Optical quality surface finish on metal components is realized by turning and milling processes. Optical quality without polishing.
Whether in aeronautics or laser technology, for measurement instruments and in medical technology - metal optics are used wherever high performance, complex component shapes, low weight with high rigidity or simply the economic manufacturing method excludes the use of glass optics.
