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 offers precision 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

                                    PRECISION BEVELING

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.

PRISM GRINDING

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.
