SOMOS offers specific and ‘Tailor-made’ equipment for each type of problem.

From standard basic elements, SOMOS develops – for each dimension of parts to be treated – 4 series of machines able to satisfy the most diverse surfacing needs (single and/or double face): the most economical equipment ( Cost/performance) to the most powerful machine (“Fine Grinding”), passing through systems intended for specific treatments or mass production under extreme conditions.

This great diversity of machines offered by SOMOS is made possible by the constitution of a set of modules, assembled according to specific needs.

The modules have been gradually and continuously developed using high-performance 3D CAD tools.

Thus, each customer, according to his problem (Dimension, geometry, materials, tolerances, quantities, budgets, etc.) benefits from a wide choice of equipment and processes adapted both technologically and economically.

Double Sides Machine

Double Sides Machine “TPM 630A”

Unrivaled since conception, the “Double face” machine has revolutionized the polishing industry by allowing optimal and reliable treatment of parts requiring very tight thickness tolerances, as well as demanding criteria of flatness and parallelism.

Single-sided machines are widely used in all traditional optical component lapping and polishing operations.

The “Single flat face” equipment (for flat surfaces and large curvatures) and “Single spherical face” (for convex or concave shapes) allow high quality surfacing whatever the geometry of the parts.

Production Line

All production machines benefit from the latest technologies in terms of numerical control and cycle management.

Several types of machines can be integrated into the same process, in order to cover the treatment.

Complete production lines thus allow all operations to be carried out in a fully automated manner.
