FTS-1000

  Sterling Ultra Precision’s FTS-1000 is a fast tool servo attachment for our Optoform and Nanoform series ultra-precision lathes. The FTS-1000’s 200m/sec^2 peak acceleration enables production of high surface quality contact lens and intraocular lens toric designs at very high productivity rates. In addition to producing toric lens designs, the FTS-1000 is also ideal for manufacturing […]

Slow Tool Servo

Slow Tool Servo

Slow Tool Servos technology is an option which can be added to the Nanoform ultra-precision lathes for the production of freeform (3D) surface. STS differs from FTS (Fast Tool Servos) in that the machine moves the spindle axis in synchronization with spindle rotation at lower RPMs to produce non-rotationally symmetrical designs. So it performs as […]
