The DHC 60 is SCHNEIDER's hardcoating system perfectly suited for medium production labs.

An automated mass transfer system guides the lenses through the multi-stage process.

Following a seven step US-cleaning process the lenses are coated in a thermal cure dip-coating process including a primer stage for polycarbonate lenses and two different lacquer types for index matching.

The dip-coating tanks are moved with servo drives in order to execute the process. Those drives are enabled for speedprofiling for optimized lacquer distribution across the lens.

The ideal recipes are selected via a touch screen depending on the lens material and type to achieve best results in quality and cosmetics.
