Complex Shaping Services

Photonics Spectra
Dec 2009
Optimax Systems Inc.Request Info
 
Optimax.jpgUsing CAD, CAM and CMM software, Optimax Systems Inc. offers complex shaping/machining services for optical lenses and nonoptical components made from glass, crystals and other brittle materials. The company adds through holes, contoured perimeters and other geometric features to enable nontypical optical assembly and packaging. It also fabricates nontraditional optical surfaces such as toroids and off-axis parabolics, and it performs deterministic polishing and correction of these surfaces to fractional wave tolerances. With multiple high-precision five-axis machining centers, the company can create almost any shape to machine code and metrology routines.

GLOSSARY
crystal
A solid with a structure that exhibits a basically symmetrical and geometrical arrangement. A crystal may already possess this structure, or it may acquire it through mechanical means. More than 50 chemical substances are important to the optical industry in crystal form. Large single crystals often are used because of their transparency in different spectral regions. However, as some single crystals are very brittle and liable to split under strain, attempts have been made to grind them very...
glass
A noncrystalline, inorganic mixture of various metallic oxides fused by heating with glassifiers such as silica, or boric or phosphoric oxides. Common window or bottle glass is a mixture of soda, lime and sand, melted and cast, rolled or blown to shape. Most glasses are transparent in the visible spectrum and up to about 2.5 µm in the infrared, but some are opaque such as natural obsidian; these are, nevertheless, useful as mirror blanks. Traces of some elements such as cobalt, copper and...
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
