Mei System Introduces 'The Shape Finder'

The Shape Finder
Top Line: The Shape Finder is an optical scanning device designed to be integrated in the Mei Tecnocam programming platform. The device enables operators to avoid typical errors produced by standard camera-based units.
Close Up: The camera lens set and the lighting system have been designed to emphasize the edge profile, to eliminate the perspective effects and field distortion.
The Tecnocam software interacts directly with The Shape Finder interface to align the lens and extract the different shapes starting from the outer main shape and converting them in a standard TRX file.
Key features:
  • Detection of any kind of edge on any kind of lens, clear, dark mirrored, without the need of pencil to highlight the edge.
  • Detection of step-back profile while marked with pencil.
  • Detection of notches and automatic generation of the different edging shape considering the tool diameter.
  • File export in DXF/OMA/TRX format.
Vital Stats: The Shape Finder can significantly reduce the time needed to import a sport lens shape, as well as to detect the holes in rimless demo lens. The camera system creates a TRX or OMA file with a few simple steps, eliminating the need of edging test and size and shape adjustments. Through the optically engineered lens set, The Shape Finder provides high resolution images for the optimized Mei Software detection system. By combining state-of-the-art optics and sub-pixel images detection techniques, The Shape Finder can get precisely defined shapes ready to be used into the Tecnocam programming environment.; (847) 357-0323
