STANDARD FEATURES
The NEW Quick Release Clamp System
allows different size chucks to be easily
removed and installed in the edger. A
NEW Red Block is available for frame
sizes down to 18 mm.
KappaSPX edges all lens materials—glass, CR39®, hi-index, polycarbonate,
and Trivex® as well as edge polish bevels and flats with unmatched speed
and accuracy. And for those delicate jobs with performance coatings, KappaSPX
offers the exclusive EAS cycle—a special cycle for handling fragile or
anti-reflective coated lenses. The KappaSPX edger now includes a host of new
features including the Quick Release Clamp System for easy chuck removal,
the Red Block for frame sizes down to 18 mm, and software that enables
faster cycle times.
Placement can be automatic or the
operator can make custom modifications.
NEW Software enables faster cycle times,
movement of axes, and mapping cycles,
improving throughput by as much as 40%.
• Automatic bevel selection allows
KappaSPX to quickly edge most lenses
by calculating optimal bevel placement
from the furnished data. More difficult or
specialty lenses can be controlled using
a number of customized bevel options
including front curve, percentage, or a
simple rimless.
Automatic maintenance functions—
wheel cleaning, self-calibration, a statistics
and technical log enable the operator to
easily perform routine maintenance without
technical assistance.
KappaSPX’s simple user interface features
intuitive icons, text, and color-coded
messages for effortless operations. Its vertical
design, high-definition screen, comfortable
height, and viewing angle make KappaSPX the
system of choice for everyday use.
• Three groove widths ensure an
optimal fit. KappaSPX uses a patented
grooving design to precisely locate
grooves on very thin lenses and three
groove widths and depths ensure an
optimal fit. Compare groove quality,
no other system can track a groove as
consistently as a KappaSPX Edger.
One of three methods—direct tracer
connection, the edger keypad, or optional
bar code reader—can be used to call
down a job and retreive a shape. Two
probes simultaneously map the contours
of the lens’ surfaces to determine lens
curvature and edge thickness. This
ensures proper lens cutout and optimizes
both bevel and groove placement.
• Patented, soft pin beveling feature
accommodates all lens sizes including
small frames down to 18 mm. Soft
pin beveling eliminates the need for
any manual pin beveling, reducing lens
handling and decreasing the potential
for spoilage or breakage. With this new
feature, consistency, control, and quality
greatly improve.
