Lens Expo (OPIE 2015)

April was a busy month for trade shows and conferences. During the week of 22 April Precitech along with Taylor Hobson exhibited at the Lens Expo (OPIE 2015) in Yokohama, Japan. On display in our booth was our latest small frame lathe, the Nanoform X. Having a machine present generated a lot of excitement in the booth throughout the week. Precitech also exhibited at Defense Security and Sensing in Baltimore, MD during the week of 22 April. At this exhibition we focused on our innovative infrared lens manufacturing processes including Silicon Diffractive and High Speed Germanium machining.

Precitech also attended two conferences in India. The first was held from 16-17 April at Anna University in Chennai and focused on Recent Trends in Manufacturing Technology. Precitech had a keynote presentation during this conference on the topic of "New Applications in Ultra Precision Machining".

The second conference was the "Hands on Workshop on Diamond Turning for S&T Applications" held at CSIO in Chandigarh from 20-21 April. This event was 100% focused on diamond turning and brought together over 50 national leaders from academia, research, and industry. During the workshop Precitech presented "Precision Surface Development by Single Point Diamond Turning", and the CSIO team provided hands on demonstrations of flat, sphere, and aspheric surface generation by diamond turning.
