Introducing the HSE modulo
The first high speed double spindle edger for fully independent edging of the left and the right lens – on-the-block or blockless. The two separate multi-axis systems enable truly independent simultaneous processing of the lenses – no matter how diverse the job requirements.
The edger’s high rigidity and precise tool clamping allow for highest rpm processes. Working with exceptional speed, HSE Modulo sets new standards in performance and throughput.
The intuitive and easy to use shape editor opens up a broad range of finishing options to process even the latest complex styles, specialties included. The result: virtually unrestricted lens finishing. And with the SCHNEIDER blockless edging option costs can be reduced significantly.
Highest speed for massive throughput
The HSE Modulo fulfills all the criteria for accurate high-speed edging: Built on an extra solid machine base the double spindle edger features the high rigidity to produce the smoothest surfaces. Perfectly centered tool holders guarantee more balance and accuracy during edging. Together these features form the ideal conditions for very precise edging even with highest rpm processes, making HSE Modulo a real speedster. Extremely efficient, the edger processes two lenses simultaneously and incorporates time saving parallel handling processes. While the fast handling system unloads the finished job, the next job is transferred to the working chamber, minimizing non-productive time. The result: a new standard in throughput.
Fashion’s best friend
The HSE Modulo is prepared to keep up with the constantly changing requirements of fashion – today and tomorrow. The advanced Shape Editor offers simple programming of virtually any shape in fashion, even the most complex. The elaborate software performs all optimizations fully automated to grant the best results without specific operator expertise. The HSE Modulo is designed to work with existing tracers on the market linked via the VCA/OMA protocol.
SCHNEIDER blockless option
The HSE Modulo is able to work with blocked lenses or it can be fitted with the SCHNEIDER blockless option. The fast non-tactile measurement technology determines the right lens position based on measurements or marks and printings. Working blockless, the HSE Modulo reduces costs and eliminates handling errors. No need for time consuming manual blocking. No costs for consumables
Integrated quality control
Optionally, HSE Modulo comes with an integrated optical measurement unit – LMU. For the first time ever, quality can be measured based on the full lens map inside an edger. The result is a fully automated quality control before further manufacturing steps occur. Mismatch is avoided, labor is reduced, and process efficiency gains are unmatched
The Modulo advantage
The HSE 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-a-kind 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.
