Fully Automatic: Nidek’s SX series of patternless edgers provides automatic SFB and grooving, with a new multidisk arm that grooves and SFB in one operation. The optimal chamfering amount can be set by selection of chamfering parameters. Grooving is achieved automatically with pin-point accuracy.
Mirror Polish: LE-9000’s “Mirror Polishing” produces mirror-like lenses.
Accuracy: Rimless and half rim lenses can be polished extremely precisely with
no additional buffing time required. The LE-9000SX PLB
provides easy and accurate bevel mirror polishing.
High Quality: The newly developed 3D tracing & lens measurement feature provides
accurate frame and lens measurements, ultimately offering a
perfect finish. Thirty-two thousands data points per processing round
ensures a precise fit.
Frame Memory: One hundred framed shapes can be stored in memory, and with the
optional bar-code reader, up to 500 shapes can be stored. This
improves efficiency, saves time and storage space.
Flexible & Versatile: The LE-9000SX can process any type of lens materials including glass, plastic, polycarbonate, acrylic, and high index plastic lenses in order to meet your customers needs.
About the ICE-9000 Intelligent Blocker
The ICE-9000 is a revolutionary blocker and tracer combination that reads single vision and bifocal lenses, as well as printed and pre-identified laser marks on progressive lenses, increasing workflow and saving time. Compared to conventional blocking which requires operator involvement, the ICE-9000 blocking arm moves in both the X and Y direction automatically. The block-head also rotates (theta rotation) for blocking lenses on 180 degrees axis. The system’s exceptionally accurate tracer digitizes an unprecedented 32,000 points of reference per eye.
Featuring an integrated ALM (Auto Lens Meter), the ICE-9000 enables lens blocking without having to mark and center lenses, simplifying the process and increasing accuracy. Therefore, the operator need only insert the lens and the ICE-9000 takes over, automatically blocking any lens with great precision. The high-resolution, color display touch screen can be used to enter job codes easily, reducing human error and resulting in precise blocking.
The ICE-9000 is a highly intuitive instrument which auto-aligns bifocals and progressives. In addition to being VCA compliant, the ICE-9000 can interface with other software and all edger’s seamlessly. This is an exciting product, offering eyewear professionals the best in tracing and blocking equipment. The ergonomic, compact size is the perfect complement to the LE-9000EX Express Edger, meeting the limited space needs of many labs.
