Electro Optic Systems (EOS), an Australian defense and space company, needed a precision aluminum coating for a very large optical component on one of their telescopes. EOS was significantly behind schedule and other optical coating companies were asking for a 6 month lead time.
EMF was awarded the project based on its precision aluminum coating capabilities and the ability to turn things around quickly. Because EOS was considerably behind schedule, the team at EMF was under tremendous pressure to make sure that the work was done quickly and smoothly.
Leveraging its deep expertise in highly-specialized optical coatings and highly-skilled, highly-knowledgeable coatings experts, EMF was able to coat the telescope mirror in 4 days. EMF’s quick turnaround time was light years ahead of the competition and it delivered the finished product on time and under budget.
