Precitech At A Glance   RECENT NEWS

Precitech designs and manufactures ultra precision machining solutions for freeform diamond turning, milling, and grinding which are used to produce optical lenses, mold inserts, mirrors, and precision mechanical components. Our machines produce rotationally symmetric, asymmetric, freeform, and sculpted geometries with form tolerances in the sub-micron range and nanometer surface finishes.

The first annual North American DIFFSYS User’s Group Meeting
was held at the Best Western hotel in Keene, NH on 4 May, 2017. There was a very good turn out with representatives from BAE, Clear Align, General Dynamics, ISP Optics, Janos, Rochester Precision Optics, Syntec, and Wilcox Industries all participating. We were happy to also have Alan Edwards, the founder of DIFFSYS in attendance. The meeting was a chance for DIFFSYS users to share their experiences and collaborate with other expert users. If you are interested in attending future user group meetings please contact Kirk Rogers or Cathi Giard.

Precitech announces a
PEPS® II-VX retrofit on installed machines and as an option on all new machines.

Active on machine vibration isolation
and precision leveling system

PEPS® II-VX is a digital non-contacting, height control and active vibration cancellation system. A version ideally suited for ultra precision machining, was jointly developed by Precitech and the vibration experts at TMC. PEPS® II-VX works with the existing pneumatic vibration isolation system eliminating the mechanical height valve and height sensing linkage. The result is a first-of-its-kind active on-machine vibration isolation and precision leveling system. (Read More)
