The EBC 900 is SCHNEIDER’s advanced coating solution for medium-sized and larger Rx labs. State-of-the-art process technology and proven components combine to provide the shortest process times and make the EBC 900 a powerful and reliable batch coating system. Its high performance EBG system and crucible configuration provides full evaporation material flexibility – whether on a segmented dome or a flip-over system.

Layer properties are optimized with Ion Assisted Deposition using Ar or O2 to guarantee best process qualities on organic or glass lenses. With the optimized design of the vacuum chamber and protection shields, shield changes are not only minimized but can also be done faster and easier, resulting in less downtime during production. The modular design is upgradeable for higher productivity requirements.
