Warnings, Cautions, and Notes as Used in this Publication
Warning
Warning notices are used in this publication to emphasize that hazardous voltages, sharp
edges, or other conditions that could cause personal injury exist in this equipment or may
be associated with its use.
In situations where inattention could cause either personal injury or damage to
equipment, a Warning notice is used.
Caution
Caution notices are used where equipment might be damaged if care is not taken.
Note
Notes merely call attention to information that is especially significant to understanding and
operating the equipment.
This document is based on information available at the time of its publication. While efforts
have been made to be accurate, the information contained herein does not purport to cover all
details or variations in hardware or software, nor to provide for every possible contingency in
connection with installation, operation, or maintenance.
Safety Reminders
•
DO NOT operate this machine until you have read and understood this manual. If operating for the
first time, ask your supervisor or a qualified operator for help.
•
DO NOT attempt to bypass or circumvent the built-in safety features -- the safety switches and the
chip chute cover. They are in place for operator protection. Any alteration, removal or damage can
cause a serious safety hazard. Doing so will void your warranty.
•
DO NOT attempt changing cutters or any machine maintenance or repair until you have turned the
cutter motor switch to OFF.
•
This product is not intended to be used in an explosive environment.
ROTATING CUTTERS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY.
USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN WORKING NEAR THE CUTTERS.
•
Plug unit into a grounded receptacle ONLY! Do not cut off the ground prong or use any cord or adapter
without a ground prong.
•
Always assume that the power and motor switch are ON. Do not attempt any cutter change or
maintenance until you have verified they are OFF.
•
When changing inserts, always make sure that the insert clamp(s) are tight before starting the machine.
•
Never turn the machine or the cutter motor on while someone is performing maintenance or repair.
•
Always wear safety glasses with side shields when servicing the machinery.
•
Never operate this machine while on medication which may affect sight or coordination.
•
Under normal operation, the 7E produces sound levels within the requirements of the Occupational
Safety and Health Administration Regulations. However, the use of the 7E with other noise producing
equipment may raise sound levels to a degree where hearing protection should be worn by the user.
Therefore, if the user's environmental circumstances cause a projected noise dose of 85% or more
(appropriate testing is recommended), the use of hearing protection is highly recommended. Further,
sensitivity to noise levels may depend on the individual user. While the 7E operates within accepted
noise standards, the use of hearing protection should be considered by the user should the user experience
discomfort or abnormal hearing sensations during use.
•
The 7E should be lifted very carefully by two people. Before attempting to move or lift the edger, ensure
that all connections (electrical, communications, and vacuum) have been disconnected from the edger.
To lift the edger, each person should carefully lift the edger from the bottom of each edge, using both
hands.
THINK SAFETY FIRST—ALWAYS PRACTICE SAFE WORK HABITS.

General Description
The 7E is a state-of-the-art 3-axis patternless edger. It will process Polycarbonate, Hi-index,
Trivex, and CR-39 lenses with exceptional accuracy. Standard features include safety beveling,
polishing, grooving, drilling, and calculated decentration. The clamping pressure applied by the
7E’s electric chuck or the optional pneumatic chuck is automatically adjusted by the selection of
lens material, addressing A/R crazing issues.
In addition to its superior mechanics, the 7E’s unique software can accumulate statistical lens
information that most operators now keep manually. Automatic maintenance prompts will remind
operators to maintain their equipment.
Conventions Used in This Manual
The names of screens and fields within screens will be placed in Italics, for example, the Setup

Requirements for Use
Electrical Ratings
115 VAC Models: 15 Amps, 60 Hz
230 VAC Models: 7.5 Amps, 50 Hz
115 VAC 60 Hz 20 AMP Electrical Supply
The 7E Edger System should be on a dedicated circuit (no other electrical loads connected to the
same circuit) to ensure a uniform, consistent power supply. The maximum continuous power
consumption of the edger, including the vacuum, is 14.3 Amps. The 7E must be properly grounded—
do not use any adapter that will bypass the grounding plug.
Power fluctuations can adversely affect production and machine integrity. Please contact the factory
if you have power glitches or questions about the power requirements.
Note
The 7E is available for 230V 50 Hz installations. It is also recommended that
230V units be installed on a dedicated circuit.

