Precision Optics Manufacturing in California

Contour Metrological & Manufacturing (CMM) began manufacturing high-precision optics and precision components over 25 years ago. We specialize in producing difficult requirements in machined optics and unusual optical components that many of our competitors are not capable of producing. We push the limits of our state-of-the-art technology in order to solve our customers' product challenges. Total customer satisfaction of our products is our highest priority, and as a result, we are a global leader in diamond turned precision components for the production of advanced optics.

World Leader in Diamond Turned Optics

CMM is leader in diamond turning, as well as an innovator in computer modeling and proprietary computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) methods that solve production optics challenges. Mirrors, lenses, and precision components are made with proprietary programming and machining techniques. We utilize experience, talent, software, and the latest in 5-axis machining technology.

What We Make

Mirrors: A large part of our business is manufacturing mirrors for an array of typical applications. Capability can be scaled to make single unique mirrors for R&D applications or thousands of mirrors for production part runs.

Typical applications include:
  • R&D
  • Industrial Lasers
  • Medical Devices
  • Weapon Sights
  • Head Up Displays (HUD)
  • Communications
  • Security Systems
  • Wafer Fabrication
  • Space Exploration
  • Surveillance Devices

Lenses: Our specialty is plastic lenses, which we can make from molded blanks or raw stock for various industries. Primary materials used are acrylic (PMMA), polystyrene, and zeonex. Capacity ranges from R&D quantities to production runs shipped to customer demand.

Typical applications include:
  • R&D
  • Consumer Products
  • Medical Devices
  • Weapon Sights
  • Wearable Vision and Display Systems
  • Communications Equipment
  • Security Systems

Precision Components & Assemblies: Our full machine shop ensures unmatched precision in the manufacturing of complex contours and unusual shapes for both optical and traditional machining products. We have the capability of meeting sub-micron tolerances, which we verify with cutting edge inspection equipment. Our parts can be found in telescopes, test rigs, optical systems, and optical molds. CMM components enable you to scan the sky, communicate at the speed of light, or navigate with a Head Up Display (HUD) in your car.

Typical applications include:
  • Research and Development
  • Consumer Products
  • Space Exploration
  • Medical Devices
  • Molded Optics
  • Communications Connectors
  • Wearable Vision Systems

Optical Inspection Services: CMM is proud to provide world class inspection services that offers complete measurement and reporting services. Our services are often called upon as a third party verification service.

Typical applications include:
  • Dimensional layout service
  • First article inspections
  • Contour Analysis 2D & 3D
  • Surface Mapping and Reverse Engineering
  • Laser Interferometry
  • White Light Interferometry
  • Surface Finish Analysis
