The AutoBlocker is for use in laboratories that edge and mount lenses into frames.  
All kind of lenses can be oriented and blocked according to the ink marks or the µ-engravings.
Because the A&R  AutoBlocker is task specific, and the system has a small footprint, you can easily integrate it into the lab.
The AutoBlocker is an excellent investment for a modern lab with a  rapid payback!
