Nov 2009Docter Optics SERequest Info
An advanced molding technology used by Docter Optics GmbH enables large-scale production of optical glass components with complex geometries. All sides of a prototype optical component can be measured immediately after molding at greater than 1 million points with 1-μm resolution. The measurement methods are based on stripe projection technology and on dedicated software that permits recursive comparison of actual contours and projected light patterns to determine the best optical design. The system uses this comparison to generate the data required for modification of the mold.
