Mei, an Italian supplier of industrial machinery to lens manufacturers and optical chains, has reported that its EzFit No Block compact machine has encountered great market success in just a few months. The device was presented for the first time at Mido 2016, and was then displayed at the Vision Expo trade show. Thanks to the NoBlock module, which also exists as an upgrade, EzFit can automatically carry out lens centering without blocks. This allows for the first time small labs and optical stores to carry out ophthalmic lens edging without blocks. Until now, this was only possible with high-output Mei machinery designed for large-scale companies. EzFit No-Block will be available in November.
