Achieve the Impossible

MRF polishing systems are the industry standard for the best in optical polishing. These tools integrate with existing manufacturing cells to polish flat, spherical, aspherical and even freeform optics with precisions ranging from a few fringes to the limit of available metrology. We have a polishing solution that will fit your shop needs and help you solve your most difficult polishing challenges.

Our latest generation of MRF machines are based on the breakthrough Q-flex platform. Q-flex machines offer flexible, scalable performance with all of the legendary, deterministic performance of MRF. With MRF systems from QED Technologies, you can quickly polish spherical and plano optics to better than lambda/20. Polish aspheric surfaces to high-precision with no greater effort than for spherical surfaces. Achieve better than 10 angstrom rms microroughness. And get it right every time.
