Hialeah, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2013 -- It's out with the old and in with the new as the very latest technologies continue to be developed that are completely transforming the way prescription eyeglasses are manufactured. These are technologies that are also working to bring prices down and quality up.
The days of prescription glasses being produced by being ground with a dry abrasive and measurements taken with standard scientific grade calibration devices will soon be completely obsolete as new high-tech, state-of-the-art technologies make it all economically infeasible.
So to find out more about the latest news on ultra-high-tech optical manufacturing technologies finding their way into eyeglass production facilities, who better to contact than one of the world's leading suppliers of prescription eyeglass frames and optical supplies?
What an Expert Has to Say
In a recent interview, a company representative for Piazza-Optical.com was able to explain in simple terms how some of this newer manufacturing technology actually works.
He said that, “Fluid jet polishing replaces older dry grinding methods with a high-pressure abrasive infused liquid. It's faster, more accurate and more controllable with automated machinery. The end result is near perfect, fluctuation free optical components. Then with the fluid jet polishing system a laser takes continuous measurements that are continuously relayed into the system as the work is being done.”
“Once again, a higher level of accuracy is achieved, and because the measurements are continuous and ongoing flaws are completely avoided. Then artificial intelligence by way of computer technology oversees the entire system, so all aspects mesh together flawlessly. Specifications for eyeglasses can even entered into the system from a remote location and then the eyeglasses produced automatically. The high-tech machinery that contains all this technology is incredibly expensive now. However, all that's expected to change over time as the patents on the technology contained in it begin to expire.”
Making for Better Quality and Lower Prices
He went on to say that all this is the reason why prices of prescription eyeglasses have remained so reasonable over the course of recent years and sales have become so common.
He also pointed out that as advanced as this new technology is it's still not the end of the road, because new developments are over the horizon, with three-dimensional printing being the most fantastic.
When three-dimensional printing finally becomes available, it will allow prescription eyeglass manufacturers to essentially print out a brand-new set of frames in a three-dimensional format. Since opening in 1995, Piazza-Optical.com has become a leading wholesale supplier of eyeglass frames and optical supplies to retailers around the globe.
