Operator screen displays buttons for language, communication, job screen configuration, machine configuration, change password, network configuration, lap parameters, and block types.The CTL65 is a compact lens generator turning lathe utilizing Coburn’s patented, single-point precision turning technology to produce conventional lenses, making it ideal for small to mid-size labs. It offers the same reliable and accurate performance of the popular Coburn SL2 generator with updated electronics and hardware for faster processing times and increased throughput. Using the CTL65, semi-finished lens blanks are surfaced, cribbed, and safety beveled in a fast and accurate process. The multi-data system reduces lens spoilage while optimizing lens and lap cycle times, thereby eliminating the need for an expensive water reclaiming filtration system. The CTL65 benefits from higher performance, user-friendly software, and yields a consistent one-step fine surface finish for all traditional Rx lenses.
