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.   AZO Network recently conducted an interview interview "Precitech Solutions for the Automotive Industry" with Jeff Roblee, VP of Technology, and Ed Freyenhagen, Director of Engineering.

Precitech recently exhibited at Photonics West in San Francisco. On display in Precitech’s booth was our Nanoform X on a TMC SEM-Base active vibration cancellation platform. Also on display was a laser assisted machining device from Micro-LAM along with diamond turned infrared and tungsten carbide samples.  We also conducted an in booth DIFFSYS training session.

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

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.
