CudoForm develops novel products that improve performance in customer products and that benefit industry and society. CudoForm has extensive experience in product modeling, analysis, and optimization methods for opto-mechanical designs and precision engineered components.
CudoForm designs novel stamping processes, guided by precision engineering principles, that achieve unprecedented accuracy and optical quality. Although the processes remain proprietary, the processes can benefit your products by the precision and accuracy of our stamped components.
CudoForm assures quality in tooling, stamped components, and optical assemblies using world-class equipment and expertise in dimensional and surface metrology. This capability is used to confirm the quality of tooling prior to production and to confirm the quality of stamped components in production.
Materials and Surfaces
CudoForm uses material testing, metallography, and tribology to understand the properties of workpiece materials, tooling, and their interaction at surfaces. This is essential data for designing and optimizing stamping processes.
CudoForm manufactures world-leading hard tools for stamping processes. The dimensional tolerances routinely exceed 500 nm, and the surface finishes can be better than 5 nm Ra. These stringent tolerances are necessary for optical applications.
Validation and Verification
CudoForm conducts dimensional metrology, opto-mechanical tests, and reliability tests to validate product specifications and to verify product performance. Our environmental test chambers are available for product testing.
CudoForm uses data analytics derived from big-data and real-time streaming architectures to monitor stamping processes in-situ and detect deviations from standard process conditions. These have been tested and demonstrated in real-time progressive stamping applications and are available for high-volume applications.
