As the most compact coating system provided by SCHNEIDER, the EBC 400 accommodates all requirements of a small Rx-lab. Reliable and proven components combined with modern process technology characterize the EBC 400. A compact system, with no compromise in quality and components, to produce highest quality products.

A powerful EBG system with a high number of pockets provides maximum process flexibility. Expanded ionsource power for argon and oxygen use and a water-cooled process chamber guarantee high process stability.
With the new visAR process, the system transfers high-end coating into small Rx-labs weather on organic- or glasslenses. The modular design is upgradeable for higher productivity requirements.
