The Santinelli ICE mini+ is wonderfully intelligent and makes manual blocking techniques with Santinelli edgers seem obsolete. Integration with Santinelli edgers is incredibly seamless and easy to install– and little learning curve exists for new operators. The 8.4-inch color LCD touch panel offers easy operation and best of all, the lens’s traced outlines and finished outlines are shown in actual size. The ICE mini+ also features a 3-pin oscillating lens stage with lens retaining clamp, which allows the operator to perfectly block the lens without any chance of lens movement, even with the most difficult slab-off lenses. The pin (hole) position information can then be converted into a digital data and it is editable with use of a stylus pen on the touch panel. The traced data obtained with the edger’s built-in tracer are automatically stored into the unit’s internal memory making blocking even easier with previously-traced frames. 

OUR TAKE: A very efficient upgrade for seamless integration with Santinelli systems.

Automated blocking when compared to manual blocking. 

*assuming average production times based on our own independent research and experiment. 

8.4 inch color LCD touch panel offers clear display and easy operation.

Traced outline and finished outline of the lens are simultaneously displayed in actual size, which is useful when determining if the external outline is sufficient for the traced outline. By super imposing the images, lens cut-out is easily determined.

The ICE mini+ can be directly connected to a lens edger as a minimum configuration. The traced data obtained with the built-in tracer of the Le / Lex series are automatically stored in the ICE mini+’s internal memory.

You can also connect several devices such as frame tracer and lab edgers on a local area network (LAN) for medium to mass production of finished lenses. Various system configurations are possible to meet each customer’s needs.


The flexible lens stage continuously applies upward stabilizing pressure, keeping the front base curve of a lens at the optimal horizontal position. The stabilizing pressure reduces a gap and prevents sliding by holding both side of the lens. Therefore, despite the manual operation, highly precise blocking is available.

Hole position information read by the camera can be easily formulated into digital data. The magnified data is editable by using the stylus pen on the touch panel. Hole position display is also editable in the same way. Registered hole information modification and additional holes can be set briefly. Each hole type is shown by an icon on the display for easy operation.

*Hole Edit Function is only available with the Lex 1000 series and the ME-1000 series. (Not available with the Le 1000 series.)


With a quick and easy operation on the touch panel, the Shape Editing Function can alter size of a lens shape to meet a wider variety of customer’s needs. It is also possible to set certain parts of the lens shape to remain unchanged for design purpose.


The camera display brightness can be changed among 4 levels. When marking dark coated lenses, use the adjust buttons to change the brightness to a visible level.


The ICE mini+ connects with the following known edgers:

  • LE9000
  • LE-7070SX
  • SE-9090
  • SE-9090EX
  • LT-900
  • ME-1000
