IDT have developed a sagittal crystal bender based on a design from the Swiss-

The highly repeatable design is based upon a very stable 4 bar bender. The crystal is bent by driving the tungsten bending rods about the support rods. The mount is wire EDM machined for the highest possible tolerances and alignment.
The crystal features a central multi-
