Precision Optimal Machining: Maximizing Micro-Technology

As described on our Optical Machining page:

We make use of our 4-axis and 5-axis Hermle Machining Centres to achieve machining tolerances measured in microns. With this capability we successfully cater to the optical industry’s requirements for machined parts such as lens tubes and lens mounts. These ultra-high precision parts are machined and inspected in our temperature controlled environment.


Precision machining is crucial in any CNC machining project. And precision optical machining is increasingly crucial to the creation of modern optics.

Which is why the final inspection of an optical machining project is conducted under a microscope. This ensures the surface finishes are precise without any foreign object damage detectable. Even under the most highlighted visual inspection.
