Precision Machining & CNC Machining of Glass

Valley Design is a custom fabricator of precision machined parts from Glass, Pyrex, Quartz, Fused Silica (SiO2), Sapphire (A Plane, C Plane, R Plane), 96% & 99.6% Alumina (Al203), Aluminum Nitride (AlN), Silicon Carbide (SiC), Boron Carbide, Steatite, Silicon, Zerodur, Macor, composites, and other ultra-hard materials. Valley also machines, laps, polishes and CNC machines a wide variety of metals including Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Titanium, Brass and Copper.

Glass Machining of Small Diameter Optical Windows

Valley Design provides precision glass machining and manufacturing of flat plano/plano optical and technical glass windows and discs as small as 1mm in diameter which can be thinned and polished to as thin as 1. These may be optically machined and polished to 10-15 microns thick with no edge drop off. Other geometries such as squares and rectangles with similar dimensions are also available. Valley provides CNC glass machining and glass machining services on all types of glass.

Precision Glass Machining of Optical Wafers, Substrates and Blanks

Small optical blanks from Filter Glass, Fused Silica, Zerodur, Pyrex and all other optical glasses are precision fabricated by 4 & 5 Axis CNC precision glass machining, diamond core drilling, ultrasonic drilling, impact grinding, diamond sawing, dicing, grinding, lapping and polishing. Silicon wafers with features may also be produced by silicon machining and polishing.

Machined Parts from Hard and Brittle Materials

Valley’s over 45 years of experience enables us to produce precision diamond machined parts by CNC machining, grinding, dicing, drilling, lapping, ultrasonic shaping, polishing and optical machining. Our expertise in hard and brittle materials is unique in the industry. Other hard materials processed include Silicon Carbide machining, and Sapphire machining.

These hard and brittle materials can be machined into small heat sinks, washers, precision shims and spacers, cubes, wafers, seals, diode mounts and other intricate shapes. Valley Design is your resource for all your CNC glass fabrication and hard material machining requirements.