Initial Installation
There are three phases to setting up the 7E:
1. Setting up the cabinet (skip if you already have one) or preparing the work bench
2. Setting up the vacuum unit
3. Setting up the 7E edger itself
Within the final phase of setting up the 7E, there are seven main steps:
1. Placing the 7E on the cabinet and connecting the vacuum unit
2. Removing the shipping brackets
3. Connecting the 7E to your electric outlet
4. Powering up and calibrating the probe
5. Filling the coolant reservoir (the water bottle)
6. Wetting the sponge for initial use
7. Setting up communications for job information

Setting Up the Workspace
Preparing the Cabinet
The 7E can be shipped with a cabinet, which is custom designed for the application. You can choose
either to use the custom cabinet, or mount the edger on a standard workbench. If you want to install
the 7E on a workbench already present in the lab, proceed to “Preparing the Workbench” below for
making the necessary cutouts.
To set up the cabinet, follow these steps:
1.
Remove the cabinet and cabinet top from the box.
2.
Place cabinet top, white side down, on floor and position it so that a power outlet is easily
accessible.
3.
Place cabinet upside down on cabinet top, with the doors on the same side as the cutout in the
cabinet top.
4.
Attach cabinet to cabinet top with screws provided.
Preparing the Workbench
If you are not using the supplied cabinet, ensure that the position you select has easy access to an electric outlet; then
prepare the bench surface to be used by cutting an opening for the vacuum hose and vacuum power cord as shown
below:
Note
In addition, you may need to add a 2-inch diameter hole behind the
machine to route the vacuum power cord to the back of the 7E.

5.
Turn the switch to the ON position—its cycling is controlled automatically.
Setting Up the Vacuum Inside the Cabinet
To set up the vacuum correctly, follow these steps:
1.
Place the vacuum unit inside the cabinet positioned so that the anti-static hose can reach from
the vacuum inlet to the underside coupling of the edger chip chute (refer to the left portion of
the drawing shown below). Connect the short, flexible hose from the vacuum head to the
rubber boot on the back of the cabinet.
2.
Run the power cord through the vacuum/power cord hole in the bottom of the cabinet. After
you have placed the 7E on the cabinet, plug the vacuum power cord into the back of the 7E

the vacuum. In order of preference, these methods are: (1) Attach the eyelet directly to the
ground frame inside the housing of an electrical outlet (preferred) or to the faceplate screw on
the front of the electrical outlet. (2) Attach the eyelet to a grounded metal water pipe. Make
sure the water pipe is grounded, using an ohmmeter to check the continuity between the pipe
and earth ground (grounding rod). (3) Attach the eyelet to the front right bolt of the left chip
chute support, running the ground wire up through the chip chute hole.
4.
Properly ground the anti-static vacuum hose: The green, yellow-striped ground wire,
attached to the anti-static segment of the vacuum hose, has an eyelet attached to its end.
Attach this eyelet to the same ground as the vacuum itself if the wire will reach. (The three
suggested methods to grounding the vacuum are the same as listed above for the vacuum itself,
in that order of preference.)

Cutter Motor Replacement
Motor bearings are the primary limitation on the motor’s life, and increasingly loud operation is the
most common sign for need of replacement. The motor should be replaced following these steps:
1.
Turn the cutter motor controller and the edger OFF. Unplug the motor from its connection to
the controller unit and unplug the edger from
the wall outlet.
2.
Loosen the two screws on the Cutter Body
using the 3/32-inch T-handle hex driver that is
provided in the 7E Accessory Kit, as shown in
the picture on the right:
Set screws
Caution
Avoid stripping the hexagonal screws on the cutter body in Step 2 above.
Make sure that the 3/32-inch hex driver you use for the removal of the
coupler is not badly worn. A new 3/32-inch T-handle hex wrench is
provided in the 7E Accessory Kit.

4.
With caution not to cut your fingers on the
blade, remove the Cutter Body from the motor
shaft.
With the 3/16-inch hex wrench from the 7E
Accessory Kit, unscrew the four bolts on the
adapter plate that hold the motor on the
bracket.
Remove
these four
bolts.
Note
Check the position of the electric cord as it
comes out of the cutter motor (horizontal
toward the front of the machine). In
Step 7, you will need to place the new
motor in with the same orientation.

