Meeting market requirements from fast coating solutions to premium processes.
The current ophthalmic market demands specific coating solutions to meet sustainability requirements. In this webinar, several solutions will be presented to tackle that demand in different ways: process, energy management and digital solutions.
Newly launched processes address sustainability in three different ways. Firstly, a very fast process allows for an unmatched batch time of less than 23 minutes in order to minimize the carbon footprint of each lens.
Secondly, a new benchmark for highly scratch resistant and durable coating solutions, allows for a longer lifetime of the eyeglasses. The end user can therefore keep his/her glasses for a longer period of time, hence saving energy by not having a new pair produced and avoiding unnecessary waste.
Finally, Umbra photochromic technology endows labs to convert almost any RX and stock lens to photochromic thus reducing the need of having a parallel stock of photochromic blanks.
Eco-mode functions on machines allow for a potential energy savings of up to 40%. Some machines can even benefit from an extra 25% energy saving using an intelligent control of the heater power, more energy efficient parts and effective insulations.
Digital solutions support sustainability. Using such services, customers can increase dynamically and instantly their yield, therefore minimizing wastes and energy consumption. A yield increase of 1% can help save several hundreds of kilos of plastic each year.
