Horizon II Edger

Speed,Accuracy and Convenience of
Dry-Cutting Technology

 

Vacuum System

Plastic debris is removed by a vacuum system, eliminating the need for coolants.

 

Optional Cutters

As factory equipped, the edger will cut bevel and rimless interchangeably. Optional cutters expand edge peripheries to a dozen finishes, including Grooving, Faceting, Shelving and Roll & Bevel.

 

Cuts all shapes, sizes and powers of CR-39, Polycarbonate and Hi-Index lenses without changing cutters. Carbide blades cut instead of grind, so there is no rounding of the bevel. Standard cycle time is less than one minute.

Variable Flow Control

Standard cycle time is less than one minute, with a 20 second finish-only cycle for touch-up. Even the largest Poly lenses can be edged in a single cycle with a slower flow control cycle.

 

All Electronic

Fully integrated circuitry eliminates microswitch adjustment, ensuring high reliability.

 

Proven Performance

Thousands of installations worldwide have proven the Horizon II to be a workhorse of the industry.

 

Two Bevel Placement System

Two fully-adjustable bevel guide systems are standard: A Teflon Guide Wheel which tracks the actual front curve of the lens or a Cam Tracking System which duplicates nominal base curves. Both

systems provide for fully variable front-to-back placement on all periphery finishes. Each system

features a cycle-pause feature which allows the operator to easily make bevel placement adjustment

mid-cycle.

 

Pattern Making

Pattern from a lens capability, a feature unique to dry edging, is standard.

 

Brushless Motor

Our DC, brushless motor is ultra quiet and more durable than conventional router motors.
