  • 4 different axes configurations available

Interchangeable polishing heads for high flexibility:

  • The 50 mm MRF wheel can polish small surface features and reduce edge effects.
  • The 370 mm MRF wheel has high material removal rates to cover large surfaces quickly.
  • The Pad Polisher allows for pre-polishing or smoothing:
    • Variable orbit and spin RPM
    • Variable pressure
    • 50 mm and 100 mm pad polishing heads

1. Actual machine capabilities will vary based on part geometry. Contact QED for detailed capability charts.
2. Requires Pad Head, Pad FCM, and Software License
3. Requires Freeform Polishing Software License
4. Requires Extended Range Polishing Software License

MRF Advantage

  • Works by magnetically manipulating the properties of the MR polishing fluid and adjusting the workpiece position and polishing dwell time via computer control.
  • Conforms to complex surfaces, providing the flexibility to polish aspheric and freeform shapes.
  • Significantly reduces cycle times due to its high rate of removal.
  • Maintains process stability with constant recirculation of the MR fluid (no dulling of the polishing tool).
  • Provides a completely deterministic process that can be characterized to very high precision.
  • Provides an affordable, turnkey system for precision optics manufacturing that will broaden your design options and enhance your cost effectiveness.
