Manual and alloy-free lens surface blocker

ART, non-alloy lens blocking technology, employs reusable block-pieces. The connection between lens blank and block-piece for optical lenses is made by using UV-curable adhesive. Non-automated labs with low to mid volume production can best profit by the manual ophthalmic blocker’s benefits:

  • Basically, the ART-Blocker-M is easy to operate and to maintain.
  • Moreover, a scanner interface saves time by entering job data automatically
  • Besides, the work sequence, displayed on the screen, reduces operator errors 
  • In addition, prism rings help to avoid application errors by setting the lens directly in the right position. 
  • Finally, a screen message alerts the operator when the process is complete. This also helps to avoid operator errors and lens breakage.
