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.JML Optical Read More >
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.Operations Manager Sydor Optics
The precision of the PRO Tower has enhanced our optical metrology capabilities. Its rigid structure and active dampening system provides a very stable metrology platform, even in a busy shop floor environment. We especially appreciate the automatic radius location feature which saves time when testing multiple parts.Kirk Warden, Executive Vice President LaCroix Optical Co.
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.Ted Turnquist, General Manager Meller Optics Inc.
