Tool Making

Tools are designed and manufactured in house. Also mould validation and volume production can be done in-house. Mould inserts are typically produced by lapping and polishing.  A roughness of 2nm Ra can be achieved with a form accuracy of 1λ

Injection Moulding

For the replication of freeform optics two in-house moulding methods can be used:

  • Injection compression moulding
  • (Vario Thermal) straight injection moulding

Depending on your product, we will select the favourable method for you.

QA

For measurement of the mould insert and/or replica’s we use either an 3D confocal Laser Microscope, Interferometer or CMM using a probe.
