-> Highly precise measurements on large or faraway objects
-> Geometric measurement of inaccessible surfaces
-> Geometric measurements in harsh environments

5micron GmbH's current portfolio is made up of two business segments: 1. Surface measurement technology 2. Special illumination systems. The business segment surface measurement technology is concerned primarily with development projects for the aviation industry which are based on optical methods. The methods are:

-> Deflectometry (geometric measurements of dimensions such as length, torsion, roughness etc.). Resolution: 50µm
-> Shadow method (defects inspection (OK / NOK decisions)). Resolution: 20µm
-> Sample projection (analysis of surface structure/topography) resolution: 5µm

In the business segment special illumination systems, the feasibility of data transmission via pulses of light was demonstrated as part of an internal project.

We Are dopa
dopa – for now 25 years we are your competent and internationally established partner for the development and production of diamond tools , the design of whole production processes and a specialized contract manufacturer for high end flat optics made out of different materials like optical glass, sapphire, ceramic, fused silica etc.
At this we have specialized us on the processing of optical glass, special ceramics and crystals. Our tools distinguish themselves by the fact that they produce also at high stock removal rates very fine, homogenous and scratch free surfaces, which have nearly no sub surface damage. This leads in the following manufacturing steps to a decrease of generally minimum 35 % of your polishing time. Furthermore it raises your products quality and stabilizes remarkably your processes. With their low wear our tools enable you moreover to produce very flat parts.
We own in our Berlin test laboratory most different grinding and polishing machines plus a wide range of measurement instruments. On those machines, that depict the state of the art technology in multiple industries, we run machining trials under real production conditions and optimize the tools and processes already here so far, that they can be implemented in our customer’s production as a complete system.
Improving existing technologies or visualizing whole technology changes as for example from lapping with loose abrasive to fine grinding or from polishing with diamond slurry to super fine grinding can be shown here while considering all economical and technological aspects. Using this our customers can cut down the long, hard and cost intensive implementation of new technologies at their end to a minimum or save it fully. Furthermore they are able to react much faster to changing market needs while not interrupting their running production. To push your borders we gladly assist you with our funded knowledge in choosing and making the right tools for your application.
We are developing efficiency. Please contact us!
