Briot Evolution

The Next Evolution of Edging

With a dynamically adjustable lens drilling / grooving tool up to 30° and Briot’s Best-Fit® Technology, the Evolution ensures that the lens has an exceptional finish. The lens edger includes five different bevel options and 5 different grooving modes, allowing you unrivaled versatility. Edge lenses faster and more efficiently with less noise using the Alta Evolution.

Block with Confidence with Gravitech

The  intuitive parallax-free, camera-assisted blocking system has been simplified to 3 easy steps that helps eliminate human error during the blocking process, decreasing the dreaded “redo” and increasing your patient satisfaction.

Stay Ahead of the Curve

A brand new digital lens clock feature measures the front base-curve of the lens in a matter of seconds to ensure that the Evolution achieves a perfect finish.

Damaged Demo Lens? No Problem with Shape Creator 2.0

The Evolution can accurately reconstruct broken or defective demo lenses with minimal effort using the new Shape Creator 2.0 technology on the Evolution Blocker.

Brushless Technology for Faster, Quieter Operation

Edge lenses faster and more efficiently while also reducing noise with new brusheless motor technology featured on the Evolution. Now, you can plug this edger in anywhere that has a 120V line adding extra placement flexibility in your optical lab.

Provide the Best Finish on High Base-curve Frames with Briot’s Best-Fit Technology

No two frames are exactly alike, so it is important to have a drilling system that is flexible enough to tackle any challenge. With the dynamically adjustable drilling / grooving tool on the Evolution, you can be assured that your lenses will have an exceptional finish.
