edging trivex

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions on edging trivex? I tried using a poly setting and the lens melted a bit,so I tried a cr-39 setting, and the lens got caught up on the wheel. I'm guessing a cr-39 setting with lowered water flow? any suggestions will be helpful.

I've only edged it on a Optronics E6 so I really can't help you but I thought you were suppose to edge it like a poly I will make a couple of calls and see if anyone is using an edger that isn't dry cut and let you know what I find out

I changed my roughing wheel to a 50 grit wheel, it gets a much better bite than my old wheel. I run in poly mode on a Gamma edger.

Yes you can cut it on the CR-39 setting with low water and a light pressure setting :blush:

Most folks run it like poly. Now water, slow feed rate.

 

Here is a link to Younger Optical. They have a Trilogy (Trivex) edging and proccessing guide. It is at the bottom of the page.

 

Good luck!

when edging trivex use the poly setting, also, if you want the best performance change your wheels. when your edging trivex the material melts and with regular wheels doesn't have anywhere to go. call Dave @ inland diamond, and get yourself a set of axiom wheels, they work best for all materials.
