OptiCentric® & LensAlign - Doubles the Efficiency of Your Alignment Process

OptiCentric® with LensAlign 2D Standard for lens alignment and cementing
OptiCentric® with LensAlign 2D Standard for lens alignment and cementing

With its LensAlign modules for OptiCentric® TRIOPTICS has developed a production device for the lens alignment and cementing process that more than doubles the throughput of the lens alignment process while increasing the accuracy of the lens alignment.

 

 

Depending on the configuration the system can be used for:

  • Alignment of a lens to another lens
  • Alignment of a lens to an arbor

LensAlign for OptiCentric® is a perfect supplement for optical edging machines. As a preliminary step of the edging process, the LensAlign modules align and cement lenses. If the lenses are aligned and cemented to each other the lenses are fixed with the bell clamping method in the edging machine. If the lenses are cemented on an arbor, the arbor is fixed in the edging machine and the edge of the lenses is machined.

Key Features

  • Aligning accuracy with the software OptiCentric 9 and the Align Module better than 2 µm
  • Very short cycle, 10 s with MultiCentric® measurement head
  • Automated alignment of the centers of curvature of the top lens surface to a customer-specific axis with SmartAlign Technology
  • Alignment to the optical axis of the lower lens or to the axis of an arbor
  • Automated process: measurement, alignment and UV curing completely software controlled
  • Adapted to the production processes of lens manufacturers
  • Short set up time for other lens geometries
  • Based on well-established OptiCentric® measurement systems
  • High-precision measurement of centration error in reflection mode (< 0.1 µm accuracy)
