MANUFACTURING

FocalPoints manages the entire production cycle: from lathing to inspection, from labelling to shipping. Upon scanning a Job's bar-code, the Lathe receives 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 training.

Launch in Production

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 the 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 by different criteria like: job urgency, rejects, lens design, etc.

Launch in Production Module

INTEGRATED 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.

Enabling Full Traceability

ENABLE FULL TRACEABILITY

The FocalPoints Workshop Full Traceability module captures all data logged by FP programs throughout manufacturing. Access the complete history of each lens—from production to shipping—via a single interface. Each task is time-stamped and linked to the operator. Centralized data storage not only cuts archiving costs but also accelerates data retrieval.

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.

Cycle Management Integration

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 tracks the cycle number, the tray position, the machine id, the cycle's runtime, time-stamp and the list of lenses processed together.

Label Editor Module

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.

Manufacturing Live Dashboard

MFG LIVE DASHBOARD

The Manufacturing Live Dashboard is available as an option for Workshop editions only, providing an interactive interface for analysing production in real time, making informed decisions. The dashboard is automatically updated and provides instant access to manufacturing for identifying production patterns, trends and potential issues before they even happen.

Laser Engraving Module

LASER ENGRAVING

The Laser Engraving Module provides an intuitive visual environment for the precise placement of text, lines, and images. It offers comprehensive control over various aspects, ensuring both ease of use and adaptability. Upon finalizing the desired layout and parameters, the information is seamlessly transmitted to the Lathe's laser engraver for execution, streamlining the engraving process with efficiency and precision.

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.

Autoloader Module
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.

Conforming Arbour Module

CONFORMING ARBOUR

The Conforming Arbour is used to cut an Arbour which mirrors the geometry of a CL base curve, taking into account also the wax thickness. The Arbour can either be symmetric, matching the steepest meridian, or fully asymmetric, following precisely the lens’ surface.

PSC 2.0 Production Database

PSC 2.0 PRODUCTION DB

The PSC 2.0 is the evolution of the FocalPoints production database. The PSC 2.0 was rewritten from the ground up to increase operational efficiency, further ameliorate the Jobs' pick-up speed and improve reliability.
