Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19804489A1] The present invention relates to an apparatus for machining glass lenses, wherein said apparatus comprises the following members: a housing (1); a machining chamber located in said housing; a shaft for maintaining a glass lens (5, 6) and a machining device (3) both arranged in the machining chamber; a cover (11) for outwardly closing the machining chamber; a support (17) for transporting a non-machined lens (9) towards the shaft for maintaining the glass lens when the cover is shut; a detector (10) for measuring the position of the non-machined lens as well as its angular position on the support, said detector being located in the area between the cover (11) and the shaft for maintaining the glass lens (5, 6); and a control device in the form of a computer. When grinding the glass lens using the machining device, the control device uses the data provided by the detector about the situation and the angular position of the non-machined lens in the shaft for maintaining the glass lens.
