September 24, 2018 – EINDHOVEN (the Netherlands) & ALPHARETTA (GA, United States of America)
Luxexcel announced today the opening of the new US-based Customer Demonstration Lab in Alpharetta, GA (greater Atlanta area). The facility will house a full Luxexcel VisionPlatform™ system and supports the Luxexcel customer base.
“After opening our North American Headquarters in January 2018, we are ready for the next step by expanding to a fully operational Customer Demonstration Lab in Alpharetta. The demo location will strengthen the company’s North American customer support and will give US-based labs a unique preview of the Luxexcel VisionPlatform™ technology and its integration into a typical lab environment” said Guido Groet, Chief Commercial Officer Luxexcel.
The Customer Demonstration lab will provide the opportunity to show the VisionPlatform™ creating ophthalmic lenses and will run sample production for selected strategic partners. In October, the Customer Demonstration Lab will be fully operational.
The Luxexcel technology combines hardware, consumables and design-software in one ophthalmic lens 3D printing solution called Luxexcel VisionPlatform™. Ophthalmic labs receive the complete platform, which includes a printer (VisionEngine™), resins (VisionClear™), support and software solutions (VisionMaster™), in return for a base plus click fee payment. In addition, Luxexcel offers a VisionMaster™ virtual solution for those labs not ready yet for a full VisionPlatform™ called VirtualEngine™. Lenses produced are ISO Focal Power compliant and compatible with today’s industry coatings and customary processes.. The Luxexcel VisionPlatform™ can be integrated into today’s ophthalmic lab workflow.
Luxexcel is exhibiting at Vision Expo West 2018, Las Vegas, September 27-29. To learn more about the company and its latest developments, please visit booth #LP9109.
Luxexcel is the only company in the world with technology that can 3D print ophthalmic lenses. The company started printing commercial lenses in in 2017 and has optimized its 3D print technology for the ophthalmic market. The unique and highly accurate technology allows manufacturing lenses without the need for surfacing or polishing. Key benefits of the technology are the ability to eliminate operational inefficiencies and the creation of new and unique ophthalmic products. This technology is considered the gateway towards eyewear which is radically different from what is available today including solutions of prescription correction for smart glasses and augmented reality solutions. Currently, two US-based ophthalmic labs have an installed VisionPlatform™.
