The high-performance blocker, CCU Modulo, automatically joins semi-finished blanks and block pieces with highest precision. Parallel processing steps combined with the economical use of the blocking material brings your whole surfacing operation up to speed while significantly reducing costs.
We have designed this future-proof machine with your installed machine base in mind. Compatible with today’s blocking standards and consumables, the CCU Modulo is the perfect solution to take over all of your current blocking requirements with no need to redesign the subsequent surfacing steps.
As an integral part of the Modulo concept, the CCU Modulo perfectly fits into the Modulo Line as well as into any other industry-proven Rx and freeform process.
The computer controlled filling process of the CCU Modulo guarantees very economical blocking with minimized losses. A cartridge magazine enables uninterrupted processing for more than an hour. The cartridges are refilled outside of the machine resulting in no production downtime. The use of the reusable block pieces minimizes the consumption of blocking media significantly.
Highest precision, best surfacing results
The high-resolution optical lens recognition and alignment system guarantees a perfect position of the lens and the block piece. Unique CNC controlled prism and axis adjustment and the variable lens clamping position ensure perfectly blocked lenses no matter how complex the requirements. The result is high precision blocking and consistency over long periods of operation.
— Fully automated blocking
— Three blocking stations
— Parallel lens handling, blocking and loading processes
— Camera-based lens recognition and alignment
— Prismatic blocking
The Modulo advantage
The CCU modulo comes with an on-board global interface philosophy that allows for connection to the Modulo system. Once connected to the Modulo system, the machine works as an integral part of this one-of-akind system solution and is subject to the centralized monitoring Control Center. The lab manager is fully informed about the current status of the machine. Therefore critical situations and downtime can be avoided before they arise. Higher uptimes and increased yields are guaranteed.
