precision, tight-tolerance patterns on optical, metal, ceramic, and various other substrates. Advanced patterning technologies are used to delineate patterns in substrates for resolution targets, machine vision calibration, optical encoders, and quality control equipment. Other unique capabilities include in-house electro-forming and plating for generation of fine mesh patterns with no substrate and our diamond milling equipment which has generated micro-needle arrays for medical applications and aspheric surface arrays for 3D imaging applications. In addition, our proprietary and patented processes can protect products from Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) and Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS) can be applied to block specific wavelengths and pass others for unique and custom applications on radomes, ceramics, and polyimide.

MLA was founded in Baltimore in 1872 as a manufacturer of half-tone screens and etched plates for thepatterned components from Max Levy Autograph Inc.
graphic arts industry. MLA now resides in a modern 30,000 square foot facility with Class 1000 cleanrooms in Northeast Philadelphia. The company operates under the management of Lightworks Optical Systems, a subsidiary of II-VI Incorporated in the Military and Materials business segment.

Currently serving commercial and MIL-AERO customers in a variety of industries, MLA's products derive from high precision phototooling and proprietary patterning methods.
