How to profit in automated lens surfacing

VFT-orbit-2 covers all production processes: lens milling, turning, cribbing and engraving. The standard VFT-orbit-2 configuration comes with automation. It is Satisloh's only free form digital lens generator where automation is included by default.

  • An ultra-fast ophthalmic milling spindle ensures average generating times of between 8-10 seconds per lens
  • Satisloh’s proprietary milling tool interface with a 14-tooth cutter enables 35,000 RPM. It is the fastest tool in the industry.
  • Satisloh's VFT fast tool and “voice-coil” technology ensure ultimate surface accuracy, smoothness and short “cut-to-polish” processes
  • VFT-orbit-2 features Integrated Topography Measurement (ITM) for validating the lens after surfacing
  • Auto-calibration eliminates manual adjustments and saves time

Options for even better performance & customized requirements

  • A second fast tool enables the use of different turning tips for diverse materials.
  • Through Tool Cooling, a patented Satisloh technology, provides highest surface accuracy and extended tool life
  • Mechanical engraving
  • Intelligent bypass loader upgrade
