Briot Evolution

The edging system that adapts your needs

Briot has developed the first optical tracing system capable of using just one reference point to recreate a flawless 3D shape in just 4 seconds. With our patented GraviTech® technology, users achieve perfect shape reproduction and sizing with results that are superior to mechanical tracers.

Patented technology delivers perfect, parallax-free blocking

A new technology that enables consistently faster blocking while eliminating negative influences such as parallax and light reflections to deliver perfect blocking results.

Digital lens clock

The new Digital Lens Clock feature measures the front base-curve of the lens in a matter of seconds. The Evolution then uses this data to achieve a perfect finish.

Intelligent shape smoothing

The Evolution can accurately reconstruct broken or defective demo lenses with minimal effort.

Flexibility and speed with new whisper quiet technology

Edge faster and more efficiently with less noise using the Evolution’s new Brushless motor technology and ditch the need for a 220v power line.

Best finishing results

No two frames are exactly alike. With a dynamically adjustable drilling / grooving tool up to 30° and Briot’s Best-Fit® Technology, the Evolution ensures that the lens has an exceptional finish.

The first fit is the right fit

90mm diameter wheels can perform bevels that larger wheels cannot. Achieve the best aesthetics with full bevel width and height control, especially in thin metal frames.
