TNO supports OEM businesses, system designers and suppliers of modules or components in the development and production of optical components, systems and instruments. We advise our customers on manufacturability and manufacture prototypes or small series optical components and assemblies. Our workshop features the most advanced precision diamond turning lathes for the turning of i.e. metal mirrors, plastic lenses or CaF2 optics.
In for example space research or lithography, high standards are set for the used optics. Optics Manufacturing focusses on research on and application of the newest production technologies. This way, we can offer sophisticated manufacturing solutions for the use of specifically designed components like aspheric and freeform optics. The combination with 3D measurement on NANOMEFOS enables us to achieve highly accurate surfaces. Optics Manufacturing. is your specialist in the field of ultra-precision diamond turning and precision grinding of spheric, aspheric and freeform optics on non-ferro metals, crystal, polymers and glass. At TNO the combination of research facilities, production, measurement technology, available professionalism and conditioned cleanrooms makes the difference in acquiring extremely high precision and low roughness.
Optics Manufacturing. has the following technologies available: Precitech Nanoform 350, 2-axis
Precitech Nanoform 700, 5-axis
Ultra-precision diamond turning at Optics Manufacturing offers unique possibilities:
