MANUFACTURING

FocalPoints manages the entire production cycle: from lathing to inspection, from labelling to shipping. Every step is logged in the Lens history to ensure full traceability.

Upon scanning a Job's bar-code, the Lathe is fed with the surface's geometry, the blank center thickness and the cutting parameters defined for each model/material. All parameters are fed automatically. The operator performs only loading and unloading operations thus reducing errors and required training.


Launch in Production Summary

LAUNCH IN PRODUCTION

The Launch in Production module generates the file for lens cutting and assists the operator in all the preliminary tasks required to start the manufacturing process: such as printing a production work-order, assigning the Material batch and Tray number if available. The module assists you in managing all the production's queues by prioritising jobs on different criteria like: job urgency, rejects, lens design, specific process, etc.

INTEGRATE MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT

FocalPoints interfaces with the Lathe's control software, accurately tracking the number of and type of lenses cut, rejects and re-cuts. Additionally, it prevents the unauthorised duplication of sensitive lens data files. FocalPoints uses a single line of bar-code to instruct the lathe as to which lens is to be cut, improving efficiency while dramatically cutting down on data-entry related errors.

Tracking the CL History

FULL TRACEABILITY

The Full Traceabilityy module gathers all the information logged by the FP programs during the manufacturing process. The entire lens history, from production to shipping, can be accessed from a single interface. Every task performed on the lens is tracked with a time-stamp and the operator's who performed it. Having the lens history stored in a centralised database, not only reduces the cost of archiving lens work-orders, but also speeds up the data recollection process.

Managing all the Lab's Equipment

EQUIPMENT MANAGER

The Equipment Manager can manage the Lab's instruments registry. FocalPoints can record in the Lens history any measurement coming from all the Lab's instruments, may they be interfaced with FP or not. In the latter case the User will just need to input the data manually.

Sterilization Process

CYCLE'S MANAGEMENT

The Cycles' Management module allows the Lab to record in the lens history the details of additional operations like Hydration, Plasma treatment, Hydra-PEG™ coating and Sterilisation. The module not only tracks the cycle number, but it also stores relevant information like: the position in the tray, the machine id, the cycle's runtime, time-stamp and the list of lenses processed together.

Label Editor

LABEL EDITOR

The Label Editor module allows FocalPoints to streamline the entire printing process: from case labels to shipping labels. Everything is handled with great flexibility and full integration in an easy to use graphical interface. Labels can be designed from scratch, adding fixed text, variable text, images, logos and any order/lens parameter.

Laser Engraving

LASER ENGRAVING

The Laser Engraving Module allows the User to define where text, lines and images will be positioned in an intuitive visual environment. From variables to format, from width to height, from alignment to font details, the Laser Editor guarantees ease of use and flexibility. Once defined the desired layout and parameters, the information is sent automatically to the Lathe’s laser engraver for finalisation.

Autoloader Module

AUTOLOADER MODULE

The Autoloader Module is an advanced tray management system for DAC® and OPTOFORM® lathes which can be added to any FocalPoints system. It is fully integrated and it ensures substantial improvements in the manufacturing efficiency. The Autoloader Module keeps track on which tray each job is associated and allows the Operator to select a job by simply scanning the tray and selecting the physical position of the lens.

UDI + Barcodes

UDI USA + BARCODES

FocalPoints is capable of printing the UDI, as per FDA regulation, on the case labels or any other related documentation using either the QR Code or the Data Matrix format. The module allows to print the most common bi-dimensional barcodes (PDF 417, QR Code, Micro QR, Data Matrix) on the case label.
