Optronics Horizon III Lens Edger
The Optronics Horizon III Lens Edger is a super fast and extremely accurate 3 axis patternless edger, which can edge polycarbonate quicker and cleaner than wet grind systems.
- 3D edging.
- Edges CR-39, polycarbonate and high index.
- Dry cut means no coolant required.
- Safety bevel feature.
- Polishing function.
- Ultra quiet brushless motor
The Horizon III is a high quality, high production steady performer.
Plastic debris is removed by a vacuum system, eliminating the need for coolants.
As factory equipped, the edger will cut bevel and rimless interchangeably. Optional cutters expand edge peripheries to a dozen finishes, including Grooving, Faceting, Shelving and Roll & Bevel.
Cuts all shapes, sizes and powers of CR-39, Polycarbonate and Hi-Index lenses without changing cutters. Carbide blades cut instead of grind, so there is no rounding of the bevel. Standard cycle time is less than one minute.
Variable Flow Control
Standard cycle time is less than one minute, with a 20 second finish-only cycle for touch-up. Even the largest Poly lenses can be edged in a single cycle with a slower flow control cycle.
Fully integrated circuitry eliminates micro-switch adjustment, ensuring high reliability.
Thousands of installations worldwide have proven the Horizon II to be a workhorse of the industry.
Two Bevel Placement System
Two fully-adjustable bevel guide systems are standard: A Teflon Guide Wheel which tracks the actual front curve of the lens or a Cam Tracking System which duplicates nominal base curves. Both systems provide for fully variable front-to-back placement on all periphery finishes. Each system features a cycle-pause feature which allows the operator to easily make bevel placement adjustment mid-cycle.
Pattern from a lens capability, a feature unique to dry edging, is standard.
DC brushless motor is ultra quiet and more durable than conventional router motors.
