SPP modulo

Automated lens protection, intelligently combined

No bubbles, wrinkles,
or detaching – even with extreme lenses.

The fully automated spin protection system, SPP Modulo, optimally protects lenses during surfacing utilizing UV-curable liquid protection layers. Problems with wrinkles, bubbles or detaching, commonly known with current taping solutions, are a thing of the past. Ideal preconditions for autoblocking.

Spin-protection replaces tape

The UV-curable protection layer is evenly distributed across the lens optimally covering it while adhering tightly to it – even with extremely curved lenses or extreme flat top bifocals. Bubbles or wrinkles are prevented that often result in power or cosmetic defects.

One filling of the lacquer tank lasts all shift long and can be refilled quickly and easily, resulting in uninterrupted processing and minimum downtime. No hassles with tape replacement.

UV-cured thin film lacquer

The smart automation system handles eight lenses at a time, swiftly transferring them from station to station. While two lenses are covered with the thin film lacquer protection layer, another two are already being cured using UV light at the next station. At the same time, the next two lenses are loaded and another two are transferred back to the job tray.

Tape vs. spin protection

After processing, the protection layer can be removed easily with SCHNEIDER’s solutions for deblocking and tape-stripping.

Besides surfacing protection, this new spin protection technology can also be used for ideal protection of blanks and semi-finished goods at different stages such as storage or transportation.

The Modulo advantage

SPP Modulo comes with an on-board global interface philosophy that allows connection to the Modulo system.

Once connected to the Modulo system, the machine works as an integral part of this one-of-a-kind 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 assured.
