A third generation replication machine has been developed to allow mass production of high quality holograms using DuPont holographic recording films. Improved coupling methods of film to the flat-plate masters are described. The operating features and production capabilities of this machine are discussed. An example of a reflection holographic optical element produced using this machine and associated processing equipment are given.
