Sydor Optics has announced the completion of the first half of its USD 4 million acquisition in double-sided polishing and metrology equipment, with a second half of expansion to be completed within the next six months. Together with the flat glass optics manufacturer“s continuous investment in team development and process improvement, this acquisition will allow to continue its growth while handling its customer“s increasing volume and size demands. Sydor has acquired USD 2 million in new equipment to meet customer demand, including 11 PR Hoffman 5400 double-sided machines, two PR Hoffman 1500 double-sided machines, two Haas Mini Mills, a Tropel Flatmaster 200 interferometer and two Zygo interferometers. Although I think we“ve been lucky, we“d like to think it“s because we strive to be in step with our customers, said James Sydor, president. We tend to stick with our specialty of processing parallel optics using double-sided equipment because it yields exceptional parallelism and transmitted wavefronts. Sydor“s products are utilized in military products, including heads-up displays and laser protection filters, as well as in DNA sequencing and optics used in the film industry. With the PR Hoffman equipment, it can now double-side grind and polish optics up to 740 nm in diameter.
