Luxexcel, a specialist in 3D printed lenses, announced today the opening of the new U.S.-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,” said Guido Groet, Chief Commercial Officer of Luxexcel. “The demo location will strengthen the company’s North American customer support and will give U.S.-based labs a unique preview of the Luxexcel VisionPlatform technology and its integration into a typical lab environment.”
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 to 29. Earlier this week, the company also announced it had received a $13.9 million investment and appointed former Solidscape CEO Fabio Esposito as its new CEO.
