    Having Trouble with my Nidek LE-9000sx

    The problem that keeps occurring is lens slippage. Of course with AR's such as EX3 SHV and even ARC Hoya products. I do have the proper non-slip pads for these AR's however just about a week ago the lenses started to slip bad, anywhere from 10 to 15 deg. I have tried to clean the machine and re-grease it but the same problem is occurring. I have also adjusted the chuck pressures but the same problem continues. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    don't under estimate the wear and tear trivex does to your wheels also... might be time to replace them

    Was this a gradual off axis problem or did the 10-15 degrees appear all of sudden? I would verify 2 things. First make sure right side chuck is completely clamping against lens during processing. To test maybe run a hydro lens with 2 or even 3 blocking discs on backside. Second make sure right side clamp is rotating evening with left side. If there is any noticeable delay, this will cause excessive torque against block on lens.

    I was advised once, to let the lens block cure a bit on the lens. 5-10 minutes. Since we started doing that, no more slippage.

    Are these as awesome as people say? Maybe I need to try some. Unity Elite lenses have twisted on me 3 times. I blame this thread ;)
