Moulding technology

We are developing a novel semi-automated moulding technology for the production of pre-shaped blanks, semi-finished and finished moulded intraocular lenses.

 

The technology will allow for complete control of the manufacturing process and substantially reduce production costs for low and high volume production for various products.

 

The key elements of the technology include:

 

  • Biocompatible hydrophilic and hydrophobic material formulations for moulding
  • Cast moulding of disposable moulds
  • Fully automated handling and filling of disposable moulds
  • Curing and finishing
  • Recycling of disposable moulds

 

The objectives of the moulding technology are to produce a range of products:

 

  • Pre-shaped blanks for hydrophilic material (26%)
  • Semi-finished hydrophobic lens (finished optic but haptics processing)
  • Finished hydrophobic lens (finished optics and haptics)

 

The design and shape of the parts can be modified to fit the requirements of the client.

The technology is expected to be available third quarter 2021.
