extensive precision optics manufacturing capabilities
A LEADER IN PRECISION OPTICAL GLASS BLANK MANUFACTURING
Advanced Glass Industries is one of the world's largest suppliers of precision machined optical glass blanks, molded optical glass blanks and slumped optical glass blanks. We manufacture glass blanks in prototype to production quantities, from micro to macro scale, and can hold precision tolerances.
STATE OF THE ART OPTICAL GLASS BLANK MACHINING
AGI has a full range of glass
machining equipment. Our rough
diamond saws can cut optical materials
up to 40" x 40" x 70", and we can
CNC machine large glass pieces in our
2 Haas VF-9 mills with 80” x 40” x 25”
cavities. We can hold .0003” tolerances on
diameters as small as .015” on our centerless
grinders. And we can
waterjet cut any shape you can
imagine, now with 5-axis cutting capability.
PRECISION MOLDING OPTICAL GLASS BLANKS
Advanced Glass Industries is one
of a very small group of companies that
molded optical glass blanks. Molding
optical blanks is a craft, and we have over
100 years of combined experience and master
craftsmanship to offer you the finest molded
optical glass blanks.
OUR GLASS FABRICATION CAPABILITIES ARE ALWAYS EXPANDING
Technological advances are constantly changing the needs of markets we serve, and creating new applications and new markets for optical glass blanks. Advanced Glass Industries strives to be responsive to changing demands for precision glass blanks, and so we continually invest in optical manufacturing equipment and training to expand our capabilities.
developing precision glass fabrication techniques unique to advanced glass
In response to demand for consistent, precision beveling on high-volume orders, AGI developed and built a set of semi-automated bevelers. The machines can hold tolerances of ±0.005”, and one operator can run multiple machines enabling us to pass the savings on to you.
AGI is developing a flexible, semi-automated prism grinding machine. The new machine will generate precision ground prism blanks in up to a 3” X 3” format. This solution will be more cost effective that traditional prism grinding methods for both low and high volume orders.
