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.
