The Moore Nanotechnology ultra-precision machining systems support single point diamond turning, deterministic micro-grinding, precision micro-milling, and glass press molding for the production of advanced optics including diamond turning sphere, asphere, freeform, conformal, lens array, and plano surfaces. We offer a diverse line of options and accessories to customize our machining platforms to suit our customer’s specific applications.

The most compact ultra-precision CNC diamond turning lathe. Used for the rapid production of spherical & aspheric optical lenses, mirrors, mold inserts, freeform optics, and even mechanical components.

If your application fits within a 350mm diameter window (with optional riser package), this machine may be the ideal solution for your ultra precision needs.

Achieves both sub-nanometer level surface finishes and sub-micron form accuracies directly off the machine in a wide variety of materials.


Detail specifications

The mid-size capacity ultra-precision machining system.

This system is suitable for both single point diamond turning and deterministic micro-grinding of optical elements.

Applications examples include the manufacture of components used in a wide variety of markets such as electro-optics, aerospace, defense, consumer electronics, bearing, and computer industries.

The standard model offers a 450mm diameter swing capacity, but increased swing configurations are available upon request.
