Fully automated alloy-free lens blocking

ART, the non-alloy lens blocking technology, employs reusable block-pieces. The connection between lens blank and block-piece for optical lenses is made by UV-curable adhesive. The lens blocker itself features several benefits due to ART:

  • First of all, the ART-Blocker-A does not require any tape or any block rings.
  • Secondly, the automated lens blocker does not require any cooling time after blocking.
  • The availability of multiple block-pieces and diameters optimizes performance.
  • The lens blocking system does not need manual handling and front-side protection.
  • Lastly, the automated lens blocker includes imaging and probing. Front side probing enables re-calculation of back curve for most accurate optical power.
