Nanoform® 700 ultra Multi-Axis Machining System

Nanoform® 700 ultra
Multi-Axis Ultra Precision Machining System

If you need the flexibility of a large frame lathe and the quality of a small frame lathe, the Nanoform® 700 ultra is precisely the machine you need. 

The Nanoform® 700 ultra has a industry leading surface finish spec of 1 nm Ra. Its unique 700 mm swing and optional 170 kg load capacity make it the largest ultra precision machining system able to achieve that level of performance. 

The Nanoform® 700 ultra is designed for the production of optical lenses, optical mold inserts, mirrors & mechanical components. The machine can be configured from 2 to 4-axes to produce spherical, aspheric and freeform surfaces. 

Since 1962, Precitech has delivered complete ultra precision solutions and maintains an installed base of over 1,500 systems worldwide. We continue to define the state-of-the-art, enhancing accuracy, productivity, and ease of use.
