Coburn Technologies, a provider of innovative, end-to-end customer solutions to the world’s ophthalmic lens processing industries, introduces a new version of the Duality lens processing platform – the Duality AR. “The Duality AR expands the family of Duality, introduced a year ago,” says Wayne Labrecque, Vice President Sales, Americas of Coburn Technologies. “The highly successful Duality performs de-taping and lens cleaning in one machine and has been well adopted by some of the world’s largest and best-known RX production facilities.”
The Duality AR machine is specifically designed to remove progressive ink marks and residue from uv cured surface blocking materials. “With the new version of Duality AR, we are expanding automation one step further in the lens production process. Duality AR, together with our Velocity automated coater, offers a complete automated solution for lens de-taping, cleaning and coating,” states Wayne Labrecque.
The new platform will be showcased at this year’s Vision Expo West in Las Vegas at booth LP6075.
