Abstract
The need for increasingly complex optics and the demand for freeform optics with ultra-high precision specifications is growing rapidly for numerous applications. Achieving the required accuracies in freeform manufacturing still demands very long machining times, high production costs, a need for experienced, highly skilled operators as well as numerous manual interventions, tying up valuable resources while machining a small number of parts. By utilizing fully integrated optical measurement features, high accuracy long stroke fast tool, an advanced software package with built in tool path calculation and analysis as well as corrective machining functions the UPC 300 eliminates these burdens.
