During World War II, William Vogelin was approached by a large local business that was having an issue cutting out photo emulsions (photos on glass). Whereas nobody was able to cut the plate that these photos were created on, he was able to find a way. His innovation used water as a coolant to cut the plates, and this meant the photos were never stained.
A Growing Company
Since that time Vogelin's company has become an established manufacturer of precision optics and optical materials. The company also began providing polishing and machining services to cutting-edge companies that save lives and explore outer space.