Calibrating the 7E
5
The 7E can be used with the standard Dual Polish cutter body. The optional cutter bodies include
the Multi-Cutter body, Specialty Cutters, Front Shelf Cutter, and an End Mill Cutter. Refer to the
individual calibration sections for each type of cutter body for both calibration and specifics about
polishing, etc. Refer to Appendix C, “Reference,” for a list of available blades.
The 7E arrives from the factory already tuned and calibrated; however, small adjustments may be
necessary after shipment. In normal operation, calibration should be checked daily and adjusted if
needed.
Calibrating the Probe
The 7E edger will automatically measure the 58 mm Calibration Disc to determine the relative
locations of the probe tip, bevel, and size carriages. The diameter of the 58 mm calibration pattern
will be measured using both the right and the left probes, which will be used by the 7E to determine
size and bevel location.
To calibrate the probe:
1.
Locate the black 58 mm Calibration Disc and the Pattern Duplicator Adapter (PDA) in the 7E
Accessory Kit.
2.
Turn on the power switch.
3.
You will see a message box on the initial 7E screen stating, “Calibrate probe? Mount
calibration disk and press OK to continue or Abort to cancel.” When you see this prompt,
chuck the probe disk (that is, place the PDA on the disc and insert into the Chuck; then press
the
Rev. 1.12
key to lock it into place).
4.
Press the OK function key F1 and wait while the probe calibrates itself.
5.
When the 7E is finished calibrating the probe, remove the PDA and disc.

Dual Polish Calibration: Overview
The table below indicates times when calibration should be checked for the Dual Polish setup. If
you are swapping between any other cutter body and the Dual Polish cutter body, you only need to
calibrate the cutter body size and bevel. If, however, you are replacing the cutter body with a new
one, you will also need to calibrate Wheel 1, Wheel 2, the Safety Bevel and the Groove as shown in
the chart.

Remove the lens and physically examine it:
•
If the lens is not polished at all, enter a value larger than the requested 58 mm into the
Measured Size field. For example, enter 58.05 in the Measured Size field to decrease the
polish size, which makes the edger polish more.
•
If the lens is polished everywhere, enter a value smaller than the requested 58 mm into the
Measured Size field. For example, enter 57.95 in the Measured Size field to increase the
polish size, which makes the edger polish less.
Note
Sizing is not as critical as consistent polish on both sides of the bevel. The
next two steps ensure that the bevel formed with the cutter matches the
bevel of the polishing wheel. Try adjusting in 0.05 mm increments.
8.
•
If just the back is polished, enter a negative number in the Bevel Adjustment field. For
example, try -0.05.
•
If just the front is polished, enter a positive number in the Bevel Adjustment field. For
example, try +0.05.
Press the OK function key F1 and repeat as necessary until both sides of bevel are lightly
touched.
Note
To conserve lenses, the test cuts can initially be oversized, and then
decreased by 3 mm per iteration. For example, by setting the Box Size to
+6.00 for the first cut, it can then be edged at +3 mm, then +0.00, -3.00,
and finally –6.00 mm, resulting in 5 test cuts per lens.
If you use Circ Size, instead of Box Size, you can accomplish the same
thing by downsizing the Circ Size by –10.00 mm each time.

Note
Sizing is not as critical as consistent polish on both sides of the bevel.
Applying the next two bullets ensures that the bevel formed with the
cutter matches the bevel of the polishing wheel. Try adjusting in 0.05 mm
increments.

•
If just the back is polished, enter a negative number in the Bevel Adjustment field. For
example, try -0.05.
•
If just the front is polished, enter a positive number in the Bevel Adjustment field. For
example, try +0.05.
Press the OK function key F1 and repeat as necessary until both sides of bevel are lightly
touched.
Note
To conserve lenses, the test cuts can initially be oversized, and then
decreased by 3 mm per iteration. For example, by setting the Box Size
to +6.00 for the first cut, it can then be edged at +3 mm, then +0.00, 3.00, and finally –6.00 mm, resulting in 5 test cuts per lens.
If you use Circ Size, instead of Box Size, you can accomplish the same
thing by downsizing the Circ Size by –10.00 mm each time.

