Modulo Line
Self-organizing system

SCHNEIDER's Modulo Line is a groundbreaking manufacturing system combining machines, measurement systems, accessories and conveyors in one single, intelligently interlinked unit. The cognitive machines manage the production flow fully self-sufficient. Its Control Center is more than a conventional MES system allowing for effective trouble shooting assistance and production efficiency monitoring.





Individual freeform lenses are the top product in the market, and SCHNEIDER has grown to be the premier manufacturer of freeform equipment worldwide. The HSC generators and CCP polishers have become the tools used to develop the freeform idea in the ophthalmic industry. The innovative machines have also made their way into standard Rx production, leading to higher productivity and quality of virtually all lenses surfaced today.

The next logical step is a highly integrated system solution: SCHNEIDER's Modulo Line. 

Following an entirely new organizing philosophy, the production flow is managed by the system and its intelligent modules. The result is an unprecedented level of equipment utilization in lens production and unmatched throughput. Designed for utmost flexibility, the arrangement and connection possibilities allow for the addition of new modules with minimal disruption.

Plug-and-play value
The machines are easily integrated into the system with plug-and-play simplicity. The result is a system that reduces the cost and complexity of traditional lab planning and the time to market. Ultimately, the system allows multiple ways to integrate and grow production lines - easily expanding production capability when needed without the pain of a complete 're-engineering' task. 

Controlling the flow
The system intelligently controls the production flow. Once a module is linked-in, the system ensures optimal utilization of the machine in a perfectly balanced production flow. Now, integration of full production lines becomes as easy as can be. 

Handling all situations
The Modulo Line is a very compact and smart processing platform. Its intelligent crosslinking of machines guarantees that your production keeps going in case of an unintended stop of a single processing unit. This reduces the need for maintenance capacity and keeps the yields up. 

Managing the lab
The production is managed by the LMS Modulo which is more than a traditional lab management system. The new LMS seamlessly interacts with the cognitive machines and offers sophisticated new functions. The lab manager gets valuable feedback - higher uptimes and increased yields are assured. 

Modulo growth roadmap
Plug-and-play simplicity provides value to all Modulo customers. The portfolio of Modulo machines will expand in the range of processing steps and performance data with the mission to meet upcoming demands. Every Modulo machine is a ticket into the future.
