Metal Optics Processing

L.A. Gauge provides the finest finishing possible to all substrates it manufactures. Using planetary polishing processes and utilizing interferometric testing in a controlled environment, the expert opticians at L.A. Gauge produce extremely flat and smooth surfaces on a wide variety of geometrical shapes and sizes. Whether for in-house designs or customer-supplied specifications, prototype or production quantities, L.A. Gauge's metal optics polishing capabilities are second to none.

The L.A. Gauge optics laboratory traditionally manufactures metal optic mirrors to demanding flatness tolerances of a 1/10 wave over a 10 inch diameter face and a surface finish to 20-10 standard.
