PROVIDENCE, R.I., Feb. 24, 2015 — Mahr Federal Inc. has announced a precision measuring station to evaluate optical components, including freeform, aspheric and spherical lenses.
Developed to provide quick 2-D and 3-D testing to support the entire lens production process, the MarForm MFU 200 Aspheric 3-D is CNC-operated with nine motorized axes, including four measuring axes.
The system includes both an interferometric point sensor for fully noncontact measurements, and a tactile probing system for surfaces in early stages of production that do not interact well with the interferometer.
The system includes built-in vibration isolation and a full machine enclosure to ensure minimal effects from the external environment.
Several popular brands of processing machines can be used with the MFU 200 to provide closed-loop control of lens grinding and polishing processes.
