MRF Applications

 

Learn about how MRF improves form & figure,

improves roughness, improves surface integrity and more!

 

This month's feature case study: Batch Production of  Precision Aspheres.

Q-flex MRF platforms enable deterministic and efficient throughput for series production of aspheres. Thorlabs in Newton, New Jersey, USA has provided data from a batch of aspheres to demonstrate how MRF can be efficiently used in a production environment to manufacture high-precision aspheres.
