Automatic 3D drilling
Various hole shapes such as slots, notches, counterbored holes, and jewel holes can be performed. A maintenance message notifies operator when drill bit needs replacing.
High base curve processing
NIDEK’s unique front and rear independent grinding function offers a high base curve bevel with flawless results. The position and height of the bevel can also be manually controlled.
Highly customizable, asymmetrical bevel permits lenses to be perfectly fitted into various eyewires. Mini beveling is also available with a single touch of the button.
Step beveling / partial step processing
With step beveling, Rx lenses can be easily inserted into sunglass frames, which are traditionally difficult to fit. The partial step processing grinds Rx lenses for specialty-type sport frames.
Maximum lens size: ø67 mm (type PLB-8S), ø72 mm (type PLB-2R8S)
Bespoke lens shapes can be designed creatively by utilizing the drill bit as a milling tool.
