The technology behind your glasses

Posted by Bert Maes on March 3, 2010


My eyewear specialist has just sent me a personal e-mail. As he knows I’m interested in those kind of facts, he wanted to tell me about the new technological world behind his glasses shop.

He wrote:

We prefer to do the grinding work ourselves. That doesn’t surprise you, isn’t it? To grind your glasses in the best possible way, we now purchased the most advanced machine existing today. The WECO EDGE 650. Through high-precision CAD/CAM technology, we cut, mill, drill and groove your glasses with an accuracy of 0.01 mm (!).

A colleague of mine once said: “CNC manufacturing is what makes our current world turning!”😉
