CNC Glass Machining
Edmund Optics® utilizes a wide range of CNC machining equipment including ultrasonic machining and high speed cutting (HSC) technology from DMG MORI® for the machining of complex optical component geometries. CNC machines offer the highest amount of precision and flexibility when it comes to fabricating components beyond basic shapes. Our true 5-axis precision machine centers have the capability to machine lightweight structures and high aspect ratio components with specialty bevels, precision holes and inserts, and mounting interfaces. In addition to optical glass, we can machine a wide range of demanding materials including ceramics, corundum, tungsten carbide, and even composites. Some high-tech materials, such as Tungsten Carbide and composites, cannot be machined using conventional machining and can only be shaped using ultrasonic machining.
