CVI Announces Next-Day Shipping of Crystal Quartz Waveplates
With over 7000 pieces in stock, optical component manufacturer CVI announced next day shipment of multiple- and zero-order crystal quartz waveplates in over 45 standard wavelengths. Orders received before 1pm can be shipped the same day from its Albuquerque, N.M. facility, the company said. Additionally, increased manufacturing throughput and improved state-of-the-art metrology allows CVI to offer rapid turnaround times for waveplates in custom wavelengths and sizes, the company said. VP of Sales and Marketing Bob Soales said, “We have been able to realize a 75 percent reduction in manufacturing cycle times for our waveplate product line. We believe this is the largest inventory of laser-grade crystal quartz waveplates in the industry. Our waveplate manufacturing processes support over 90 wavelengths from 193 nm up to 2300 nm.” CVI’s waveplate metrology ensures λ/200 retardation tolerances for the ultraviolet region and challenging custom applications, the company said.
