PRO 160P+ High Speed Spherical Lens Polisher with In-Process Tool Truing

  • Overview

    PRO 160P+ Overview

    The PRO 160P+ is an enhanced version of the PRO 160P. In addition to having a vibration isolated granite core and unique modular concept, the PRO 160P+ features dual lower spindles (work spindle and truing spindle). This allows for in-process truing of the polishing tool to be programmed in OptiPro’s user friendly P Series software, increasing overall manufacturing efficiency for spherical optics up to 160mm.

    Top quality machine components and high performance software on the PRO 160P+ help companies achieve faster cycle times of high precision spherical optics:

    • Dual lower spindles: Truing spindle (lower left) and work spindle (lower right) allow for tool truing operation to be performed automatically after polishing cycle
    • Better polishing: Stiff granite machine base to provide vibration dampening
    • Faster set ups: Easy-to-learn, intuitive P Series software with four custom chainable process cycles
    • User-friendly interface: Built in help menus with on board graphic guidance
    • Versatility: In addition to spherical optics, capable of dome polishing
    • Extensive material processing: Polish a wide variety of optical materials to angstrom-level quality by utilizing different combinations of slurries and polyurethane pads
    • Exceptional ergonomics: Aide in streamlined operation
    • Energy efficient: Servos turn off automatically
    • Easy cleanup for fast slurry changeover: All stainless steel containment makes it easy to clean, saving time and money when switching from one job to another
    • Convenience and confidence: In-process polishing tool correction and truing can be programmed and performed in radius, sag and fringes directly on the polisher, saving time during job setup and ensuring desired polishing results
    • Tooling flexibility: Available with optional UltraSmooth Finishing (USF) capability for polishing aspheres
