PHANTOM LABS’ AUTO LENS TINTER
An upgraded version of the Model 85, the Model 95 was developed for both solid and gradient tinting with no lines. This automatic lens tinting machine is microcomputer controlled and features dual digital time displays that show the tinting cycle set time and remaining cycle time. A versatile arm rotates 360˚ and can accommodate up to four pairs of lenses at a time. The Model 95 also features continuous agitation of the dye solution and comes with one lens holder (Model V1-RS) and a UL-listed power adapter.

TWO NEW GENERATORS FROM SATISLOH
Introduced at SLUGFest in November, two generators from Satisloh can easily be upgraded to meet lab needs. VFT-orbit 2E provides generating capability for all lenses, including free-form, and features VFT fast tool technology that generates up to 70 ready-to-polish lenses per hour. Available as manual or automated, the VFT-orbit 2E also features auto calibration to save time and eliminate manual adjustments and a power-save for up to 20% energy savings, according to the company.
The VFT-macro-E entry-level generator for digital surfacing is designed for small labs with its small footprint and low weight. The VFT-macro-E also features auto calibration and energy-saving functionality with a throughput of up to 25 lenses per hour.

3D LENS VIEWER FROM OCUCO
Innovations Lab Management System and LabLink customers now have the ability to see thickness on all lens points — not just on edges — with Ocuco’s 3D Lens Viewer. ECPs can determine if an Rx is appropriate for a chosen frame without having to call the lab, but if a call is necessary, labs can easily obtain lens thickness information “in a matter of seconds,” according to the company.
