Edging from the freeform pioneer
5 reasons why you should go for SCHNEIDER edgers

More labs evaluate and acknowledge the SCHNEIDER difference every year. And you?



1// smart design
FOR truly independent simultaneous processing

HSE Modulo QS is the first and only edger on the market with four processing stations, setting a new benchmark in industrial edging. Thanks to its unique quattro design featuring two rough cut and two finishing stations, up to four lenses are actively cut at the same time. Non-productive times are reduced to a bare minimum with handling, measuring and edging run simultaneously.
The result: 4 lenses are cut + 2 lenses are measured + 4 lenses in transfer =10 lenses are processed at a time.

HSE modulo is the first high speed double spindle edger for fully independent edging of the left and the right lens. Two separate multi-axis systems enable truly independent simultaneous processing of the lenses – no matter how diverse the job requirements. The edger’s high rigidity and precise tool clamping allow for highest rpm processes. Working with exceptional speed, HSE Modulo sets new standards in performance and throughput.

2// Fastest edging
in the market for massive throughput



The SCHNEIDER edgers fulfill all the criteria for accurate high-speed edging: Built on an extra solid machine base, they feature the high rigidity to produce the smoothest surfaces. Optimized tool interfaces guarantee more balance and accuracy during edging. Together these features form the ideal conditions for very precise edging even with highest rpm processes. Extremely efficient, the edgers process several lenses simultaneously and incorporate time saving parallel handling processes. The result: a new standard in throughput.


3// Basically 2 machines in 1



A special feature of the SCHNEIDER edgers is its integrated LMU lens measuring units that provide both blockless handling and integrated quality control. Contrary to other systems, the LMU measures the full map inside the edger. The result is a fully automated quality control before further manufacturing steps occur. Mismatch is avoided, labor is reduced, and process efficiency gains are unmatched.



The full map measurements provided will identify faulty lenses and facilitate go/no-go decisions.
The measurements can also pinpoint potential errors and problems in the surfacing process like worn tools, bad tool alignments, mechanical defects and necessary parameter (process) optimizations, etc.

analysis and reporting through Control Center integration



HSE Modulo and HSE Modulo QS come with an on-board global interface philosophy that allows for connection to the Modulo system. Once connected to the Modulo system, the machine works as an integral part of this one-of-a-kind system 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 guaranteed.


from one provider: Surfacing, cleaning, coating and edging

SCHNEIDER = Surfacing. Correct. But SCHNEIDER is also: Cleaning, Coating, Edging, Software, Service, Parts, Consumables - you name it. SCHNEIDER is a full-solution provider to the ophthalmic industry offering cutting edge solutions ranging from the small individual machine to the most comprehensive fully-automated production lines to its international customers.
