Gerber Coburn - SPX Plus Digital Lens Generating System - essentially a grinder, this machine uses a 9 flute, tungsten-carbide blade to cut the curve into the lens. Precise curvatures and thicknesses are achieved using this machine so we can deliver a consistent product to our customers.

Gerber Coburn - Acuity Digital Fining and Polishing System - these two machines finalize the curve after they receive the lens in rough cut form from the SPX Generator. Through a series of fining and polishing the curves become crisp and clear where they go to quality inspection and await the edging phase.

AIT - Maxima Digital Lens Edging System - this is the machine we use to form (or cut) the prescription lens blank into the shape of the frame. This is nearly the last stage in the process before we insert the lenses into the eyeglass frame.
