Gerber Coburn Kappa Patternless System

Gerber Coburn Kappa is a computer-controlled, integrated lens finishing system designed to grow with your business. It is a complete system consisting of a tracing and blocking unit, and an automatic patternless edger. The Kappa delivers a wide range of lens bevel and groove options and offers unparalleled speed and accuracy.

The Kappa features the latest technology in frame tracing and edging using three dimensional control. Its enhanced tracing module has the ability to trace either eye and provide separate data for extremely precise edging. 3D tracing captures frame shape and curve and calculates frame tilt from Z measurements. Automatic probing of the eye wire groove profile ensures highly accurate sizes, decreases breakage and increases quality.

Tracing, blocking and edging functions are fully-integrated. Digital trace data is electronically transmitted from station to station as the lens is processed, reducing errors. As production demand grows, up to five Kappa or Gamma Edgers can be connected to a Kappa Tracer/Blocker, increasing efficiency.

The Kappa automatically positions the stylus in the frame and traces both eyes in less than 20 seconds, at the same time determining the frame DBL. After tracing, the lens is placed in the blocker. A video camera captures and displays an image of the lens, without parallax, along with the frame shape. The operator aligns the lens and checks cutout. Block application is motorized and fully automatic.

The Kappa has six automatic and controlled bevel options, as well as lens grooving. In the Kappa Edger, probes map the contours of both surfaces to determine lens curve, edge thickness and to calculate ideal bevel or groove placement. Upon completion of lens mapping, a 3D representation of the finished bevel or groove is shown on the screen, allowing the user to view its position. Placement can be automatic or modifications can be made.

Three groove widths are offered for improved fit. Kappa uses advanced grooving design and computer control to precisely locate grooves on very thin lenses. In addition, operators can probe the contour of the eye wire groove. The probe records the profile of the eye wire groove and the Kappa automatically adjusts the lens size. Measuring eye wire grooves eliminates the practice of edging lenses oversized and re-edging them to fit.

The Kappa edges glass, CR39, hi-index and polycarbonate lenses. An optional polishing wheel can impart a polished lens edge. The system operates with a direct water hookup or a recirculating pump.

Wheel maintenance is automatic, reducing operator skill level. Using a cleaning disk, Kappa controls the timing and pressure for consistent results.

Kappa tracks productivity by lens material, bevel type, groove, edge polish or error record. Sophisticated diagnostics monitor and test system functions including mechanical movements and motors.

Fully-automatic controls, a user-friendly interface, and an ergonomic design make the Kappa extremely easy to use. The full color display highlights icons to indicate available options. Regardless of equipment knowledge, an employee can be trained in the basic operation of the Kappa in as little as an hour.

Gerber Coburn Sigma Patternless

Designed as an entry level patternless edging system, Sigma is simple, compact, and affordable. It employs 4-D processing technology, traditional blocking functions, and a user-friendly interface. And because Sigma is OMA compliant, it can interface with a lab layout system such as Gerber Coburn's Innovations Edge software. As a result, Sigma is ideal for first-time users integrating finishing equipment into their practices.

 

  • Connect the Tracer to the Sigma Blocker and Edger to create a complete, flexible edging system. The tracer's automatic clamping mechanism and stylus insertion speed cycle times, and its' 4-D tracing technology (x, y, z and frame groove angle) provides precise frame measurements.

     

  • An integrated digital system provides a centralized operation for accurately blocking lenses. Its low profile adds to the overall small footprint, saving on valuable workspace.

     

  • Computer-generated lens-specific layout alignment targets help to simplify the blocking process. Its unique color reversal function makes it possible to visualize characteristics of difficult lenses.

     

  • Sigma offers several methods of entering job information. Operators can simply scan with a bar code wand and download job specific parameters, preset customized setting, or manually select settings. No matter how complex a job, Sigma's inherent flexibility enables lenses to be processed accurately and quickly.

     

  • Sigma includes an essential lens mapping mechanism. Prior to roughing, Sigma maps the lens, checks lens thickness and curve and determines circumference. Sigma uses a special program for checking executive lenses to ensure a perfect fit.

  • Bevel Options
    Sigma offers four bevel options. With the automatic bevel selection, Sigma calculates optimal bevel placement from the furnished 4-D data, ensuring the best possible lens-to-frame fit. More difficult or specialty lenses can be controlled using the customized bevel options. Choices include: adjustable front curve, 33% or 50%, or flat edge.

    NEW, patented soft pin beveling accommodates all lens sizes including small diameter lenses down to 24 millimeters.  The soft pin beveling eliminates the need for any manual pin beveling, reducing lens handling and decreasing the potential for spoilage or breakage.  With this new feature, control, consistency, and quality are unparalleled.

    NEW, grooving capability.  Sigma's unique grooving design and computer control precisely locates grooves, even on very thin lenses.  Plus, operators have a choice of setting groove widths and depths in 0.05 mm increments.

    The polishing option is available for plastic and polycarbonate lenses only. Operators can activate by pressing a key.

  • Automatic maintenance functions-wheel cleaning, self calibration, and a statistics and technical log enable the operator to solve certain problems without technical assistance. If telephone assistance is required, those functions provide crucial information for effective troubleshooting.

     

  • Sigma's simple user interface features a customized toolbar, intuitive icons, and color LCD screen for effortless operations. Its large vertical keypad allows operators to easily monitor various edging stages, even at a distance.

    Gerber Coburn Envoy Remote Frame Tracer

    The Envoy is a cost-effective remote frame tracer designed for installation in satellite locations. Linked with compatible remote data entry software, the Envoy sends digital trace data to the processing laboratory via modem. The Envoy is fast, accurate and easy to use and provides the same precise results as Gerber Coburn's in-lab tracing systems.

    The Envoy's 3-axis control captures 3,200 points (A and B, as well as frame curve and elevation) for accurate 3-dimensional shapes. This combination of measurements yields highly accurate sizing, decreases breakage and increases quality during finishing. In addition, the Envoy can trace both patterns and demo lenses for rimless frame styles, by mounting them on a simple fixture. The Envoy sequentially traces both eye wires during the trace cycle (operators may trace one eye if desired). Frame DBL is automatically measured during tracing.

    Designed for a satellite location, the Envoy has a small footprint and an attractive appearance. Its compact size enables it to be located adjacent to a computer running compatible remote order entry software.

    Envoy operation is easy and efficient, reducing operator error and ensuring trace quality. After the frame is inserted, a simple frame holding mechanism is clamped at the touch of a button. At the start of a frame trace, the Envoy automatically inserts the stylus in the eyewire and begins its precise tracing. Upon completion of the first eyewire trace, the trace table shifts, the stylus is inserted again, and the second eyewire is traced. The resulting digital trace data is sent to the computer, and then to the lab via modem for use in surface calculation and patternless edging.

    Patterned after the production laboratory's Triumph Frame Tracer, the Envoy's interface simplifies operation. Users can cycle through the right, left or complete trace selection with a single key. Training is minimal. Users can become proficient in Envoy operation in under an hour. In addition, Envoy's advanced design increases reliability and decreases maintenance, important considerations for remote locations. Best of all Envoy is backed by Gerber Coburn's award winning customer service and support.
