Abstract: front page image
(EN) A tray assembly for holding small devices such as polymeric ophthalmic lenses includes a mesh insert (20) having a plurality of wells (32) for containing individual lenses. The assembly may also include a support tray having a perimeter substantially conforming in shape to the outer edge of the mesh insert. Contact is maintained between the support tray and the mesh insert to confine the lenses within the assembly. A stack assembly includes a plurality of multiwell circular mesh trays and corresponding mesh tray covers stacked and secured on a center shaft and provides substantially enhanced efficiency and productivity in processes such as extraction or hydration. Additionally, portions of the mesh insert and support tray may be used with such processes such as lens coating and surface treatment.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une claie servant à loger de petits articles tels que des lentilles ophtalmiques de polymère comportant un insert maillé présentant une série d'alvéoles recevant chacune une lentille. Le dispositif peut également comporter un support dont le périmètre correspond sensiblement à celui de l'insert maillé. La claie et l'insert sont maintenus en contact pour confiner les lentilles dans le dispositif. L'invention porte également sur un empilement de claies circulaires à plusieurs alvéoles et sur les couvercles correspondants, fixés à un arbre central et permettant une efficacité et une productivité sensiblement améliorées dans des processus tels que l'extraction et l'hydratation. De plus, certaines parties des inserts et des supports peuvent servir dans des processus tels que l'enduction ou le traitement de surface des lentilles.
