ASPHERE METROLOGY ON JOINT INVESTIGATIONS

On March 6th and 7th the High Level Expert Meeting (HLEM) 2012 was organized by the UPOB competence center in Braunschweig, Germany. This year’s meeting was themed “Asphere Metrology on Joint Investigations”. Producing functional surfaces to the highest degree of accuracy, and characterizing them by means of measurement techniques, calls for efforts in which various approaches and methods have to be linked together. This is exactly what was being done and preparation to and during last meeting.

During the meeting 2 aspheres measurements were compared using different measuring methods and techniques. The Isara 400, developed by IBS Precision Engineering, was one of the machines used for these measurements, ultimately resulting in better lenses in the future!
