Our precision metal mirrors also have wider applications in many other industries, where extremely accurate parts are needed. For example, we have supplied parts for fibre optic connectors, medical implants, precision instruments, environmental monitoring, spectroscopy, gas sensing, Formula 1 racing, nuclear installations, imaging, brewing and the food industry.
These customers find that conventional machining cannot give them the nanometre flatness, arc second parallelism and highly polished surfaces that they need. LBP Optics’ unique manufacturing techniques - designed for laser quality mirrors – are used to supply a wide range of specialist parts. Our precision lapped surfaces are ideal for many uses including semiconductor inspection equipment, lens moulds, precision mating surfaces for seals and alignment aids for scientific research.
Our precision diamond machining capabilities enable us to manufacture advanced shapes such as polygons, infrared domes, aspherics, spherical, cylindrical, toroidal, axicons, cones, ellipsoids and off-axis parabolics for applications including:
- Astronomy and astrophysics
- Scanning systems
- Space and airborne optics
- Thermal imaging systems
- High precision mechanical components
- Scientific components for research laboratories
- Moulds for plastic components
