SyntecOptics.com is your one-stop shop for custom optomechanical components. From optics housing to optics barrels to optics mounts and stages, our experienced team is ready to assist our customers with their projects.
These optomechanical components require a very tight fit between the OD of the cells and the ID of the barrels. The customers often want a fit of .0002-.0005 between the cells and barrels in order to optimize the performance of the finished unit. Our processes work well while maintaining reasonable pricing.
Many Optical Systems require barrels, spacers, and retainers for assembly. Here at Wordingham, we specialize in custom barrels, spacers, and retainers. We take pride in our knowledge of custom thread fits and have the personnel and machines necessary to produce highly toleranced quality parts at a reasonable price.
In order to run 20% glass filled Ultem retainer at high production volume and low pricing, we have to overcome the usual challenges that this material presents as well as figure out a new and different way to run this in a lower cost manner. The part was larger than the standard retainers we run unattended.
Wordingham has developed custom manufacturing processes for Teflon filled Delrin material that is quite expensive. The part we make are very tightly toleranced, both for size and for GD&T callouts. Since the material is quite expensive, we need to minimize scrap parts to keep pricing in line with customer expectations.
These parts are often custom machined as two separate parts, then assembled and machined further as a matched set. The plating can vary to a black nickel over electroless nickel, which is difficult to achieve as far as the cosmetics needed on these large parts. Our process worked and was controllable and repeatable.
Possessing fourth and five-axis cutting capability Wordingham Technologies is dedicated to providing our clients with the most innovative, high-quality multi-axis milling services for their custom optics applications. Additionally, we offer CAD/CAM programming and design review, cellular manufacturing, and print review.
The headliner L-720 equipped with 7-axis capabilities with up to 12 live tools turning and up to 7 ID work tools, can maintain (+/-) .0001. This machine tool is equipped with the powerful Mitsubishi 700 Control. Full servo axes and advanced technologies enable faster machining operations while reducing idle time by 40%.
In today’s global market, quality is expected. Wordingham Technologies makes quality an art form. This commitment has been at the core of our company for thirty-two years. Since virtually everything we produce is a vital element of a precision system, our custom approach to quality makes difference.
Offering top-quality machining services, Wordingham Technologies manufactures critical-to-function custom optics components used within the medical industry. With a strong reputation for producing precision instrumentation, we were contacted by a client located in Germany to construct a thermal block test plate.
Using our custom machining capabilities and experience, Wordingham Technologies uses CNC milling to manufacture an aluminum filter wheel for a customer in the optics industry. Our MORI Seiki DCG Vertical Mill is used for the CNC milling of the filter wheel itself, as well as for a stainless steel bushing used with the filter wheel.
