MEI has updated its top of the range 4RacerTBA with new features. The new 4RacerTBA Swift has unparalleled automatic inspection abilities and fast self controlled edging process, with the smallest physical and environmental footprint of the market, according to the company. With its new control unit and lens loading program, the 4RacerTBA Swift improves the productivity of the 4RacerTBA, being able to edge up to 200 lenses/hour, processing 8 lenses at the same time “with extreme quality and precision” according to MEI. The machine performs quality inspection tasks, analyzing 100% of the production, to guarantee the MEI Total Quality Control. Before edging, the built-in inspection instruments (including a multipoint Shack-Hartmann focometer) assure the automatic precise measurement of all optical parameter. After edging, with the 4QC Inspection System, it is possible to verify lens power, centering, axis, size and circ., ensuring that every lens meets required specifications in terms of optical parameters and shaping processes. The new features of the 4RacerTBA Swift include the Glide Meter, a slipperiness measurement before edging to optimize speed and precision and Silver Polishing, a new polishing process that guarantees higher quality and brilliance. A new Temperature Stabilizer improves the performance of the machine even in adverse environmental conditions; the machine has new milling tools, with innovative materials and treatments to improve quality.
