|OCUCO RELEASES NEW INNOVATIONS FEATURES
The latest version of the Innovations Ultimate Lab System (ULS) from Ocuco includes many enhancements and new features including: Job Staging, a multi-function order management module that allows batching to user definable container types. For example, bins, baskets and boxes can be linked to stations such as shipping, coating or waiting components. A 3D Lens Viewer is now fully integrated and can display a 360Â° rotatable image of the edged lenses along with thickness calculations around the circumference. Migration from Visual Lab Pro is now easier with data import routines and a redesigned data entry screen.
A “mass farm out” feature has been added to allow for outsourcing in cases where production issues require a temporary overflow solution. An enhanced conveyor interface now includes material handling decision points that can route individual jobs to specific machines.
A number of new routines are available, including the ability to export to QuickBooks and MS Dynamics AX financials and to import Delta PMS and Omics and Optifacts LMS files. Integration with external systems has been simplified with the introduction of a number of new web services. Remote job checking can now display tracking numbers and links to the URL of the shipping agent. For more information, contact Ocuco at 800.708.1610, Sales@Ocuco.com or Ocuco.US.
|DYNAMIC LABS INTRODUCES PRO EDGE 3
Different in color and material, Pro Edge 3 finish blocking pads from Dynamic Labs, Inc. significantly reduces twisting in high-torque edging situations. The green foam substrate unique to Dynamic Labs has just enough give to eliminate concerns of lens slippage, according to the company, which determined that during testing Pro Edge 3 excelled on high plus, high minus and often difficult bifocal lenses. The company also reports that premium coatings are not a problem as the pads work well on all coated and uncoated lenses yet easily and cleanly de-block. “High volume labs and single-doctor practices will both enjoy the benefits from this blocking pad,” said Joe Alber, director of sales and product development. “For years we have all seen amazing advances in lens technology; Pro Edge 3 is an advance in blocking pad technology.” For more information, contact Dynamic Labs, Inc. at 888.339.6264 or Info@DynamicLabs.net.
|OPTISOURCE CAD-CON 1000
Treat 5 gallons of alloy reclaim tank wastewater by adding 1 cup of Cad-Con 1000, which acts like a magnet to attract and chemically bind with dissolved particulate cadmium and lead. Once metals are bound, they are unable to become soluble again, remaining trapped in the sediment in a chemically stable state that leaves water clear and free of cadmium and lead. Cad-Con 1000 can also be used to treat other alloy-contaminated wastes such as block washer waters, swarf sludge, coolant, polishes and emery.
