DIFFSYS® is a Windows® program for the generation of optical surfaces on precision CNC machines, particularily diamond-turning machines.

It was primarily developed for aspheres, diffractives, fresnels and hybrids, and has now expanded in various directions, to include 3D surfaces (non-circularily symmetric), special tool configurations, and also measurement corrections.

DIFFSYS outputs jobfiles in several ASCII formats, compatible with most  commercial machines. The strengths of DIFFSYS lie in its:

  • Ease of use & clear graphics
  • Ability to accept design data in many different formats
  • Comprehensive tool corrections, to ensure accurate machining
  • Excellent technical support

DIFFSYS was first released in 2000, and has become a market leader, with sales worldwide. It is recognized and recommended by the leading manufacturers of ultra-precision machines.
