HENRIETTA, NY- September 30, 2020- Apollo Optical Systems Inc. (AOS), a leading manufacturer of precision optics with expertise in Optical Design, Single Point Diamond Turning (SPDT) and Optical Injection Molding (prototype to mass production), announced Wednesday that it has acquired two new Diamond Turning Machines to supplement the company’s already state-of-the-art diamond turning laboratory.
Both machines are Nanoform X (3 axis: X, Z, C) lathes, manufactured by Precitech (Keene, NH). In addition, one of the machines is equipped with an FTS-5000 fast tool servo, greatly enhancing the range of freeform shapes that can be produced.
These SPDT machines benefit our customers by providing for greater throughput and allowing for a quicker response to our customers’ requirements. These ultra precise diamond turning machines will allow AOS to better address the ever growing needs for freeform optics.
AOS is constantly implementing new ways to achieve greater efficiencies and show our commitment to our customers. We are thrilled with adding this additional capacity and expanded capability.
