friction free and provide sub micrometre levels of position control.
Loxham Precision provides specialist ultra precision machining services.
These include diamond turning, large area diamond fly cutting and
micro-feature fabrication using electrochemical machining. Loxham’s
machining services can provide sub-micrometer size and form accuracy
together with nanometre (optical quality) levels of surface roughness.
Quality assurance is provided through high performance metrology
equipment including: Co-ordinate measuring machines (CMM), laser
interferometers, confocal contrast interferometers and capacitance non
contacting systems.

As part of our pedigree, Loxham Precision staff made more of the
mirrors of the NASA James Webb Space telescope than anyone else.
