TechDay: Barberini still on the cutting edge
"Glass" for lens production, is living a second youth
Research on glass lens development for sun protection does not stop only at lens production but moves onwards and gains a further step ahead which, in the production cycle, comes first and is very important.
Barberini S.p.A. acquired the Schott AG Ophthalmic Division about two years ago. The optical glass melting system remained in its original site in Grünenplan, Germany. The company took the name of Barberini GmbH and produces glass for ophthalmic application, going from sun protection to optical precision tools.
The new Company Management immediately gave a marked development to Research optimizing the department with new researchers. Of course Barberini is known throughout the world for glass sun lenses therefore one of the main research points for the R&D department in GmbH is "Sun protection". The results did not hesitate to come but rather we can say that "glass" for lens production, is living a second youth!
A lot of new types of glass are now part of Barberini's offer for companies that use their lenses. Today we can offer glass lenses that filter UV up to 400 nm and over, the possibility to promote new colors without having to face important melts, a wide range of shades for photochromic lenses, new original colors and finally; as important studies on Rare Earths contained in glass have been made, also improved color perception (Color Enhancement) but obviously there's much more....
Apart from the development concerning this raw material, there are also technical researches regarding the production of the lenses, always more reliable and constant in quality standards.
To improve the awareness of all this, we have created an opportunity for our technicians and who takes care of our new product development inside Barberini with the companies who produce sunglasses.
March 11th 2012 our technicians: Mr Reinhard Kassner, Katia Engel and Alfonso De Luca will be at our booth Pav. 22 booth D01 to answer all questions and curiosities of those who have in mind to use glass lenses for sun protection or for ophthalmic use.