Using Pause Mode for Bevel Placement
When to Use Pause Mode
Pause Mode allows you to place the bevel or groove manually or graphically rather than using the
automated (Auto, Front, Back, Center, Base, Fixed, and Percent) 7E bevel placement features.
Use the Pause Mode by visually examining the orange bevel mark on the cutter blade as the lens
rotates or by using a graphical image of the lens. This also gives you the ability to place the bevel
at different positions (more towards the front or back) at different places along the lens’s edge,
perhaps more useful when you have a lens that is thicker on one side than the other.
Using Pause Mode
1.
Go to the Job Screen and set up a job, as you would normally do.
2.
Press the
button—then press it again within five (5) seconds. The message on the
bottom of the screen will change from “Press START again to adjust bevel” to “Bevel
Adjustment Pending.” Note: Pause mode cannot be initiated with rimless lenses.
3.
Before the finishing cycle, the lens will rotate in front of the bevel part of the blade and a
graphical representation of the bevel placement will appear on the screen.
Manual Adjustment: Visually examine the location of the bevel by looking at the orange bevel
mark on the cutter blade to determine where the bevel will be on the lens. If you want to move it to
your left or right, use the 7E keypad numbers 1 or 3 to move the bevel placement. When it is in
the exact location you want, press 2 to finish the cycle.
Graphical Adjustment: The first two function keys, from left to right, are CCW, meaning move
the pointer counter clockwise and CW, meaning move the pointer clockwise. This controls where
the pointer is located, to be used with the next two function keys.
The third and fourth function keys are 1pt Front, meaning move the bevel in towards the front at the
location where the pointer is located and 1pt Back, meaning move the bevel back at the pointer
location.
The fifth and sixth function keys, Full Front and Full Back, let you move the bevel in a uniform
manner, around all of the lens, not focused at the point where the pointer is located.
The seventh function key allows you to move the pointer in 90° increments (that is 0° to 90° to 180°
to 270° to 0°).
The final function key is Bevel, which you would press to change the Bevel selection, shown above
as “Automatic”. For example, you might change it to “Front,” to position the bevel toward the front.
When you have positioned the bevel exactly where you want it, press the
cycle.

Edging Section
Eye:
Denotes the eye for which the lens will be cut (right or left).
Note
If you check (place a checkmark “5” in) the Eye Toggle field
on the Setup Screen (under Settings), once you finish edging
the lens for the right eye, it will automatically switch to the
left eye.
Size (Box or Circ): This field will appear as Box or Circ Size (circumference size) based on the Size
Dimension field on the Setup Screen. For either Box or Circ Size, this field
specifies a size correction if the size of the lens to be edged is different from the
traced size. A setting of 0.00 (mm) means that the frame to be used is the exact
same size as the one that was traced to create the specific job (that is, no increase
or decrease needed).
For Box Size, if the Box Size is less than 65 mm, the size offset will affect the “A”
dimension (diameter). If the Box Size is greater than 65 mm, the lens will be edged
to that circumference. If this number is 0.00, the edger will cut the shape exactly
size-on-size with the trace. The operator may use this feature to manually oversize
the first cut or do a light skim cut in the “Re-cut” mode. A Size value of –0.10
during a re-cut will give a 0.1 mm skim cut. Downsizing a re-cut by more than 3
mm from the previous size will require re-probing for correct bevel placement.
For Circ Size, if the Circ Size is less than 65 mm, the size offset will affect the
circumference. If Circ Size is greater than 65 mm, the lens will be edged to that
circumference. If this number is 0.00, the edger will cut the shape exactly size-onsize with the trace. The operator may use this feature to manually oversize the first
cut or do a light skim cut in the “Re-cut” mode. Downsizing a re-cut by more than
9 mm from the previous size will require re-probing for correct bevel placement.
Note
Size adjustments are relative to the original size,
not the previous cut.
Frame:
A-2
Specifies whether the frame is metal, plastic, rimless, or a frame that requires a
standard groove or a wide groove.
Metal
For metal frames; default size offset is 0.00.
Plastic
For plastic frames; automatically defaults to +0.20, but this default oversize
may be adjusted on the Frame Screen. (Refer to the Frame Screen field
definitions.)
Rimless
Cuts a rimless lens; roughs the lens out and finishes with a slow finish cut.
Size overset is done automatically. When “Rimless” is selected, the Bevel
field changes to Probe Mtd (Probe Method)—see definition on the following
page.

