OPHTHALMIC LENSES


Bevel and curves generated on ophthalmic lenses

OPHTHALMIC LENSES


GENERATORS

Metallic, electrolytic or vacuum welding crowns to make curves on lenses like mineral lenses, CR39, polycarbonates, Trivex or any type of organic lens.

PDC synthetic diamond routers are also used for automatic machines that only work with organic lenses. These drill bits can be sharpened.

The final step is to use natural diamond milling tools for a superficial finish on the lens. These are made with a different radius and angles, mainly for free-form programs.

PELLETS & PADS

Diamond pellets with a metal or resin bond made of different dimensions or grain size are used to finish the lenses, in between the rough grinding and the cerium oxide polishing processes.

In many processes, the pellets are replaced by flexible metallic bond pads, which are very versatile.

BEVELERS/EDGERS

We equip any beveling machine on the market. We offer kits with roughing, finishing and polishing wheels for ophthalmic lenses. They are very precise and durable tools, which allow you to work with any kind of lens, mineral or organic, from the classic CR39 to Trivex or polycarbonate materials. Edging wheels are also used for a perfect beveling finish of the lens.

In some manual machines peripheral or frontal wheels are used.

GROOVING DISCS

These are cutting discs that allow you to make grooves on the edge of the lens in order to insert nylon or steel thread. The thickness varies from 0.5 mm to 1.2 mm.

Discs can be made of metallic or electrolytic bond and are used for both mineral and organic lenses.
