asphericon is one of the leading manufacturers of aspherical components using CNC-technology. Established 2001 in Jena, Germany, asphericon has become an independent and acknowledged specialist for aspheres, freeforms, reflectors, cylinders and axicons. More than 250 customers worldwide benefit from asphericon broad know-how.
The basis of our production process is a technology developed by asphericon implementing CNC grinding and polishing machinery, which has the ability to simulate polishing operations. For the first time, asphericon is able to produce large quantities with medium precision levels and smaller quantities with high precision levels.
With a completely networked manufacturing process all parameters and actual values are saved in a digital quality document. The asphericon technology enables us to make high level aspheres for application into high standard optical devices as well as high quantity production for mass market.
State-of-the-art CNC equipment enables us to produce different convex and concave surface forms. For instance, our aspheres can be aspherical on both sides with different points of inflection. asphericon produces diameters from 2,0 up to 200mm with a roughness as low as 1 nm Rq.