Bevel:
Front
Rev. 1.12
You can choose from the following options when selecting bevel placement:
Places the base of the bevel along the front surface of the lens.
Automatic
Places the apex of the bevel 1/3 - 2/3 along the periphery and will
automatically center the bevel on those portions of the lens where the edge is
thinner than the full bevel. This option is recommended for most jobs.
Center
Centers the apex of the bevel on all points on the lens edge.
Back
Places the base of the bevel along the back surface of the lens.
Executive
Centers the apex of the bevel along the periphery and will smooth the bevel
over an executive shelf. Also uses a special probing technique.
Base
This option allows the operator to place a pre-selected base curve bevel around
the edge for improved fit into frames. If selected curve cannot fit, the 7E
calculates a range of legal values and prompts you to choose from those values
after probing.
Fixed
This option specifies the distance of the bevel apex from the front of a lens
in mm. This can be edited on the Job Screen, but will default to the value
entered in the Fixed Bevel Dist. field on the Setup Screen.
Appendix A -- 7E Screens: Field Definitions
A-3
Percent
This option specifies the location of the bevel apex from the front of lens as a
percentage of edge thickness. This can be edited on the Job Screen, but will
default to the value entered in the Bevel Percent field on the Setup Screen.
Note
Automatic, Center, Back, Base, Fixed and Percent placements
may be affected by cutter geometry; specifically, the maximum
front shelf is 5 mm. The front shelf is 3 mm for a polished lens.
Also note that if “Rimless is the frame type, then the bevel
selection refers to the probe method, and the valid selections
are “Executive” and “Standard.” Use “Executive” for
executive lenses.
Polish:
This value toggles between a checkmark “5” and no checkmark “” and
determines if the lens to be edged should also be automatically polished. To
change this value, press the Polish function key or move the cursor to the field and
change its value by pressing the +/- key.
Safety Bevel: This value will toggle between a checkmark “5” and no checkmark “” and
tells the edger if it should place a safety bevel on the lens. To change this value,
press the S. Bevel function key or move the cursor to the field and change its
value by pressing the +/- key.
Blocking:
The Blocking function key allows you to change from Optical Center to Geometric

Blocking field on the Setup Screen.
Optical Center Section
Lens Type:
Specifies the type of lens being edged. The choices are Single Vision, Bifocal,
Trifocal, Quadrafocal, and Progressive. If you select Bifocal, Trifocal, or
Quadrafocal, several additional fields appear as shown on the following page.
Note
For all five of the fields defined above, the information (PD,
DBL, Vert Dec, Seg Ht, and Lens Type) will be downloaded to
the edger if it is available at the third-party computer.
Dist PD or Near PD:
Patient Pupillary Distance in mm. This changes to Dist PD (Pupillary
Distance established when looking in the distance) for single vision
and progressive lenses.
Note
The PD is considered binocular pupillary distance if the amount is greater than
40 mm. If the amount is less than or equal to 40, the 7E interprets that number as
monocular pupillary distance. This is a near measurement for all multifocal
lenses except Executive segments and a distance measurement for all other lens
and segment types.

Smart Roughing:
Optimizes lens placement during the roughing cycle. The options are
“Standard,” “Safe” and “Off.” Which choice is best for your operation
depends on (1) source of lens data (host or tracer), (2) the reliability of
decentration and curve information received from a host (if applicable)
and (3) the percentage of high minus, high front curvature lenses edged
in your operation. The table below shows the recommended settings
for interfacing with a host or directly with a tracer:

In Standard mode the edger will track the front curve of the lens behind
the bevel while roughing, but if the lens is very thick, it may rough
inside the bevel. If only the front curvature data is available, the edger
will track the front curve behind the bevel on the blade during roughing.
When set to Off mode, if the probe detects a very thick lens or very
steep curvature, the edger will measure the front curve and follow that
measurement for roughing. Safe mode is the same as Off mode except
that roughing is done 5 mm farther left.

Multifocal Blocking:
Sets the type of optical center decentration to use for multifocal lenses.
The first option for this field is “Segment center,” which will place the
block on the center of the top of the Seg (MRP). The second option is “5
mm down, 5 mm in” which will place the segment center 5 mm down, 5
mm in. (Refer to the drawing on Page A-4 for a graphical presentation of
these concepts.) When a single vision lens is blocked, it will always be
blocked on optical center, regardless of the setting in this field. The
default is “Seg Center.”
Progressive Blocking:
Sets the type of optical center decentration to use for progressive lenses.
When a progressive lens is blocked using the optical center blocking
method, the operator can choose to place the block at the fitting cross or
to move the fitting cross 5 above the center of the block. The two
options are as follows in the field: (1) “Cross”—this places the block on
the fitting cross; (2) “5 mm up”—this places the fitting cross 5 mm up
from the center of the block. The default is “Cross.”

