Tumbler Polishers

  • Overview +


    Tumble polishers for intra-ocular lenses are available in a range of sizes, in single or multi-tiered options. They use a simple but safe and robust operating principle, allowing for total control over the tumble polishing process.

    Each machine is fitted with one or more pairs of rollers. In each pair, a rubber-covered roller works together with an idler roller, which is mounted on heavy-duty ball bearings. The rubber-coated roller (which grips each jar as it turns) is driven by an energy-efficient electric motor. (For example in the 24 inch single tiered option, the roller requires only a 1/3 horsepower motor, and the 40 inch roller uses a horsepower motor.)

    The rollers are mounted on self-aligning bearings which can be easily moved to accommodate different sized jars. Jar steadies on each tier are fully adjustable for the full lengths of each jar, regardless of jar combinations.

    All the polishing machines are solidly constructed from fabricated steel with individual drives and controls to each tier.

    The tumble polishers offer variable speeds and duration timers. The seated motors come complete with thermal overload protection. The multi-tier polishers have an optional mesh cover, which improves safety if the tumble polisher is placed in an exposed position in a laboratory.

    Jars are available in a variety of jar sizes. All jars are white porcelain, of inert, iron-free, acid-proof material. This allows easy cleaning and ensures the prevention of any form of contamination.
