What is the compressed air used for?
Compressed air is a versatile and essential tool in many industries, including eyewear production. In fact, compressed air is used in every step of the eyewear manufacturing process, from the preparation of raw materials to the final polishing and coating of the lenses.
Here are some of the specific ways that compressed air is used in eyewear production:
- Preparation of raw materials: For plastic lenses, it is necessary to mix various resin raw materials. In this process, compressed air powers the pneumatic mixer.
- Molding: Gas molding equipment is mainly used to shape raw materials into lens shapes. Commonly used equipment includes: pressure-forming machines and injection molding machines. Compressed air is used to control the opening and closing of molding molds of various pneumatic components, ejection, etc.
- Cutting: Compressed air is mainly used for shaping and cutting lenses, such as waterjet cutting machines, laser cutting machines and grinding wheel cutting machines. Compressed air is used to blow off the cutting effect and quality produced during the cutting process.
- Polishing: Compressed air is mainly used with air polishing equipment to improve the finish of the lens surface. The polishing process mainly uses a polishing machine, and the polishing machine driven by an air motor needs compressed air to provide power.
- Cleaning: Compressed air is mainly used to remove dust, abrasive debris and residue on the surface of the lens. During the cleaning process, a washer or ultrasonic cleaner is used, and compressed air is used to blow dry and clean it.
- Coating: Compressed air is mainly used to coat the lens with a film to provide anti-reflection, anti-scratch, anti-ultraviolet and other functions. During the coating process, vacuum coaters and spraying equipment are used to spray the material and keep the inside of the equipment dry.
