Fabricating Custom Glass and Quartz Parts
When your manufacturing or assembly process calls for precision glass and precision quartz part grinding and drilling, polishing, edging, CNC machining, milling, beveling, cutting, sawing, bending, coating, etching, laminating, S & S Optical can do it. We specialize in building prototypes for clients that need help in product development. We can customize a part for production. And we have the capacity for higher volume production runs of the final glass or quartz part.
Reconditioning Glass and Quartz Parts
S & S Optical reconditions damaged glass and quartz parts that have become scratched, pitted, dulled, or clouded by use and wear to meet original specifications and tolerances. We look for surface defects less than 1/1000th of an inch. The quality level of the glass and quartz surfaces after our reconditioning is often better than the original glass and quartz material.
