Ametek Precitech, in conjunction with Micro-LAM, Taylor Hobson and Zygo, is creating the Precision Advancement Centre of Excellence (PACE), which will open at Taylor Hobson’s headquarters in Leicester. In essence, the PACE facility is an applications centre for advanced diamond turning manufacturing and metrology. To help improve the facility’s capabilities, Ametek Precitech has supplied a four-axis Nanoform X configured with an Optimus laser-assisted machining system from Micro-LAM. This machine will improve the throughput and quality of diamond-turning processes for hard-to-machine materials.