The selections in this section of the Calibration Screen differ slightly from what is listed below if
you have a Multi-Cutter style cutter body. For more information, refer to the “Multi-Cutter
Calibration” section of Chapter 5, “Calibration.”
Size:
Sets the size for the cutter body. This number affects the size for the
blade, polishing wheels, and groover. This value should be calibrated
after a new cutter body has been installed. This value will be altered with
the Measured Size field on the Size/Bevel Calibration Screen, if Cutter
Calibration = “Body”.
Bevel:
Sets the bevel position for the cutter body. This number affects the bevel
position for the blade, polishing wheels, and groover. This value should
be calibrated after a new cutter body has been installed. This value will be
altered with the Bevel Adjustment field on the Size/Bevel Calibration
Screen, if Cutter Calibration = “Body”.
Axis:
Sets the relative angular position of the rotating chuck. During
calibration, this value is used to set the axis of the edger. Once set at the
factory, this number normally should not change, except when installing a
new axis home switch. To adjust, when the cut pattern is viewed from the
PDA side, increasing this value will move the line clockwise.
Decrementing or incrementing this field may be confusing if there are
negative numbers. For example, if the setting is –4.00 deg., an increase

Measured offset in mm between (or difference between) the polishing
wheel and the blade. Set by factory—do not change.
Trace Size Adj:
Adjust this parameter for frame fit after size verification of the internal
58 mm circle (job number 002). If the lens for frame fits large, decrease
this number. If the lens is small, increase this number.
Blade Type:
Specifies the type of blade you are using. The default is “Bevel.”
Bias Numbers Section of the Calibration Screen
A-22
Size Bias:
Sets the bevel size for the cutter blade. This value should be calibrated
after a new cutter has been installed. This value will be altered with the
Measured Size field on the Size/Bevel Calibration Screen, if Cutter
Calibration = “Blade”.
Rimless Size Bias:
Sets the rimless size for the cutter blade. This value should be calibrated
after a new cutter has been installed. This value will be altered with the
Measured Size field on the Size/Bevel Calibration Screen, if Frame =
“Rimless”.
Bevel Bias:
Sets the bevel position for the cutter blade. This value should be
calibrated after a new cutter has been installed. This value will be altered
with the Bevel Adjustment field on the Size/Bevel Calibration Screen, if
Cutter Calibration = “Blade”.
Wheel Radius:
Defines the cutting radius of the polishing wheels in millimeters (mm).
These are factory set and should not be altered unless a new cutter body
has been installed with different wheel geometry.

Safety Bevel Section of the Calibration Screen
Depth:
Determines how much material (in millimeters) to remove when cutting
the safety bevel. The larger the number, the deeper the lens will come
into the hub during safety beveling, and hence, the safety bevel will be
larger.
Margin:
Influences the relationship between the safety bevel and the back of the
lens bevel. This number (in millimeters) should be adjusted so that the
safety bevel does not cut into the bevel of a thin lens. Increasing this
number will increase the ‘margin’ between the bevel and the safety bevel.
Groove Section of the Calibration Screen
Depth:
Defines the depth of the groove in millimeters for the standard or wide
groove.
Placement:
Adjusts the front-to-back position of the groove on the lens. Increasing
this number will move the groove toward the front of the lens.
Decrementing or incrementing this field may be confusing if there are
negative numbers. For example, if the setting is –4.00 mm, an increase
by 0.50 would be –3.5 mm.
Wheel Radius:
Defines the cutting radius of the grooving wheel in millimeters. This is
factory set and should not be altered.
Wheel Width:
Width of the grooving wheel in millimeters.
Drill Section of the Calibration Screen
Placement:
Controls the placement of the hole in relation to the edge of the lens. If
the hole is too close to the edge, increase this number. If it is too far from
the edge, decrease it.
Depth:
Defines the depth of the drill’s forward motion into the lens. If the drill is
not penetrating completely through the lens, increase this number. If it is
drilling too far, decrease this number.
Hole Size Bias:
Allows you to reduce or increase the size of the hole: enter a negative
number to reduce it or a positive number to increase it (in mm).
Displays the diameter of the drill in mm.
Diameter:
Probe Section of the Calibration Screen
Right Probe Height: The height of the right probe tip above the center of the cutter.
Left Probe Height:

Servo Burn-In Screen
Use the Servo Burn-In Screen to burn in a new servo motor, or to view the power graphs for each
servo motor, and to monitor the Home Switch repeatability. It can also be used to warm up the
servo motors after a period of shut-down, for example, after a weekend of non-use. This type of
warm-up is not required, but some operations consider it a good practice.
Servo Test Screen Fields
Graphs:
The graphs show the power required for each of the servo motors
(Bevel, Axis, and Size). A number above 50% for linear axes
(bevel and size) or above 70% for axis may indicate some
carriage binding or other mechanical problem.
