Crystran has added two new clean rooms to the facility. One is set up for Double-Sided polishing and the other for inspection.
Double-Sided Polishing Clean Room
Polishing Shop Supervisor
Len has almsot 40 years experience polishing optics in glass and most of the IR and UV materials available. He specialises in producing very parallel optics on our Somos double-sided polishing machines.
The clean room environment has improved the finish of many of the optical windows Crystran produces by removing potential sources of dust and contamination that could damage the delicate window surface during the polishing process.
Inspection Clean Room
Ashleigh has worked at Crystran in the Inspection Department since 2007. He is currently working towards his CQI certificate in Quality and is qualified as a BSI Internal Auditor for the Quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
Depending on the specification some optics may need to be tested and packaged in a dust free clean room environment, so this facility was created in addition to the main inspection department.
