Ultra Optics’ NEW 44R is the first of its kind, fully automated backside coating machine. This conveyor fed, robotically loaded machine, coupled with our revolutionary new Ultra Care Program (UCP), bring ophthalmic labs cost savings and improved yields which have not previously been possible.  

Key Features and Benefits

Conveyor fed and robotic lens handling

Incoming work is fed directly from the conveyor after the polisher.  The robotic arm picks the lenses from the tray and places it into the processing portion of the machine.  This automated system minimizes handling errors as it is repetitive, predictable and has been programmed to adapt to virtually all lens thicknesses.

Integrates with lab management system (LMS)

Advanced PLC controls scan the bar code on the work ticket to confirm if the job is to be coated or passed through.  Additionally, codes in the LMS can be set to have the 44R simply wash the lenses without coating them.  The large color touch-screen makes it very simple to monitor all states of operation.

On the block processing

The lenses are processed while still on the surfacing block.  This provides many advantages such as front side protection and the elimination of high-index lens warpage.

Separated wash and dry modules

Separating the heated wash and dry modules allows for a more thorough wash and decreases breakage.  A longer drying cycle also improves the long-term stability of the coating in the reservoir.
