Coburn Technologies Intros Lab Works Group and All-Material Fining Pad

SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn.—Coburn Technologies has established a new group within the company called Coburn Lab Works. This team of employees within Coburn, headed up by new hire Daniel Clarke, is tasked specifically with the support of independent optical laboratories including the development of new products, product/process support, and insuring a high level of value on a lab-by- lab basis.

“We are taking the energy and resources we used to bring over a dozen new products to market since we became Coburn Technologies, and focusing that same level of effort into our supplies and consumables side of the business,” said Curt Brey, the company’s vice president of marketing and business development.

Sapphire is a new one-step, all material fining pad from Coburn Technologies.
Alex Incera, president of Coburn Technologies added, “We are excited about this expansion of our team and our renewed commitment to independent optical laboratories as we continue with our corporate vision to be the preferred supplier and business partner to the global ophthalmic industry.”

Coburn is also introducing a new one-step, all-material fining pad called “Sapphire.” This new seven-petal pad uses premium self-sharpening aluminum oxide abrasive grains that are precision coated to provide superior life, fast cut rate and consistent finish. Designed to fine all common lens materials that have been lathe generated, except glass, this new pad is available in all standard sizes.

To receive updates on new products or for volume pricing on consumables products, call Coburn Lab Works at (860) 648-4926, or call the Coburn main number (800-COBURN-1) and ask for the Lab Works division. ■
