Santinelli ICE 1000 Super Intelligent Blocker

Santinelli ICE 1000 Intelligent Blocker

Used Santinelli ICE 1000 Lens Blocker

The Santinelli ICE 1000 is an “intelligent” lens blocker that automatically detects the optical center of a lens to ensure the lens is correctly shaped for mounting in a frame. This sophisticated device has a built-in CMOS camera, which provides an uncut lens outline, and a built-in tracing unit, which provides a lens-shape image. Both images are simultaneously displayed on a LCD screen, allowing the practitioner to verify the diameter of the uncut lens prior to blocking.

Automated Accuracy

The Santinelli ICE 1000 offers the following features:

  • Motorized alignment – The practitioner can accurately block a lens by placing the lens in the approximate center of the lens table.
  • Auto lensmeter functionality – The practitioner can block a single-vision lens without marking its optical center.
  • Push-button simplicity – The optimum pressure for blocking a lens is achieved with the simple press of a button.

The ideal tool for processing lenses, the Santinelli ICE 1000 lens blocker can be purchased used – at a significant savings over the cost of a new device – from Vision Equipment Inc. We stock a wide variety of professionally refurbished lens blockers and other used optical equipment, and our industry-leading warranty and support help to ensure a long and issue-free equipment lifespan.
