SHAMIR AUTOGRAPH INTELLIGENCE LENSES
Available through selected partner labs Oct. 1, Autograph Intelligence lenses were designed utilizing Artificial Intelligence and Big Data that revealed a link between patients’ visual needs and their “Visual Age.” Autograph Intelligence lenses provide the optical solution for patients at every Visual Age without the need for questionnaires, and lenses incorporate three technologies: Eye-Point Technology AI, which uses Head Eye Integrative Movement software to see exactly where a wearer looks; Continuous Design Technology, which integrates patients’ habits and visual needs so wearers can move from one add to the next without adaptation concerns; and Visual AI Engine, which applies elements of AI to mimic human intelligence. Lenses are available in both fixed and variable designs, including 11mm, 13mm, 15mm and 18mm fitting heights in the full range of materials offered by Shamir.

OTB 80 CNC-A4 BLOCKER FROM OPTOTECH
With independent linear handling and four blocking stations, this alloy blocker from OptoTech is able to block up to 240 lenses per hour. The OTB 80 CNC-A4 blocker incorporates Multi Job Tray Access Handling and Machine Split Technology, in which a moveable conveyor “opens” the machine for easy access for maintenance. OptoTech’s Pulse Filling Technology optimizes blocking with minimal loss of alloy. A stacker for blocking pieces is integrated into the blocker (also compatible with non-OptoTech blockers) and has the capacity of 340 blocking pieces (300 in the stacker; 40 on the transport belt). Blocking rings and alloy can easily be refilled during operation for uninterrupted blocking. For more information, contact OptoTech at 877.412.8350 or OptoTech.de.
SCHNEIDER DEBUTS TWO MACHINES AT VEW
The Modulo Center 80 is an all-in-one surfacing center that offers milling, lathe turning, polishing and laser marking, making a full production line in one machine. The ability to run all processes simultaneously (even lathe turning and milling) and processes up to 80 lenses per hour results in substantial time savings.
The HSE Modulo QS edger contains four processing stations; two rough cut and two finishing stations, to process four lenses at the same time. Two lens-measuring units provide fully automated quality control based on the full lens map. For more information, contact Schneider Optical Machines, Inc. at 972.247.4000 or Schneider-om.com.
