Tyrolit diamond tools facilitate the entire process chain in the production of optical glasses. Organic or mineral glasses are produced in a casting or free-form process and then – using our grinding tools – sanded into the desired optical strength. After finishing, the glasses are polished and fitted into the desired frame using our precision tools.
