We have developed application-oriented solutions covering the spectrum of ultra-precision manufacturing and optics. Read here more about the process of milling.

The process of milling

Milling is the most versatile cutting process in all of machining where the only limitation is most often the creativity of the CNC program. With the rotating tool and the fixed or slow-moving prismatic work piece almost any shape can be created. Milling with mono-crystalline diamond provides the best possible wear resistance in any non-ferrous material thus optimized tool life, minimizing tool change time and improved overall tool economy. Application area is wide, ranging from milling of haptics for intra-ocular lenses to milling of lens arrays preferably on air bearing spindle machines.
