Reaffirming Leadership in Spectacle Lenses with Essilor’s Innovative CRIZAL®

Ratchaneekorn Mekchai - 17-juin-2013 07:00:45

Essilor Group is world’s number one in spectacle lens industry. The Company is a leader in development and manufacture of high quality lenses, including optical and eye examination equipment. An annual budget of 150 million Euros has been dedicated to research and development, with a team of more than 550 researchers worldwide. The Company has been launching innovative eyeglass lenses, both single lenses and progressive lenses, crafted with patented technologies. Researches find that excessive UV rays can cause eye problems such as pterygium, cataract, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), for which the cure has not been found. Forty percent of the UV rays in prolonged sun exposure can cause cataract. Apart from the sunlight, UV rays can also be found in artificial sources such as fluorescent bulbs, mobile phone screens, computers, etc. Those who wear normal lenses may not get sufficient protection. UV rays not only come from the front but also reflect from the back of the lenses. Wearing   lenses with double-sided UV protection is critical because it is impossible to be aware of UV reflection. This is the same as how miosis and astigmatism cannot be protected . Essilor has developed CRIZAL FORTE UV ® which guarantees 25 times eye-sun protection (E-SPF25). CRIZAL FORTE UV ® combines an exclusive backside UV protection with transparency. Essilor’s new Broad Spectrum Technology applied to the backside of the lens eliminates UV reflection into the eyes. Lenses also prevent UV rays from the front. This innovation allows for UV protection without the need for sunglasses. Wearers also confirmed best transparency from the lens performance in glare reduction, smudge resistance, scratch resistance, dust repellence, and water repellence. For those working at close range or on computers, Crizal Anti-Fatique supports wearer’s accommodation efforts and provides relief to visual fatigue. It also helps prevent computer vision syndrome (CVS) which causes dry eyes and irritation. Each individual’s needs for corrective lenses are unique depending on visual conditions, age, environment, as well as daily activities and lifestyle. Essilor’s Eyecode is another innovative step to help determine corrective lenses which best suit each individual. This includes 3-D visual examination which yields 5 times more accuracy. Moreover, the Company also focuses on special needs such as Azio for Asians. Thissadee TULYAANUKIJ, Essilor Distribution (Thailand) Ltd.’s General Manager said, during the recent press conference on the launch of Crizal FORTE UV, that “Lens and spectacle frames industry in Thailand has an approximate market value of 5,000 million Baht. Essilor’s market share in lenses is at 25%. The Company’s factory is at Ladkrabang Industrial Estate, which is their biggest production base in the world. It manufactures products for distribution in Thailand and overseas. The Company also has prescriptive laboratories as well as leading optical store alliances around the country. This year, the Company’s market share is expected to grow by 10% with focus on middle and high end customers.” “Apart from marketing activities and PR, we focus on providing consumers with knowledge and useful information. We are also dedicated to CSR with the mission to help people to see the world better. Last year, we provided visual examination to Special Olympic athletes and the Rajvithi Home for Girls. We are also planning CSR for this year, of which we will inform you later." “In addition, we wish for consumers to give more care to choosing spectacle lenses because of their direct impacts on visual quality and health. Most consumers pay more attention to spectacle frames while choosing quality spectacle lenses help correct visual problems as well as prevent visual loss. It should also be noted that lenses available on the market are of different grades. Some do not pass quality standards and control while some are tainted with harzardous chemicals”, added Khun Thissadee. About Essilor Group Essilor has a long experience and expertise in development and production of spectacle lenses for more than 160 years. The Company is the merger of two world’s leaders in optical lenses, Essel and Silor , in 1972. From design to manufacturing, Essilor creates lenses for all types of visual corrections and disorders. The Group’s know-how also covers the manufacturing and distribution of optical instruments. By constantly striving to stay at the leading edge of innovation, the Essilor Group has maintained its technological lead. It has a very extensive and homogenous distribution network so as to meet any demand within a very short timeframe. Varilux, Crizal, and Xperio are well-known brands that contribute to Essilor’s success. All of Essilor’s production sites are certified ISO9001, OHSAS18001 and ISO14001 and work in full conformity with the environmental and safety laws. Essilor has 48,700* employees around the world working daily on the group’s development in 58 different countries.

