2 Patents Polarized Lens Formed by Injection/Coining Injection Molding Process Patent dateIssued May 13, 2004 Patent issuer and numberus WO2004/040341a1 Patent descriptionA polarized lens formed by an injection/coining injection molding process is disclosed. The polarized lens includes a polarizedinsert formed from a polarized sandwiched between two layers of celluulose material. The polarized insertr is surrounded by high-impacted polymer formed by a two step injection/coining process of injection molding that result in minimal stress in the lens. Stress-relieved acrylic optical lenses and methods of manufacture by injection coining molding Abstract Patent dateIssued Nov 30, 2000 Patent issuer and numberus WO 00/71331A1 Patent descriptionStress-relieved molded acrylic ophthalmic lenses and injection-coining mold processes for molding plus and minus to high-minus diopter ophthalmic lenses of optically superior acrylic resin, able to pass standardized drop tests for lenses are described. The injection-coining processes use two-plate and three-plate mold assemblies. The cavity of a two-plate runnerless mold is partially filled under partial tonnage, and the movable half of the mold controlled to coin and densify the acrylic resin under secondary or full tonnage, with excess material flowing to an overflow tab which acts to localize and eliminate weld lines. In the three-plate mold assembly, the lens mold cavities are partially filled under less than total clamp tonnage, with a cavity plate held by hydraulic pressure against a movable half ) of the mold. The mold assembly is then closed under full tonnage, collapsing the cavity plate between the movable core half and a stationary platen assembly, bringing the mold assembly to a total stack height. The processes produce impact resistant acrylic lenses which are stress-relieved and without weld lines, even in the high minus diopter range, with center thicknesses as low as one millimiter and edge thicknesses up to ten millimeters.
