son-x is a leading edge technology and component supplier in the field of ultra precision machining. The technology developed and commercialized by son-x enables direct machining of steel with single crystal diamond tools. A consistent surface quality of Ra=3nm and a form accuracy of 150 nm can be achieved.
- Ultrasonic Tooling Systems for diamond machining of steel
- Contract based manufacturing service
Main applications are optical mould inserts for injection moulding of Automotive LED head lights, LED illumination optics, Camera lenses, Sensor lenses
Benefits of the technology: Direct diamond machining of steel; No nickel plating; Faster manufacturing, Less costs
Benefits of the Mould Inserts: Monolithic stainless steel inserts (no coating); Longer insert life; Faster manufacturing; Scratch resistant inserts; Quick repairing
On the Photonics West the second generation equipment “UTS2” with a unique frequency of 100 kHz is presented. Several mould insert examples are displayed.
son-x has two business fields:
- son-x systems - offers ultrasonic tooling systems for direct diamond machining of steel. Our new product generation, the “UTS2”, will be displayed at the Photonics West. The UTS2 works with a unique vibration frequency of 100 kHz. It allows direct cutting of stainless steel with single crystal diamond tools to a highest quality level (Ra~3nm, PV<150nm).
- son-x precision - offers ultra precision manufacturing service. With our long term experience in ultra precision technology and our sophisticated equipment we offer contract based manufacturing of optical components.
Our main applications are steel mould inserts for injection moulding of optics for automotive lighting, LED illumination, imaging/camera lenses, connectors, sensors, etc.
Ultrasonic Tooling System UTS2
The new 100-kHz Ultrasonic Tooling System UTS2 developed by the company son-x GmbH enables direct ultra-precision machining of stainless steel without geometric constraints and with maximum efficiency. This innovative process allows direct machining of steel-, titanium-, nickel-alloys and some glass types in highest quality (Ra<3nm, PV<150nm). The typical application is mould insert manufacturing for plastic and glass optics replication.
