    Lens RPM on Generators

    I am doing some testing and evaluation of new generators. Is there any data available on the RPM of the lenses during the generating process? Looking for info on Schneider, Coburn, Satis, Optotech.

    When asking about RPM do you mean actual lens speed or cycle time?

    As a previous Coburn SL2 generator owner I would have to estimate lens RPM @ 2500. The RPM will vary based on material and curvature

    Use something like this to clock

    I was referring to the actual RPM of the rotating lens while being surfaced.
