Fast Tool Servos Applications

Our FTS machines​ are compact and can be fitted to any lathe, including ultra-precision diamond turning machines to form a supplementary fast 'Z' axis. Kinetic Ceramics’ Fast Tool Servos are currently operating worldwide to support the manufacturing of:

Pistons
  • Coupled with a single-point diamond lathe, Kinetic Ceramics’ FTS machines allow manufacturers to rapidly produce ultra-high precision asymmetric products.

  • Our High-Travel FTS machines are ideal for use in the turning and profiling of automotive pistons.

Contact lenses
  • Our fast tool servos are used to create drum molds that are integral to the production of contact lenses, as well as providing polishing and surface finishing.

Optical films
  • High speeds and precise control allow customers to rapidly create a wide variety of patterns and micro-lenses for use in numerous applications requiring optical quality performance.

  • Our FTS are ideal for the manufacturing of embossing for display and safety films (brightness enhancement and controlled reflectivity) and screens.

Powered by our proprietary Piezomotor®, our extremely reliable High-Travel FTS and Ultra-FTS are revolutionizing the manufacturing world by allowing companies to precisely machine micro features at speeds over 20,000 times a second on a wide range of materials, including brass, copper, nickel, aluminum and plastics.

Our Fast Tool Servos provide high-precision feedback and response rates and are some of the world's fastest ultra-precision machine tools available on the market.
