•A second Haas VF-9 CNC machining center to ensure on-time delivery of large optical blanks
•A Haas VF-1 CNC machining center for faster delivery of smaller components
•Two Rogers & Clarke generators: a second G-300, and a G-150 for smaller lens blanks
•A Cooke generator capable of generating up to 24" diameters
•LOH Semi-automatic prism grinder with 4 grinding heads and up to 6" capacity

•Retrofitted equipment to do edge polishing--a Myford cylindrical grinder for rods, and a Fadal 4020 CNC mill for all shapes and configurations
•Sphere machine for grinding and polishing 2" to 8.5" diameter balls

Our Facilities New Stars
Last, but certainly no least, our expansion includes 3 Meyer Burger DS264/4 diamond wire saws. Wire saws are capable of cutting thin substrates efficiently, with very attractive pricing for all your volume needs.

Exciting Developments
AGI looks forward to continuing development. We have a small automatic prism grinder under development in-house, and we have teamed up with OptiPro, who is building and selling our AGI-designed chamfering machines.

More Used Equipment Available
AGI is always on the lookout for used equipment. We have acquired over 30 used machines to add to our used equipment inventory. We invite you to check out our list of available equipment, and contact us if you have anything for sale. Be sure to visit our website frequently, as we will continue to update the list.
