HSC modulo XTS

Next level generating, intelligently combined



A stroke of genius. Redefining acceleration
With HSC Modulo XTS, SCHNEIDER has accomplished a quantum leap in high-speed cutting, creating the fastest generator in the market.

The heart of the machine is the new and extremely powerful XS-motor, redefining acceleration in ophthalmics. The generator’s machine base has been designed to be extra rigid to withstand the extreme forces exerted.

Combined with high frequency drive technology, a new milling spindle, and intelligent algorithms, an ingenious generator is formed. A sophisticated swarf management system efficiently keeps the work space clean.
The result: The best lens in the shortest time – Full stop.

New super dynamic motor concept
What sets the HSC Modulo XTS apart from any other generator on the market is its intelligent and versatile two-motor concept. The new and masterfully designed XS-Tec motor has been six years in the making and brings great power to the tracks.

With an acceleration of up to 40-times the gravitational acceleration, it exceeds any levels previously known in ophthalmics. In addition, the machine features the proven RS-Tec motor, which has become a benchmark for its high robustness and uptime. The linear motor runs on highprecision guides and supports single-tool and twin-tool operation.

Ultimately, this setup allows you to select the perfect individual combination of milling and turning processes to meet your lens requirements with highest speed.

Most robust design and machine base
Super power can only be harnessed when it’s based on a structure and components that provide ideal support. Therefore, the machine’s components underwent an extensive simulation and design phase. The result: The HSC Modulo XTS’ extra rigid machine base and cross-slide withstand the extreme forces exerted and guarantee highest machine stiffness and process stability.

This way, the great power of the XS-Tec motor is translated into super- fast but highly accurate movements significantly speeding-up lens production. At the same time, highest surface smoothness is guaranteed, one of the key elements of superior lens quality.

New high-performance milling and intelligent swarf management
The new and extra robust spindle is fit for heavy duty processing at highest rpm. Newly developed milling algorithms allow for higher efficiency. The process is significantly accelerated – especially beneficial for lens shapes like e.g. complex crib that are rising in demand.

The HSC Modulo XTS is designed with an encapsulated milling chamber containing the swarf generated and transferring it straight out of the machine. Fumes are directly extracted. All in all, the result is a neat work space requiring less cleaning activities. Reduced downtime and higher throughput is guaranteed.

Integrated measurement system
During the setup of the machine, the Calibration and Verification System (CVS) helps to align the tools. Thanks to the automated process the tools are perfectly calibrated independent of the skill- level of the operator. This way processes are running in spec – lens after lens.

The Modulo advantage
The HSC Modulo XTS comes with an on-board global interface philosophy that allows connection to the Modulo system.

Once connected to the Modulo system, the machine works as an integral part of this one-of-a-kind solution and is subject to the centralized monitoring Control Center. The lab manager is fully informed about the current status of the machine. Therefore critical situations and downtime can be avoided before they arise. Higher uptimes and increased yields are guaranteed.
