Automated deblocking of ART-blocked lenses
This fully automated deblocking system is the perfect addition to ART-Blocker-A, the key machine for alloy-free lens production.
It loads generated and polished lenses and returns deblocked lenses to the job tray. The deblocking system separates block-piece, adhesive, and lens by water jet and then dries both sides of the lens, making it inspection-ready. After separation, it sorts blocks by curvature and diameter, for efficient re-use.
The deblocked lenses are ready for all traditional hard- and AR-coating processes.
