Break-Through Ultra-Precision Machining Platform Enables Realization of Next Generation AR/VR/MR, Camera Module, and Electric Vehicle Optical Designs

SWANZEY, N.H., Jan. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Moore Nanotechnology Systems ("Nanotech"), a leading global supplier of ultra–precision machining systems, announced today the release of their next generation ultra–precision machining platform, the 250UPL MP. This solution is configurable for all sub–nanometer, ultra–precision Single Point Diamond Turning (SPDT), grinding and milling applications.

Optical mold–tool makers demand higher–quality surface finishes to support the fidelity of optical systems now common in smart phone, AR/VR/MR and automotive applications. The current generation of ultra–precision machines in use today have reached their maximum potential. A clean–sheet design was required to break through to the next level of performance, and Nanotech's 250UPL MP meets and exceeds these requirements.

Mark Boomgarden, Nanotech's President and CEO, explained, "We work with the leading camera–module and optical–component suppliers around the world to gain mid and long–term insight to their product and technology requirements, which is then used as input to our own multi–year development roadmap." Boomgarden continued, "It became clear that the industry needs a machine–tool platform that can extend the boundaries of ultra–precision machining capabilities, and they need it now. Building upon years of success in this segment, our technical staff stepped up to the challenge and delivered Nanotech's 250UPL MP. This is one of many new product innovations you will see from Nanotech over the next 12–18 months."

Paul Vermette, Nanotech's Vice President of Engineering and new product development, added, "Success in this market comes down to delivering a solution grounded in sound process knowledge. Our investment in a process development center, very near the University of North Carolina at Charlotte's campus, has been an invaluable component in our product and technology development." Vermette continued, "When we come to market with a new machine like the 250UPL MP, we know that we're delivering more than a machine, we're delivering a solution that solves real–world, complex challenges the optical tool–making industry faces daily."

Scott Gerhart, Nanotech's Vice President of Sales, commented further, "Over the last 6–months, we've been shipping the 250UPL MP to select market–leading companies around the world, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Simply stated, no other machine available today can achieve the surface finish and form accuracy demanded by the optical designs these companies are launching over the next 36 months." Gerhart continued, "We're excited to share the future of ultra–precision machining with all companies when we formally launch the 250UPL MP platform at Photonics West – January 25, 2022."
