Satisloh Unveils New Digital Surfacing Micro Line
GERMANTOWN, Wis.—Satisloh is introducing its new digital surfacing Micro Line, which features both a VFT-micro generator and a Micro-Flex polisher. Because of its small footprint and low weight, the Micro Line can be easily integrated into a variety of production environments. Although it is significantly smaller, the Micro Line uses the same technology and produces the same quality and digital accuracy as its bigger brothers the VFT Compact Pro and VFT-orbit.
The VFT-micro generator, based on award-winning VFT engineering, features a patented working chamber design that is inherently stable and consistently produces high quality surfaces. “Our patented barrel shape chamber design eliminates calibration changes due to thermal expansion—so operators have virtually no adjustments to make during daily operation. This assures uniform production quality and throughput,” said Ian Gregg, director, surfacing products, for Satisloh.
In addition, the VFT-micro utilizes a plug and play cutting tool exchange system. This means fast and simple tool changes done by a unique high precision tool holder interface with fixed tool heights eliminating the need for complex calibration procedures.
The polishing unit of the system utilizes Satisloh’s proven Flex polishing technology. The Micro-Flex polishes all organic materials and lens formats, ensuring excellent surface quality, form accuracy and process stability, Satisloh said. The polisher is also equipped with an intelligent tool management system using long-life soft tools for a fast R.O.I.
