Advantages of Optical Polishing

Optical Polishing
Optical polishing is a free abrasive process. An ultra fine abrasive compound in a slurry is applied to a polishing tool. The work part is placed on top of the polishing tool and moved to cause very fine, micro inch cutting at a highly controlled rate. To ensure the finest finishes possible, optical polishing is performed in a controlled environment. There is no stress introduced in this process. By comparison, diamond lapping would be considered a roughing operation to be performed before optical polishing.
