The Magnetic Flip Fixture can automatically
flip lenses inside a vacuum coating machine without having to break
vacuum when changing sides. The magnetic coupling has decisive
advantages compared to mechanical turning devices.
Finite element simulation is used to calculate the magnetic field and
fit it to the layout of a coating machine. Thereby, the Magnetic Flip
Fixture can be adapted to various types of coating machines.
