Santinelli Intros Compact, Economical Edging Station

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.—Santinelli International is introducing its most compact and economical lens finishing system to date, the LE-700 Edging Station. The unit’s simple design and attractive pricing will appeal especially to ECPs with space and budget limitations, the company said.

“Next-step” wizard technology takes the operator step-by-step through the tracing, blocking, edging and grooving process, utilizing a color touch display. The reliable, space-saving unit introduces “tracer-free” technology, measuring demo lenses and patterns within the processing chamber. In addition to tracing the demo lens circumference, its front curve is measured to obtain 3-D tracing data and perform accurate 3-D edging.

The option to add-on a front-loading frame tracer, which confidently handles high-wrap frames, is also available. Its low measurement pressure minimizes frame distortion, assuring superb accuracy. An intelligent blocker is integrated into the sleek design of the LE-700, delivering accurate and consistent blocking results.

“Listening to the industry, we saw a void for a quality, all-in-one finishing system that ECPs can rely on to take them to new levels of customer service and profitability,” said Gerard Santinelli, company president and CEO. “Based on decades of innovative research and design, and backed by our team of highly experienced associates, the LE-700 confidently provides an entry level edging system that will fit in any size practice and within any budget.” n
