Singulus Technologies is presenting its inline ophthalmic lens coating machine, called Opticus, at MIDO (booth E30 in Hall 6). It is the first time that this machine is being shown operating at a trade show. The first Opticus machine qualified for production last December and three other machines were delivered to customers last year. Opticus' automated production technology and an inline coating process are derived from Singulus' expertise in the production of CDs and DVDs. It enables ophthalmic lens manufacturers to coat eyeglass lenses individually and quickly. All the production steps are carried out in one machine that coats both sides of the plastic lenses simultaneously in less than 30 minutes.
