Split Job Curing Cycle

Some prescriptions will use different initialization cycles for each eye. The Q-2100 screen will show the word SPLIT when this occurs.

 

 

Split jobs require a few extra steps to complete them correctly. Fill both mold assemblies as usual and put them in the initial curing drawer with the fill port up. Press the CURE button once and the box just above the button will direct you to check for correct filter placement. Check the filters and continue when they are correctly placed.

 

Press the CURE  button a second time and the box will direct you to start curing the left or right assembly. The alert tone will sound when the first assembly has finished the initialization step.  Remove it and place it in the post cure station and press the POST CURE button. Place the second mold cavity in the initialization drawer of the main chamber on the proper side and press CURE to start the initialization cycle for the second assembly.

The tone will sound again when the second mold assembly is ready to be moved to the post cure station. Move the mold assembly from the main chamber to the empty post cure location in the post cure drawer. Press the POST CURE button again to stop the alert tone and continue the post cure cycle for the two cavities. The two assemblies will finish their curing cycles together. The tone will sound again when the post cure cycle is complete.

Demolding and annealing for split jobs are the same as any other job.

Keep Your Q-2100 Looking Like New!

Don’t forget to regularly clean your Q-2100 Digital Lens System. The production process involves varying materials that produce small amounts of debris with each job processed. Buildup and leftover residue can cause your unit to perform below its optimal levels. Keep your system looking  and running like new with the following daily & weekly tasks.

Daily Maintenance

  • Keep production area and machines clean wiping up any spills
  • Remove and clean out excess fluid from the spin bowls and blot dry
  • Clean excess coating build up from the spin stages
  • Wipe down the drawers in the main chamber and post cure chamber
  • Visually inspect the filter plates for any residue and wipe clean with Kaydrys and Q-Spray if necessary
  • Ensure that all molds are cleaned and returned to the mold storage cabinet and never leave molds to soak overnight
  • Top off all cleaning solutions and monomer as needed

Weekly Maintenance

  • Remove the Q-2100’s front panels and visually inspect the air filters. Clean the filters with tap water and a mild soap if necessary. Blot dry and allow to dry overnight before returning to the panel
  • With the oven at room temperature, clean the glass plate in the top of the oven box (DO NOT attempt to clean the glass while the oven is hot). Use Q-Spray and a clean, nonabrasive cloth to clean. Reinstall the front panels
  • Change Q-Soak solutions at least once per week unless required more frequently due to volume or contamination
  • Remove spin bowls to soak overnight in a separate tub or bucket and then scrub with a scrub pad and rinse with hot water. Due to volume or debris build up this process may be required more frequently than once per week.
  • Change scrub pads as needed
