1) Q-flex Modularity Enables Rapid Configuration Changeover

mrf application 7 pict1

 Q-flex enables fast changeovers:

  • MRF Head changes in < 15 min
  • MRF FCM changes in < 15 min
  • Less downtime = higher throughput


Fast Changeovers enable:

  • Wider range of process options
  • Greater potential for process optimization


Which leads to:

  • More efficient production
  • Wider range of capabilities

Not possible on Q22-X/Y!




Two new features of the Q-flex platform enable powerful new MRF capabilities

Modularity of Polishing Wheels (MRF Heads) and Delivery System (MRF FCM) allows:

  • Rapid configuration changeover: Change wheels quickly and  Change fluids quickly

  • Multiple wheel orientations: Traditional (rotational polishing) and  Rotated 90º, which enables full freeform raster polishing


In this case study, we combine these new features to create a mild freeform optic with

  • Ultra-high precision

  • Ultra-low levels of mid-spatial frequencies
