Advantages of Custom Azylinders
Based on the specially developed technology for CNC grinding and polishing processes, asphericon is able to produce acylinders with minimal surface form deviations (RMSi ≤ 0.05 µm). Matching your individual requirements, we manufacture high-quality acylindrical optics of highest accuracy with best imaging properties.
Aspherical cylinder optics have a focus line instead of a focal point due to their geometry. Free of spherical aberrations, best optical imaging qualities can be achieved. Benefit from the unique accuracy and precision of asphericon's customized acylinders.
For a maximum optical radiation output, we offer the possibility of refining acylinders with high-quality coatings. From anti-reflection to metallic layers and wavelength-specific filter coatings, we coat in-house with reasonable delivery times.
In addition to high-quality coatings, asphericon's reliable service also includes optical measurement for maximum effectiveness and longevity of your optics. Convince yourself of the high accuracy of our measuring systems. For a simple combination with other mounted optical components, we will be happy to add a high-quality mount to your optical components.
