Precitech At A Glance   RECENT NEWS


Precitech designs and manufactures ultra precision machining solutions for freeform diamond turning, milling, and grinding which are used to produce optical lenses, mold inserts, mirrors, and precision mechanical components. Our machines produce rotationally symmetric, asymmetric, freeform, and sculpted geometries with form tolerances in the sub-micron range and nanometer surface finishes.

Why grind...?
Diamond turn tungsten carbide (tc) and other hard-to-machine materials with laser-assisted machining
Why grind tungsten carbide when Precitech and Micro-LAM enable you to diamond turn it?Diamond turning has many advantages over the conventional grinding method. With demonstrated feed rates up to 6 mm per minute, the finishing of our standard test part takes less than a minute. Additionally, diamond turning is a deterministic process and well-known techniques can be used to quickly manufacture even complex diffractive (kinoform) molds. The Nanform Xtc is capable of generating surfaces under 5 nm Sa and 150 nm PV. Compared to traditional grinding, a part requiring minimum post polishing can be made in minutes instead of hours.

In this interview, Jeff Roblee, VP of Technology, and Ed Freyenhagen, Director of Engineering, talk about key applications for ultra precision machining in the automotive industry and the enabling technologies that make realizing them possible.   (Read More)

Precitech along with Micro-LAM, Taylor Hobson, and Zygo recently exhibited at OptoTaiwan. On display were the Zygo Compass tool and PGI Dimension and Luphos Scan from Taylor Hobson. Precitech released and had on display its new machine the Nanoform Xtc for diamond turning tungsten carbide and other hard to machine materials. Several live laser assisted machining demonstrations were held in the booth (in the attached picture “red lights” on the laser controller indicate it is running). Precitech also held a seminar on our new process for diamond turning “no color” molds in which attendance was standing room only.



Precitech announces a
PEPS® II-VX retrofit on installed machines and as an option on all new machines.

PEPS® II-VX
Active on machine vibration isolation
and precision leveling system


PEPS® II-VX is a digital non-contacting, height control and active vibration cancellation system. A version ideally suited for ultra precision machining, was jointly developed by Precitech and the vibration experts at TMC. PEPS® II-VX works with the existing pneumatic vibration isolation system eliminating the mechanical height valve and height sensing linkage. The result is a first-of-its-kind active on-machine vibration isolation and precision leveling system. (Read More)