LASELEC develops system to reduce wire waste in industry

Ratchaneekorn Mekchai - 21-févr.-2013 05:50:16

LASELEC, a leader in the UV-laser industry, has designed a new wire-marking system that will reduce wire waste in industry. The company has developed a method that uses ULYS Modena wire markers and an automatic feeding system to reduce waste from 1 metre to between 4 and 12 centimetres. Each time production begins on a new type of wire, up to a metre is wasted, which can lead to substantial costs due to the price of aeronautical wire, for example. LASELEC, a worldwide leader in the UV-laser industry, has developed a method that can reduce such waste to a length of between 4 and 12cm, using ULYS Modena UV-laser wire markers and automatic feeding. The system can be mounted on both single-spool and multi-spool dereelers and, thanks to LASELEC’s innovative design, the system can also be retrofitted on all ULYS Modena machines that are already installed. Using UV lasers to identify electric wiring is currently a method in widespread use in both military and civilian projects, as it is a process that provides indelible marking without damaging the insulation, thanks to the machine’s robust and reliable wire dereeling and cutting system. The ULYS Modena UV-laser range perfectly meets all wire-marking requirements, from the ULYS 110 , which is an entry-level machine that is suitable for low-production rates, to the ULYS 990 , which has unmatched productivity. Entities involved in modification, maintenance and repair of aircraft are showing growing interest in this technology. The MRO 200 was developed by LASELEC specifically to meet the needs of such aerospace companies. Devoted to small and medium-size production runs and to unit-by-unit production, this range of markers is used in workshops producing such runs and can be used for rework. The French-based company’s computer-controlled laser cable markers are easy to operate, reliable and efficient. The marking ranges are constantly evolving and have had new models added this year. A key benefit of direct UV-laser marking is a reduction in the wiring weight, which subsequently reduces the weight of the wire-equipped devices, lowering users’ energy costs. Such wire marking is gradually replacing sleeving in the aeronautics industry, and LASELEC equipment is used by all the main aircraft manufacturers, including Airbus, BAE Systems, Boeing, EADS, Embraer, Eurocopter, Northrop Grumman, Sikorsky and Westland Helicopters. The rail industry has also begun using LASELEC equipment, including Canadian rail specialist Bombardier Transportation. Similarly, workshops for industrial vehicles, as well as those for upscale, competition and rally vehicles, feature such equipment, which is specifically suited to their particular requirements. In 2012, LASELEC began to take part in VESUVE, a collaborative R&D project that aims to improve considerably the productivity of aeronautical-cable production by developing the laser solutions of the future. VESUVE will take place within the framework of the French government scheme known as the  Fonds Unique Interministériel (FUI) and will be supported throughout by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The project was selected by ERDF thanks to its innovative approach to wire waste, along with the business that it will generate. LASELEC makes over 80% of its turnover outside France. Since 2004, the company has had great success in India, signing contracts with HAL Group and its subcontractors, including ROSSEL and AMPHENOL-SEFEE Group, in 2011 and 2012. The reliability and quality of LASELEC products and its customer service are acknowledged worldwide, especially in Japan where the company founded a support centre in 2011 and established relationships with FHI, JAMCO, MHI and SANYU.  Moreover, LASELEC is successful in China, where it has a range of customers, including Changhe Aircraft, Lode Technology and Shanghai Aircraft. LASELEC is also well-established in America, thanks to the Customer Support Service provided by LASELEC Inc. from its offices in Dallas and Queretaro. About LASELEC LASELEC is a French-based specialist in laser technology with over 20 years’ experience. The company provides UV-laser systems for wire and cable marking. The company will attend the following trade shows in 2013: -       HELI-EXPO (USA) from 4 to 7 March 2013; -       Paris Air Show (France) from 17 to 23 June 2013; -       MAKS Air Show (Russia) from 13 to 18 August 2013; -       NBAA (USA) from 22 to 24 October 2013.
