MEI continues to invest in the promotion of its milling technology to optical retailers, which currently account for only about 10 percent of its annual sales of around €70 million. As it did at the recent Vision Expo West and Silmo fairs, it will show its compact EzFit machinery for the first time at the Opti and 100% Optical shows in Munich and London next month. Opticians and small labs in North and South America ordered 60 units at the show in Las Vegas or immediately afterwards. The new TBA version of the EzFit, which costs €53,000, can do 20 jobs per hour with any materials, but it has been adopted even for a daily throughput of five or six jobs, according to officials of the Italian company, because of its high degree of automation, its versatility and the high quality of the work performed. The more sophisticated No Block Developer version costs €69,000.
