High-output finishing workshops and labs – from specialist glazers, independent finishing labs, hubs serving retail chains to multi-store optician workshops – represent a growing part of services in the vision care industry. Taking into account their needs for accurate and reliable finishing for high daily volumes of lenses, Essilor Instruments developed its Pro-E 600 edger – a compact solution that’s easy to fit into any workshop configuration. Integrating new and faster processes in all cycles as well as a number of other innovations, it aims to boost productivity while ensuring precision rendering for even the most complex lens shapes and finishes. Explore its features in our video.
Innovation at Essilor is highly customer-oriented. Instruments R&D teams developed and tested the new machine in the field with prescription labs for 18 months prior to launch, to check its performance in live operating conditions and demonstrate its new levels of productivity, accuracy and reliability.
The Pro-E 600 is the second edging solution launched by Essilor Instruments over the past 12 months. Delta2, an entry-level all-in-one solution for tracing, centering and edging has generated significant sales across 40 countries since its introduction in 2016. Industrial expertise and continual innovation has made Essilor Instruments a world leader in edging and finishing solutions; the division has gained five innovation awards at the Silmo world trade fair over the past 10 years.
Essilor’s Instruments division supports the different players in the optics and vision care industry. It designs, manufactures and distributes solutions and services for opticians, optometrists and ophthalmologists covering eye refraction, diagnosis and imagery in the medical practice through to measurement, edging and mounting tools and sales support in the optical retail store.
