CNC Swiss Screw Machining of Aluminum Lens Holder
With a long history of providing top quality custom mechanical components for the optics industry, Wordingham Technologies was contacted by a client in the northeast to produce an optical lens holder. Machined from 6061 aluminum, this part was manufactured from a customer supplied print using our advanced Citizen L720 Swiss turning center.
We manufactured this part while holding a .0006 of an inch concentricity and perpendicularly, and a +/- .25 degree angular tolerance. We machined the lens holder to measure precisely 1.7716″ in overall length, with a .370″ outer diameter. This component required extensive precision milling with the end pocket having a .010 thick wall while holding +/- .001. In addition, we ensured that the lens holder met precise design requirements through a series of in-process testing. All inspection requirements are detailed by the quality supervisor.
After manufacturing, the parts were black anodized per MIL-A-8625 specification. Offering tight tolerances, flawless finishes, and worry-free quality, Wordingham Technologies manufactures a series of custom optics lens holders for the optical world.
By using our Swiss screw machining technology, we are able to successfully manufacturer this part in one operation thus saving our customer money and improving quality.
