II-VI Incorporated – LuphoScan becomes standard in the II-VI process of providing fused silica aspheres in volume production


II-VI has long been a global leader in IR materials, supplying the CO2 laser market with optics for high power systems.  In order to address the rapidly growing 1 micron laser market, II-VI has invested in state-of-the-art machining and metrology systems in order to produce fused silica aspheres.  The most recent purchase is the LuphoScan 260.  This ultra-precise, non-contact measurement system has the capability to take three-dimensional measurements of aspheric surfaces. 

The LuphoScan 260 takes three-dimensional measurements that ensure the parts meet surface requirements over 100% of the optic.  Also, because this system is a non-contact metrology method, it ensures the surface of the optic is not damaged during metrology.  These two capabilities allow II-VI to provide the highest quality fused silica optics to its customers.

It is critical to II-VI’s production process that the LuphoScan 260 takes quick and accurate measurements.  With an average measurement time of 5 minutes per optic, the LuphoScan is able to provide quick feedback without delaying production.  Because of all the capabilities that the LuphoScan 260 provides, it has become a standard in the II-VI process of providing fused silica aspheres in volume production to the level of quality that its customers have come to expect.

II-VI Incorporated, a global leader in engineered materials and opto-electronic components, is a vertically integrated manufacturing company that develops innovative products for diversified applications in the industrial, optical communications, military, life sciences, semiconductor equipment, and consumer markets. Headquartered in Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, with research and development, manufacturing, sales, service, and distribution facilities worldwide, the Company produces a wide variety of application-specific photonic and electronic materials and components, and deploys them in various forms including integrated with advanced software to enable our customers.
