Asphere manufacturability concerns

 - Manufacturability of aspheres is difficult using artisan-based polishing

 - Lead times are not predictable using non-deterministic methods

 

Asphere manufacturability solutions

 - Computer-controlled optics manufacturing replaces skill-intensive manufacturing process

 - MRF provides a solution for deterministic figure correction and throughput for high-precision aspheres

 - Asphere production is cost-effective and affordable
