  • Unique ability to produce toric edges, as well as lens geometries that include:
    • Spherical
    • Aspheric
    • Toric
    • Multi-focal
    • Other irregular cornea fits
  • Six tool positions for greater flexibility. Typically one position is reserved for the optical tool position sensor.
  • Three-Tool Fast Servo System
    • The unique ability to form complete edge radii of non-rotationally symmetric lens peripheries.
    • Complete edge forming on toric periphery lenses.
  • Easy access to serviceable parts by a pull-out drawer
  • Precise blocks are clamped pneumatically in the turning spindle to ensure optimum accuracy and reproducibility
  • Switchable air and spray-mist lubrication for optimizing lens surface finish
  • User friendly—all controls accessed from a high-quality color touch screen
  • Non-ferrous metal turning: brass, nickel plating, aluminum, copper
