A key prerequisite for the compatibility of the spectacles is the precise centring of the lens before the grinding operation. The exact form of the spectacle frame is registered with the Tracer and is routed as data via an interface to a centring system. The centring system, WECO CAD or WECO Verifier Pro, serves to position a block on the lens surface so that the form matched the raw glass completely and ensures that all the centring requirements are complied with.

From the centring system the form and centring data are transmitted to the machine. The Edge 450 disposes of a data memory in which you can save your standard moulds. The form of the lens to be manufactured is displayed on the colour display.

All further settings are made via the clear keyboard which is positioned ergonomically at the display.
