The benefits of the Luxexcel VisionPlatform™

• A solution to manufacture difficult lenses in-house
• No CAPEX for the lab, Luxexcel will provide a full 3D print setup.
• No blanks required, reduction of inventory and of manpower for stock picking
• No need to reconfigure generators, polishers, blockers and laser markers, the 3D print setup will provide lenses ready to be coated
• No waste, no swarf from generators or polishers, no toxic metals for blocking, no water.

Luxexcel is the only company currently printing ophthalmic lenses. 3D printing is a revolutionary technology to build a lens from tiny droplets. Semi-finished blanks are not needed, as the lenses are built in the shape and prescription required without the need of polishing. They are ready to be coated and edged right out of the printer. 

Especially interesting products to print are those which are difficult or impossible to make with legacy lens technology, such as: 

• Special lenses: high powers, prisms. Lenticulars, slab-offs, etc..
• Customized optics bi/tri/quadri focals: the lab can position additions where required
• Customized cosmetics: the lab can add custom visible markings, sports figures, names, brand logos or names, decorations etc...

There will be regular releases of new products and applications available to our partner labs. Any new future hardware, software, materials and product releases will be provided to the lab directly.

We are at a crossroad of our industry where true innovation allows a global industry to take a new direction!
