MANUFACTURING

FocalPoints is a collection of linked software programs that helps lens manufacturers integrate and exploit modern lens technologies.

Upon scanning the 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.

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.


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 the User in managing production's queues by prioritising jobs on different criteria: 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 Traceability 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.

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.

Autoloader Module

AUTOLOADER MODULE

The Autoloader Module is an advanced tray management system for DAC® 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.

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.

UDI + Barcodes

UDI + BARCODES

Following the new requirements of recent regulation, FocalPoints is capable of printing the UDI, as per FDA regulation, on the case labels or any other related documentation. FocalPoints can also print both mono and bi-dimensional barcodes (PDF 417, QR Code, Micro QR, Data Matrix), giving the ability to optimise the space available on the case label.
