*Note1: About the “Lens Edger”Lens Edger is a machine, which processes optic lenses into various shapes freely. It is usually set up in glasses shops. Also there are some models for massive production in a factory. Although lenses were used to be processed manually by trained technicians, today, almost all lenses can be processed automatically because of improvement of edgers. Especially, Multifunction Edger is highly evaluated with its “Automatic 3D Grooving function”, because grooving had been considered so difficult that it was impossible to computerize for years.
