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.
