Optics & Electro Optics

The requirement of to produce optical surfaces that transmit light correctly is widespread through Industry. ULTRA TEC has had a wide involvement with clients requiring generally flat surfaces on smaller optical sub-assembly components. Processing of flats, windows, and prisms is made straightforward with our ULTRAPOL machines, that incorporate advanced micropositioners, and are equipped with ‘Quick Release’ workholders to hold samples of most sizes, shapes and orientations firmly and accurately. In most cases surface preparation is possible without the need for waxes or cements, due to the unique design of workholders for typical and custom integrated optics, bare fiber and related applications.

For larger surfaces, the MULTIPOL polishers provide the answer for achieving optically flat (and parallel) surfaces. MULTIPOL's provide a cost-effective means of producing and refurbishing extremely flat and parallel laser rods of materials such as YAG, ruby, sapphire and other crystal materials. The system is used in conjunction with a precision polishing jig, that allows precise alignment and incorporates an independent central sample loading section. The hollow center allows a laser rod to be accurately mounted and prepared at both ends, but also facilitates use of the ULTRACOLLIMATOR optical tool, to provide alignment and overall parallelism down to a few seconds of arc.

    Versatile Precision Saw with Z-Spindle
    • Z-Spindle –  Allows for cutting depth to be altered even during operation
    • Versatility – The system may be readily converted to handle sample cutting requirements of most shapes, sizes and applications.
    • Cutting Accuracy – The use of precision lead screws on all sample feeds means cuts may be positioned accurately
    • Long Cuts & Dicing – The large work-table andl layout of the machine allows for long cuts to be achieved – perfect for failure analysis, and QA applications such as longitudinal sectioning of components. Sectioned workpieces may be an end in themselves, or the starting point for lapping and polishing
    • Most Blade Types – The system accepts a wide range of O.D. diamond and abrasive blades for standard cutting, and is readily adaptable to accept special ‘dicing’ blades for the smallest kerf.
