Passion for Precision
The department "Fine Machining and Optics" deals with the research and development of technologies for the production and machining of precision components. With our know-how as well as the latest machine and software technology, we consider the entire process chain - from tool design to the design and simulation of manufacturing processes to the production of prototypes. Our technology portfolio includes automated fine machining, diamond cutting, ultra-precision grinding, polishing, micro- and nanostructuring as well as the molding of high-precision glass optics. As an application-oriented research institute, we work on concrete questions and implement the research results directly in industrial practice for the benefit of the project partners. We offer cooperation within the framework of publicly funded R&D projects and bilateral industrial projects.
