Tonometer Service, Sales and Maintenace

Approx 65 percent of tonometers have calibration errors. Tonometers should be checked at least once a month. If errors are present they should be sent in to factory-trained personnel to clean and calibrate. Optitech Usa offers this service on all models of Applanation Tonometers.

These are the steps Optitech USA takes to calibrate your tonometer:

  • The unit is first opened and checked for wear and tear.
  • When no parts need to be replace the calibration process begins.
  • Upon completion of the calibration process the unit is cleaned externally.
  • The unit is next repackaged and returned to you.

National Optronics 4T remote tracing

Remote Tracing Is A Great Solution for You and Your Customers

Do you want to increase your turn time from your lab on EVERY order? Remote tracing may be the solution. Even if you have a finishing lab or full surfacing laboratory, having an in office remote tracer can increase your job quality and turn around time. We have all run into an issue of a labs waiting on a frames before they will start a job, or lenses not cutting out even though you send in the box measurements. Many labs even lose your frames all together. Those issues can be solved by utilizing a remote tracer. The process is very simple and takes only a minute or so as you can see from the videos in the training video section. We recommend tracing every job you send to your laboratory so that you can recall a lens shape, increase the quality of jobs, and save your customers time. These tracers can be hooked directly up to a PC via usb and saved directly to that computer. Even if you have an in house finishing lab remote tracing can still help. Tracing lenses provides the labs with an exact layout of the lenses that their software can utilize to make a higher quality lens and ensure cut out measurements.

Optical Edger And Tracer Maintenance

Routine optical edger and tracer maintenance of your in-house optical finishing equipment is essential for maximizing the life of your equipment. While preventative service calls may still be needed every 6 months to 1 year for major updates and maintenance we recommend the following self maintenance to prolong the life of your equipment.

For Wet Edgers:

  • Clean the the filter and bucket daily or for every 20 pairs of lenses run through the unit.
  • Rinse out the grinding chamber daily (with distilled water) and leave the door open for it to air dry, make sure to check behind the safety plate if your unit has one.
  • Use a small toothbrush to clean off all of the ginding wheels and parts.
  • Avoid using chemicals.
  • Assign a staff member or manager to make sure the maintenance is performed on a regular basis, or keep a log book or journal if more than one person uses the unit or units.
  • For direct water edgers make sure the water and drain are connected properly daily and shut off the water between shifts.

For Dry Edgers:

  • Vacuum out the internal parts of the edger daily.
  • Make sure to check that the hose has proper suction and is free from debris.
  • Empty out the bag and clean off the filter.

For Tracers:

  • Make sure the probe is clean and free of debris and “frame cheese” between each trace.
  • Vacuum out or use compressed air to ensure the tracer chamber is free of screws, wax, or other debris.
  • Following these simple optical edger and tracer maintenance tips will ensure your equipment runs great in between regular service.
