GERBER COBURN’S ESSIBOX OPENS THE LINES OF COMMUNICATION. Essibox enables all your diagnostic devices, practice management software, and finishing equipment to communicate with each other. It is designed to clear up the sometimes fragmented transfer of data among an office’s mechanical and computerized equipment. Requiring no modifications to an existing organization, Essibox is directly incorporated within a business’ network. To access all its services, all an office needs is a local network and an ADSL connection. For more information, contact Gerber Coburn at 800-843-1479 or gerbercoburn.com.
SANTINELLI EDGES HIGH WRAP LENSES. The New High-Curve feature on the Lex 1000 patternless edger not only cuts 8-base or higher wrap lenses, but it can customize the bevel, including that of the lower base curve lens into that of a high-wrap frame. A 3-D Bevel Simulation Screen lets the operator check placement of the bevel on the Lex 1000 as if viewing the actual lens from any angle. Every aspect of the bevel profile can be customized, including tilting for a secure fit. Even the pliable edging block was redesigned with a higher curve for better adherence.

COME ON OVER TO PSI’S ECO-FRIENDLY PAD. Practical Systems, Inc. (PSI) has introduced the Maize HD Polish Pad for all lens materials. Maize HD gets its name from high-density fibers that keep the polish on the lens to allow for a reduced cycle time of five minutes. The environmentally friendly pad uses natural rubber, fewer dyes, and new manufacturing technologies that keep slurries cleaner and reduce polish carry out. Maize HD Polish Pads are available in seven- and 16-petal configurations in both low- and high-tack adhesives. For more information, contact Practical Systems, Inc.
