son-x is a leading edge technology and component supplier in the field of ultra precision machining. The technology developed and commercialized by son-x enables direct machining of steel with single crystal diamond tools. A consistent surface quality of Ra=3nm
and a form accuracy of 100 nm can be achieved.
Ultrasonic Tooling Systems for diamond machining of steel
Contract based manufacturing service (Mirrors, Moulds, Prototypes)
Main applications are optical mould inserts for injection moulding of: Automotive LED head lights, LED illumination optics, Camera lenses, Sensor lenses
On the Photonics Moscow the second generation equipment “UTS2” with a unique frequency of >100 kHz is presented. Several mould insert examples are displayed.
son-x has two business fields:
son-x systems - offers ultrasonic tooling systems for direct diamond
machining of steel. Our unique UTS2 allows direct cutting of stainless steel with single crystal diamond tools to a highest quality level (Ra~3nm, PV~100nm);
son-x precision - offers ultra precision manufacturing service. With our long term experience in ultra precision technology and our sophisticated equipment we offer contract based manufacturing of optical components.
Our main applications are: Optical mould inserts, mirrors and prototype lenses
son-x can manufacture optical mould inserts directly in steel with ultra precise accuracy. Furthermore we produce special purpose custom mirrors up to a size of 1000 mm in diameter.
This UTS2 Ultrasonic Tooling System allows direct diamond turning of stainless steel for optical applications. For more information please contact us.
