Kaleido Technology ApSRequest Info
 
Kaleido Technology will showcase its capabilities for manufacturing of ultraprecision free-form optics. Kaleido produces ultraprecision free-form mirrors for applications in the automotive, aerospace, space and defense industries.

Kaleido Technology can take a CAD file directly from a customer to produce prototype and production quantity free-form mirrors to a high degree of accuracy and surface finish. Working with glass, plastics and metals, the company produces free-form mirrors (up to 700-mm diameter) with a surface roughness of less than 5 nm rms and a slope accuracy of better than 70 µrad. These capabilities are the result of customization of an ultraprecision machining center with sensors to track its long-term temperature stability. With this information, and with in-house developed machine control software to control hardware features, the enhanced system can generate extremely smooth surfaces and complex geometries.
