MultiCentric® Cementing Workstation - Multiplies the Efficiency of the Lens Alignment and Cementing Processes

MultiCentric® Cementing Station aligning a pair of lenses

With the new MultiCentric® Cementing Workstation lens pairs are quickly and accurately aligned and cemented. The cementing station is a further development of the well-established OptiCentric® Systems.

Compared to the conventional cementing methods, the MultiCentric® Cementing Workstation reduces the cycle time significantly to less than 10s. This significant improvement is achieved thanks to the innovative measurement head. With the short cycle time the MultiCentric® Cementing Workstation paves the way to a significant increase in efficiency in the automated highprecision alignment and cementing process.

Key Features

  • Short cycle time of less than 10 seconds* for the active alignment of doublets
