Diamond Turned Aspheric Optics

  • Overview +

    Aspheric optics are now specified for a wide variety of industrial, defence and consumer applications. Taylor Hobson is the metrology provider of choice for aspherics manufacturers.

    Single-Point Diamond Turning (SPDT) allows high precision aspheric optics to be manufactured quickly and efficiently. Sub-wavelength form accuracy specifications mean that metrology is critical to the manufacturing process. Taylor Hobson's Form Talysurf PGI Aspherics Measurement System sets the global standard for optics users, delivering form accuracies as low as 1/10 Angstrom.
