Abstract
Optical components are being used more and more extensive in the most areas of production and human life, therefore improving the quality control of optical elements manufacture is high priority task when manufacturing any type of optical element. Every aspect of the production process directly impacts the final product quality and reliability level. In the process of optical elements manufacture, after determining the overall product quality requirements, the next most important thing is to clarify and implement the quality indicators of each product subsystem. So, after the quality requirements of the optical element is determined, the next step that should be done to ensure the quality of final product is measurements and testing work by the professional trained staff. The measurement and test job itself is also a system engineering, because it not only includes the metering and testing hardware (e.g. instruments, equipment, etc.) but also includes software work such as metering management and metering transmission. The quality control of optical components is a process that includes both quality management and the implementation of specific processing and testing methods. Optical component processing plants can use the following methods to improve and control the consistency of the quality of the finished optical elements: learn and use new optical component processing techniques, use numerical control technology, use advanced processing and inspection equipment, proficient in process inspection and finished product inspection methods. In this article we present an example of implementation of the quality control phase in the optical elements manufacture process.
