Metal Optics Processing

L.A. Gauge's metal optics polishing capabilities are second to none for prototype and production orders. Using planetary polishing processes and utilizing interferometric testing in a controlled environment, the expert opticians at L.A. Gauge achieve superior flatness requirements on a wide variety of geometrical shapes and sizes.

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.
