The latest revolution of NIMO
Measuring diffractive IOLs in 30 seconds
Measuring diffractive IOLs in 30 seconds
The limitations of the metrology of diffractive IOLs have been shattered by the arrival of the latest NIMO instrument from Lambda-X…
To drastically reduce the measurement time while improving the convenience and the characterization of the lenses, our ophthalmic team has developed NIMO TEMPO, the latest revolution of the NIMO family!
Speed, stability, traceability and R&r (Repeatability & reproducibility) are many of the advantages of this newcomer on the ophthalmic market.
The breakthrough in speed for the measurement of diffractive IOLs brought by NIMO TEMPO benefits both in R&D and production contexts.
Thanks to the development of TEMPO-MENTOR, the dedicated software, NIMO TEMPO reaches an unequalled speed of measurement and characterization.
In just 20 to 30 seconds, the user is provided with full details results for any type of IOLs.
Measurement completeness and innovative results accelerate the development phase of new optics. Moreover, the data acquired are stored in a project file which can be reused afterwards for further analysis, ma- king research work much more effective.
The full acquisition and processing for a multifocal toric lens only takes up to 20 seconds: less than 3 seconds for data acquisition, then 17 seconds for processing. During the processing phase, the lens can already be taken out of the instrument and replaced by the next one. This translates into debottlenecking the production line and helps generate substantial additional income.
Through its many features, but also thanks to its ease of use, NIMO TEMPO is the most convenient solution for measuring IOLs both in installation and operation steps.
Lambda-X CTO Philippe Antoine develops on the convenience of this new instrument.
The instrument does not require any dedicated optical table. Thanks to its high stability, NIMO TEMPO can be installed on a simple tabletop without impairing the measurements. This convenience also gives comfort to the operator who conveniently sits in front of the instrument.
By using the dedicated wet cell injector, NIMO TEMPO autonomously positions the lens and runs the data acquisition of data without any specific alignment required. Through sophisticated algorithms, the TEMPO-MENTOR software detects the optical center of the lens. It aligns the measurement aperture of this center before processing calibration, storing all acquired data and providing comprehensive measurement results.
Olivier Dupont, CEO of Lambda-X, addresses the convenience of NIMO TEMPO both in R&D and Production environments.
Stability, speed and precision are just a few of the benefits this new instrument brings to the market.
Through one single automated operation, NIMPO TEMPO provides the full characterization of the diffractive IOL. This pushes the boundaries of R&D and provide full quality assurance in operation.
NIMO TEMPO offers the most comprehensive characterization of diffractive IOLs: from the automatic detection of toric marks to the visualization of the diffractive steps. The instrument provides superior accuracy (better than 0.3 % of measured power) for power, cylinder, additions and MTF for all types of lenses.
After the definition of the conformity criteria by the QA team, the user interface of TEMPO-MENTOR provides a simple Pass/Fail presentation to the production technicians, accelerating the process by offering a user-independent diagnostic.
By providing a full characterization of any type of IOLs, TEMPO-MENTOR, the software associated to NIMO TEMPO, has become the fastest tool to measure and analyze lenses. The results from the characterization include :
The API allows production and QA management to set, edit and control system parameters of all the instruments (calibration data, user management, instrument’s references, etc.).
Shop floor management can create, edit and lock measurement templates (set of options for IOL measurements, tolerances, report generation, etc.) for the entire network of Lambda-X instruments used on-site as well as in distant locations.
The API opens the doors to the automation of measurements by controlling the sequence of operations, such as:
In short, the API makes it easy and convenient to interface with robots of any type. Upstream and downstream of NIMO TEMPO®, it exploits its unique measurement speed: the acquisition time of any type of diffractive IOLs is 3’’, allowing handling operations to be managed in masked time while NIMO TEMPO® fully characterizes the lens, which takes 17 to 27’’ after acquisition.
This feature is essential to build a complete shop floor control system.
Because we believe the best way to demonstrate NIMO TEMPO’s revolution is for you and your team to assess the instrument yourselves, Lambda-X invites you to an exclusive workshop. During this meeting (live or virtual), we will present the benefits and the features of NIMO TEMPO and we will proceed to a live demo of the process.
You can send us your own diffractive IOLs and we will characterize them ourselves in front of your eyes. By using your own lenses, we provide accurate and personalized data that will be stored and sent to you for further verifications.
