The contact lens market is evolving in a range of ways. From how they are made, with increased production capacity of dailies and reduced cost of monthlies, to how they feel, with better user comfort and management of eye conditions. And how they’re delivered, with direct to consumer business models.
Handling flexible and unstable materials, in humid environments, at high speed, requires a specialist process understanding.
Being able to rapidly launch new products to market is important in a diverse and evolving sector. Pilot lines with proven processes in a compact footprint enable flexibility and cost-effective platforms for future mass production.
Handling a range of prescription powers and shapes, including toric.
We start by identifying exactly what you need from your product and then work backwards with you to find a solution. We map out manufacturing platforms using our proven processes to give you stable and robust yields with compact footprints.
Experienced in developing wet and dry automation, we approach the proof of principle stage with innovation in mind, so you can step up your product design manufacturing efficiency. And our nimble approach means we can scale up to deliver multiple lines in quick succession.
Rest assured, we keep an eye on quality while upping quantity and of course apply product tracking throughout production.
You’ll have our support at every stage of the development process, from research and development to pilot and first production machines to repeated lines. We ensure precision machinery is deployed successfully every time. And afterwards, you’ll be supported by our dedicated customer service team, wherever you are in the world.
Our process and product specialists provide product consultancy, ready-made process solutions and trails.
We sell (R&D) automation process development cells including electrical, pneumatic, control and motion elements. And we specialise in rapid and early automation, introducing automation process validation in a controlled environment.
We provide platform-based solutions for low volume production batches. Either fully automated or semi-automated with operators safely interacting with the machinery. All the benefits of launching to market with a scalable investment – rapid, safe, validated and affordable.
Everything from fully automated solutions, scaling up validated processes to incorporating feeding, inspection and downstream processes. This includes primary packaging, cartoning, case packing and palleting.
