Precision machinery for microfabrication & microfinishing

Axxicon uses the latest generation of ultra precision equipment in the whole spectrum of product realization. We are able to machine and finish parts with the smallest features, tightest tolerances and validate it with our high end quality inspection equipment.

Micro milling

Micro-milling or high-speed milling is our precision machining process that involves the use of very small cutting tools to produce extremely precise features and geometries in materials, such as microfluidics.

Lapping & Polishing

For optical features, mirrored surfaces and ultra flat surfaces, lapping and polishing is an essential process step. Axxicon is a specialist company in polishing plano, spherical and cylindrical surfaces. Axxicon’s operators use high end equipment to achieve roughness values in the range of a few nanometers and will have no scratches or traces of processing.
