New Expansion Complete – Precision Flat Sapphire Windows

CMM ZYGO Guild OpticsGuild Optical Associates has finished our newest expansion. The precision sapphire flat lab includes a new Mitutoyo CNC Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), a new 12″ aperture Zygo Verifire Interferometer, and multiple large diameter Lapmaster grinding and polishing lappers. 

The new expansion will allow Guild Optics to further our capabilities in large precision flat and shaped optical windows. 

Shaped Sapphire Windows – We can create nearly any shape and size sapphire windows. The new CMM allows our techs to verify the shape down to a micron level. Reports can be supplied to confirm that the shape of the optical window is exactly within tolerance of the specifications. 

Large Diameter Precision Flat Sapphire Windows – Our new 12″ Zygo Interferometer allows Guild Optics to verify the flatness of our 6″ to 12″ diameter sapphire windows. The military optics market is growing for large aperture optical components, and we are continuing to lead the way as the authority in sapphire optics. When coupled with our CMM, Guild can now deliver big precision flat shaped optics with full reports and confirmation to drawing requirements.
