What is Single Point Diamond Turning?

Single point diamond turning (SPDT) is a CNC truning process that use a highly precised single-point diamond cutting tool to remove material from a rotating workpiece,  resulting in ultra-precision surfaces and geometries. it can be used for creating optic components from prototypes to productions. 

Advantages of Diamond Turning

1

High Precision

Diamond turning can make parts with very high precision, Surface roughness can reach 4 nm RMS.

2

Material Versatility

Diamond turning is compatible with a wide range of materials including metals, plastics, and ceramics.

3

Cost-Effective

Diamond turning optic parts can lead to cost savings without tooling needs when prototyping in small batches.

4

Efficiency and Speed

Diamond turning can make the optic components in weeks to save the time make the tooling. 

Applications of Diamond Turning

Single point diamond turning (SPDT) is ideal for making optic components used in various industries, including aerospace, defense, telecommunications, and medical devices.

  1. microscopes, endoscopes, cameras, and telescopes in imaging systems.
  2. fiber-optic networks in telecommunications systems.
  3. Micro-optics components in sensors

Packaging & Shipping

Pack your products with a robust packing Standard and ship to you by international express.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

There are several types of diamond turning include Normal turning, off-axis turning, fly-cutting, and free form machining.

Diamond turning can achive  small tolerance range from 1nm to 10nm. 

we could make a optic ptototype in less than 2 weeks which depends on the complexity of products.

The cost of a diamond turned optic prototype cost range from $1000 to $5000, depends on the size and geometry of the part. Depending on the project’s specifications, diamond turning can be a cost-effective and affordable option over other optical manufacturing methods which need expensive tooling. 

Both plastics and metals can be used for diamond turning as below: 

Metals: copper, aluminum, nickel, and brass

plastics: Acrylic(PMMA)

Infrared materials: germanium, silicon, chalcogenide glass.
