Manasota Optics' Diamond Turning Equipment consists of the following Custom-Built Single Point Diamond Turning “SPDT" "Fly-Cutting" Machines. Diamond Turning materials consists of variety of Bare Aluminum 6061, 5052 and 7075, Electroless Nickel Plated Substrates, Copper, and Invar. MOI's Diamond Turning produces "plano" or flat optics.
The sizes of components can range up to 15" in length and the optical requirements are typically 1/8 wave PV or better depending on the part geometry or aspect ratios and 40-80 angstroms RMS for surface roughness.
MOI's Diamond Turning Machines can meet tight angular requirements for Polygons or scanner optics.
The Diamond Turning Machine Controllers have been upgraded to allow for quick repairs and expansion slots were added for future upgrades.
