Running freeform full speed
The freeform generator HSC giant FF has been specifi cally developed for modern labs which have a need for maximum throughput and minimum cost of ownership. The new machine design enables the simultaneous processing of two Rx or freeform lenses at incredible speed without compromising quality – even for highest standards.
At the heart of the HSC, the proprietary CS-tec motor guarantees smooth
running and high stability during the lens processing. The small surface
roughness of the lenses makes them perfectly prepared for polishing with
adaptive tool technology for Rx and freeform lenses. The high-performance loading system optimally coordinates machine processes with up to three
lenses at a time. State-of-the-art controls and high-performance processors.
The HSC giant FF brings freeform production to a new level of productivity. Industrial high-volume freeform lens production has arrived.
Two independent workspaces.
The innovative machine design of the HSC giant FF is the solution to one of the most critical challenges of today’s high-powered multi-tasking generators – the control of cross vibrations between simultaneously running processes. The new machine design with two decoupled workspaces in conjunction with specially developed damping controls allows reaching sub-micron accuracy during the fi ne turning process of a lens while the milling unit already cuts the next lens with full power. An optional on-board laser unit writes the alignment marks and product identi fi cation onto the lens right after turning. This results in a very affordable solution that guarantees very fast marking and best accuracy without the
Rugged design. High reliability.
What used to be strong in current HSC generators has been made even stronger to handle the incredible throughput of the HSC giant FF. The extremely stiff, inclined machine base has been specifi cally optimized for the simultaneous processing of two lenses. And this holds true of the other components as well: Stability and durability have been the design premise of the guidance system and the high performance spindles. SCHNEIDER’s special vertical chip fl ow and upside-down confi guration guarantees that the huge amount of swarf goes straight down into the drainage, supporting continuous processing of polycarbonate and other long-swarf materials.
The optional Auto Tool Detection uses a reliable non-tactile optical measurement system for precise Auto Tool Adjustments. Also an add-on, the Power Safety System reacts within micro seconds in the case of unexpected power failures eliminating the risk of machine damage.
Lowest cost of ownership
The efficient combination of the processing steps – rough generating, high speed cutting, and automation – results in an unprecedented productivity of the HSC giant FF. Where several generators were needed in the past, now a single HSC giant FF gets the same Rx and freeform performance at signifi cant lower cost.
