The CB Connect expands the system of the all-in-one surfacing center DSC Prolab with a revolutionary alloy-free blocking solution. Key to the blocking system is the environmentally friendly blocking media Connex. Intelligently interlinked, the CB Connect and DSC Prolab work together to provide maximum ease of use and significant reduction of investment costs.

One control – two systems
The single DSC Prolab control system manages the entire process – generating, laser marking, polishing and now blocking.


Computer controlled adjustment
A videobased positioning and centering system assists the operator during the highly precise lens alignment.

Small system – huge diversity
If plano, prism, centered, de-centered, Rx, PAL and freeform lenses – the handy unit meets every blocking requirement.

Fast blocking
Blocking takes less than one minute and processing can start just shortly after.
The highly cost-effective non-alloy blocking system expands the broad range of opportunities of the DSC Prolab significantly – two pieces become a merged system.
