KUALA LUMPUR: Moore Nanotechnology Systems (Nanotech) and DKSH have made grand opening of their Ultra-Precision Machining demo, training and applications centre in the Minhang District of Shanghai, China.

According to a statement, the 350 sq metre-facility will allow Nanotech customers access to both classroom and hand-on demonstration of their model 250UPL(V2) compact diamond turning lathe.

It is used for the production of spherical and aspherical optical lenses, mould pins, mirrors, freeform optics and other ultra-precise mechanical components.

In addition to single point diamond turning, the centre will also offer access to associated metrology equipment, Applications Engineering and NanoCAM®4 software-support through the form of training, conferences and 1:1 meetings.

Nanotech president and chief executive officer, Mark Boomgarden said: “Having this world-class applications and training expertise closer to our Asian customer’s design and production facilities will allow us to better demonstrate our market-leading equipment and NanoCAM4 software real-time.”

Meanwhile, according to DKSH Technology Systems China managing director Oliver Hammel, DKSH will now be able to provide best-in-class solution-engineering services, along with diamond-turning test cuts, on-site in China.

Nanotech is a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of state-of-the-art ultra-precision machine tools and associated processes for the production of advanced optical components in consumer electronics, defence, aerospace, lighting, medical and automotive sectors.  – Bernama
