Briot USA Launches Edger Featuring Patented New Tracing Technology at Vision Expo East

Cumming, GA: Briot USA, a brand of the Luneau Technology Group, launched their newest edging system at Vision Expo East this March. Perception, a feature packed entry level edging system, introduces Briot’s patented Gravitech® technology, a new concept in optical shape recognition.

Perception, designed on the popular Emotion platform delivers a compact, sleek, all-in-one system with multiple functionalities geared for ease-of-use and fast processing of lab work. Perception features easy shape modification, parallax free digital blocking, and a flexible edging process to meet the individual requirements of each job.

Multiple programs for bevel, groove, safety bevel, and polishing allow for high quality finishing results. The robust job memory allows up to 300 jobs to be stored and easily accessed, while the large shape memory can store up to 200 shapes at a time. Perception is also enabled for remote tracing via OMA V3.07 for maximum performance and flexibility in finishing requirements.

The Perception is powered by Gravitech®, a new technology where shape information is captured using a patented algorithm based on the gravity point of the lens to achieve highly accurate measurements within 5 seconds of lens placement. Edging around the gravity point allows for perfect shape reproduction and precision in sizing offering an exceptional first fit ratio.
