Diamond-Turned OpticsSyntec Optics has developed deep expertise in diamond turning, mold manufacturing and design for manufacturability. We offer the right method for your application, including Single Point-Diamond Turning for items like plastic plano prisms with our patented High Refraction Diamond Turning (HRDT) technology. Customers can count on repeatable results to sub-micron levels, whether we are making prototype diamond turning optics in less than four weeks or creating custom molds for automated molding equipment. Our core diamond turning equipment includes several state-of-the-art machines for a large range of part sizes. All configurations have a C-Axis for great flexibility in diamond turning complex shapes, including freeform, cylinders and lens arrays, as well as spheres, aspheres, toroids, parabolas, ellipses, diffractives and plastic plano prisms.

Diamond turning prototypes reduce the total time and cost for product development by overlapping the time needed to create/change molds. Once developed, if projected volumes are low, diamond-turned parts either eliminate or defer the need for a mold, e.g., until usage reaches certain levels.

Complete metrology lab lets us systematically test to ensure perfect parts and optimized machine performance (contact profilometry and CMM equipment to measure surfaces plus high-resolution interferometers, including white light, to analyze light deformation). State-of-the-art temperature/humidity controlled environment maintains even the tightest tolerances. A full tool room with milling, grinding, Plano polishing and EDM capabilities, both wire and die sink, allows us to design and build custom diamond turning optics.

Our Single Point Diamond Turning (SPDT) technicians are well versed on a number of highly sophisticated machines, ensuring the highest precision and accuracy. Due to the custom nature of our work, we have the ability to quickly adapt and change to suit our customer’s unique needs. We tackle and successfully deliver an extensive variety of custom diamond turning optics.
