Critical Uniformity Requirement for Contact Lens Curing Greatly Surpassed with Despatch Oven

Critical Uniformity Requirement for Contact Lens Curing Greatly Surpassed with Despatch Oven

To manufacture contact lenses, a monomer resin called hydrogel is injected into molds and heat-cured in an oven. The process polymerizes the hydrogel to produce hard, slightly flexible lenses. The lenses are then removed from the mold and transferred to a downstream hydration process. Â-  These hydrogel thermal curing cycles can be relatively long—up to 34 hours—and require a reliable...
