C.N.C. Lenticular Lathe for Front Surfaces
Computer numerical controlled lenticular lathe for
prescription or stock production of front surfaces
This machine is designed for both stock production (up to 2400
surfaces per operator per eight hour shift using five machines) and prescription
production (up to 870 surfaces per operator per eight hour shift using three
machines). High quality surface finish is produced on both single lenses and
stock production. Variable spindle speed and feed rates facilitate short cycle
times for increased production.
This semi automatic lathe has been specially designed to cut
convex bi curve spherical surfaces (front lenticular surfaces) in one cutting
sweep of a double topslide which must be set manually from computer derived
instructions. Immediately the lathe is set for each pair of curves, the cutting
cycle is automatically sequenced at the touch of a button. Suitable for hard,
soft and gas permeable materials.
