Coburn Technologies is introducing a new product category to its surfacing line of products with an automatic lens deblocker, the Agility Autodeblocker.
Features: Developed for large labs seeking speed and efficiency, Agility is the fastest automated deblocking system on the market, capable of deblocking over 200 lenses per hour, according to Coburn Technologies. “The new Agility Autodeblocker completes our automated post-polishing product offering. When combined with our Duality De-Taper & Cleaner and our award-winning Velocity Lens Coater, our customers can fully automate the post-polishing process,” says Coburn Technologies president Alex Incera. “Lenses can be deblocked, de-taped, cleaned and coated in minutes without operator involvement.”
Agility is ideal for high volume labs that prefer a convenient automated solution. Both lenses are automatically removed from a job tray, placed onto the appropriate deblocking rings and then deblocked simultaneously using a mechanical action. Contrary to deblocking with powerful water jets that displace alloy, causes alloy waste and produce contaminated water waste, Agility separates the lens from the block without water in one clean, swift mechanical action.
“The name ‘Agility’ embodies our goals for the capabilities of the machine; rapidity, resilience and boldness,” Incera explains. The technology is also versatile in its ability to process a wide range of lens geometries and ring diameters. Agility is UL and CE certified.
