MEI launches Shape Finder 2.0
Milan, Italy-MEI recently released the Shape Finder 2.0, an optical scanning device which aims to improve and complete the functionality of the EzFit edger. EzFit can now be equipped with Shape Finder 2.0 to prepare the edging process of sport and special lenses.
Shape Finder 2.0 is designed to be integrated into the MEI Tecnocam programming platform, which is installed in every MEI edger, and to avoid all standard camera-based units’ common errors. The camera lens set and the lighting system is designed to emphasize the edge profile in any kind of lens-clear or dark mirrored-and to eliminate the perspective effects and field distortions. The Tecnocam software installed in the EzFit machine interacts directly with the Shape Finder 2.0 interface to align the lens and extract the different shapes starting from the outer main shape and converting them into a standard TRX file.
According to the company, the Shape Finder 2.0 can shorten the time needed to import a sport lens shape, as well as to detect any hole in rimless demo lenses. The camera system gets a TRX or OMA file with a few steps, reducing the need for edging tests and size and shape adjustments.
