The PR Hoffman 5400 DSP ensures sub-second parallelism and exceptional fractional transmitted wavefront error for the production of high-volume optics with unrivaled consistency, precision, exceptional dimensional accuracy, and surface finishes on substrates such as Fused Silica, BK-7, and other materials. The machine balances internal stresses within materials, minimizing the risks of warping or deformation for optimal consistency and repeatability on substrates up to 250 mm in diameter.

According to PG&O’s president, Dan Bukaty, Jr. “PG&O is committed to pushing the boundaries of the possible in polishing technology. Our investment in the PR Hoffman 5400 double-sided optical polishing machine reflects our dedication to innovation and our mission to provide our customers with the highest quality products in the shortest amount of time. Whether you require high-precision optical components, semiconductor wafers, medical devices, or aerospace parts, this advanced DSP technology allows us to deliver optical components with excellence, reliability, and expediency in every batch.”
