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 that enable speed profiling 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.
