Satisloh Intros Fully Automated Water Jet Deblocker


Product: ART-Deblocker-2
Top Line: The ART-Deblocker-2 is Satisloh’s next generation of fully automated ART deblocking technology. It separates lens, block-piece and adhesive using a high-pressure water jet, enabling labs to fully automate their surfacing operation.
Close Up: “We’re committed to providing environmentally-friendly solutions and are pleased to present ART-Deblocker-2, the next generation of deblocking for our breakthrough Alloy Replacement Technology (ART). The machine is designed for maximum robustness in multi-shift operation, significantly faster than its predecessor and, since all pumps are integrated inside the machine, has an 18 percent reduced footprint including peripherals. Because it’s a fully-automated waterjet deblocker, labs can completely automate their surfacing operation—increasing throughput and efficiency,” said Rich Hughes, president of Satisloh North America.
