Opticam PM Machine Design

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Rank Pneumo has worked with the Center for Optics Manufacturing and the Center's Manufacturing Advisory Board to design a multi-axis prism grinding machine. The Opticam PM is a three axis, high precision CNC reciprocating grinder. It is designed for the automated manufacturing of glass prisms. Unique features of the design incorporate electrolytic in-process dressing1 of the finishing wheel, a frictionless hydrostatic reciprocating cylinder, and machine resident metrology to provide RQM (Real-time Quality Management).
