Coburn Technologies Introduces New Spin Coater

By LABTALK

Coburn Technologies is pleased to announce the newest innovation in lens coating equipment, the Velocity 2D.

Velocity 2D is the next generation of the current Velocity Automated Spin Coater, now designed with dual-coating technology. Derived from the existing platform of the ground-breaking Velocity automated lens coater, the Velocity 2D now offers labs the ability to coat lenses with two different coating solutions in one machine.

As the first of its kind with this new “dual-coating” technology, the Velocity 2D is truly unique. It can be paired with Coburn’s Duality lens detaper and cleaner to offer labs smart, scalable automation for lens processing, as lenses are detaped, cleaned, and coated in one smooth process.

“Customers have been asking for the ability to apply multiple coatings in one machine for a long time, and we are proud to be the first to deliver this ability,” said Alex Incera, President of Coburn Technologies. “We’ve taken our highly successful and established product, the Velocity, and made it better in this next generation platform.”

In addition to dual-coating technology, Velocity 2D also offers automatic coating height adjustment, spindle speed monitoring, and a variety of other unique process control features in order to effectively ensure proper coating on all lenses.

Meanwhile, the company has announced that their Velocity Spin Coater has been named “Best Value Enhancer (Lab)” by the CiO VisionPlus Awards.

“We are thrilled and honored to receive this award for our Velocity Coater, especially considering our focus on developing innovative technology for the laboratory market,” said Incera. “The Velocity Coater has become the market’s preferred spin coating system, optimizing the yield in many of the world’s largest labs.”

This award is one of 17 awards given annually by the Cairo International Optical Fair’s VisionPlus Awards, landing in the Instruments & Equipment category. Nomination criteria for “Best Value Enhancer (Lab)” include utility, value enhancement, innovation and technology.

The Velocity Optical Lens Spin Coater is a fully automated industrial hard coating system that conveniently transports lenses utilizing a job tray, beginning the process with a multi-stage pre-cleaning system, followed by a secondary cleaning system, coating and curing, and finally returning the lens to the job tray. Velocity is also available in a stand-alone, manual version.
