As Machines Improve, Meller Optics Keeps Coming Back
Ted Turnquist of Meller Optics, a provider of high precision optics for industry and defense, discusses the company's long history working with OptiPro and why OptiPro continues to exceed his expectations. From Meller's first machine purchase back in the early 1990's to their recent collaboration with OptiPro on a Navy project, Ted emphasizes OptiPro's responsiveness and technological advancements as some of the reasons why his company keeps coming back.
Teaming up with OptiPro has been one of the best decisions we've made.
The combination of the PRO 80 UFF and the two larger UFF platforms we’ve invested in gives our company the capability to fabricate thousands of aspheres a year at an affordable price.
To ensure that their manufacturing capabilities and capacities are as impressive as ever, Esco Optics worked with OptiPro to implement the latest CNC optical grinding, polishing, and metrology solutions.
In 2003, Janos Technology purchased the eSX 125 Twin to grind IR materials such as silicon, germanium, and chalcogenide. 10 years later, the machine still performs as good as the day it was first installed.
JML Optical Enhances Capabilities with eSX 150 Optical Grinder and ePX 200 High Speed Polisher
JML Optical purchased the eSX 150 CNC optical grinder and ePX 200 CNC high speed polisher and as a result, the company is polishing larger diameter spherical optics, greatly reducing cycle times and significantly improving the surface finish of optical components.
Running flawlessly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week since the install
The Glassmaster 520 was the first brand new pitch polishing machine purchased by Sydor Optics over 10 years ago. That machine has been running flawlessly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week since the install. We purchased 2 more units 3 years ago and hope to purchase more new machines this year. Glassmaster machines are reliable and produce 1/10 wave and 1/20 wave optics consistently.
OptiPro is a phenomenal organization
OptiPro is a phenomenal organization that is continuing to grow and gain respect throughout the industry. In addition, OptiPro U is an extremely helpful asset that OptiPro offers to its customers.

The flexibility of the eSX 150 increases our machining capabilities
Meller Optics has been a loyal customer of OptiPro Systems from the early days, when we purchased their first 5-Axis machine. We have since bought two more OptiPro machines, including the eSX 150. The flexibility of the eSX 150 increases our machining capabilities, and their technical support and service has always been exceptional. Best of all, they are located in the USA.
