PRO 80 UFF

The PRO 80 UFF is ideal for polishing aspheric lenses and spherical optics up to 80mm in diameter. PRO 80 UFF allows you to polish directly after grind with high removal rates (no need to pre-polish!). This platform utilizes OptiPro's patented sub-aperture polishing system UltraForm® Finishing (UFF™). UFF involves a moving belt of polishing material wrapped around a precision compressive wheel delivering 1/2 wave p-v or better accuracies. UFF incorporates a range of precision belts from classic polyurethane to uniquely formulated materials, making it perfect for polishing a wide variety of optical glasses, ceramics, crystals, and metals such as stainless steel lens mold inserts.

Multiple advanced features on the PRO 80 UFF help companies decrease cycle times while increasing quality and throughput of aspheres:

  • Better finishing: Stiff granite machine base to provide vibration dampening
  • Faster set-ups: Easy-to-learn U Series software guides operator through process (automatic tool path optimization)
  • Process consistency and durability: Moving belt of polishing material provides 1,250mm of linear tool surface
  • Process flexibility: Variety of precision belts utilizing classic polyurethane to uniquely formulated materials ranging from 1/2 to 250 micron abrasive for grind to final polish
  • Faster cycle times: Quickly polish directly after grind with high removal rates
  • Extensive material processing: Variety of fixed and loose abrasives can be utilized to polish optical glasses, crystals, ceramics, and metals such as stainless steel lens mold inserts
  • Difficult geometries made easy: Multiple wheel options for finishing down to 5mm concave aspheres
  • Deterministic corrections: On board removal function measurements and feedback from metrology instruments for correcting rotationally symmetric or asymmetric parts
  • Safer touch-offs: Non-contact probing won't scratch polished part
  • Small footprint: Self-contained with all peripheral items within machine
  • Mobility: On wheels for easy movement, leveling feet for fast set up
  • Easy to service: Maintenance items readily accessible
The impressive capability and versatility of the PRO 80 UFF allows your company to achieve high precision polishing of aspheres or spheres with unprecedented efficiency.
