Following the research and development stage, each innovation also needs to be manufactured. And here at ZEISS we do most of that in house – this is how we are able to set the standards in terms of quality, delivery dates, and, last but not least, working conditions ourselves. In this Virtual Open House, we will introduce the individual production areas of Carl Zeiss Jena GmbH: for example Mechanics, Optics, and Assembly. Using concrete examples, the work steps from the first idea to the drawings up to the finished parts become visible – and what role you can play in this.
This refers to the production of mechanical components for different ZEISS devices. As manufacturing technologies, we mainly use classic machining processes such as turning, milling, and grinding.
The high-quality optical ZEISS products require the highest precision in processing. This includes, for example, the ultra-precision finishing of flat and round optics, the bonding of various optics components, and the manual and machine polishing of optics.
This is where the precursors from Mechanics and Optics come together. Lenses, frames, objective lenses, or entire assemblies are assembled and adjusted in this area.
