In the world of medicine, it seems as though the most common prescription (at least in the United States of America) must be for corrective lenses. It doesn’t matter whether they’re the kind of lenses that set into frames, resting in front of the eyes or the kind of lenses that sit directly on the eyeballs, prescription lenses appear to be a critical element in the lives of the vast majority of us. An even larger percentage of the American population depend almost as heavily on non-prescription corrective lenses—you know, the kind you can pick of a rack at the pharmacy, marked with different levels of magnification…not just for grandparents, anymore.
Despite our obvious dependence on them, what most of us never take time to consider is the manufacturing process behind these wonders that make it possible for us to see that there are actually individual leaves on those trees along the road. The fact of the matter is, very few of us really and truly appreciate the research and development that have gone in to preparing all the different kinds of corrective lenses for us, not to mention our failing to consider the steps involved in just the manufacturing. For example, how many of us have ever thought about the custom wire baskets used to clean corrective lenses during and at the end of the manufacturing process? Although you may never have taken the time, you can be sure that Bausch & Lomb Company has thought about them, in great detail. So has Three M Tool (threemtool.com) , a company based in York, Pennsylvania. Three M Tool is a supplier of custom baskets and racks for the optical manufacturing industry, not only to Bausch & Lomb Company, but also to several others in the same field.
Three M Tool has many clients in the world of medicine and manufacturing, although Bausch & Lomb Company is probably one of the best known. Among Three M Tool’s many customers in the medical field are some on the pharmaceutical side (including customers involved in pharmaceutical research), as well as several others in orthopaedics. Consider—custom wire baskets are just as necessary for other cleaning processes. Medical implants have to be cleaned before they can be introduced as replacement parts, so the world of orthopaedics needs hip, knee, and shoulder implant cleaning racks. Where research teams are exploring the future of medicine and pharmaceuticals, they need tissue sample cleaning baskets and lab sample testing racks.
Every client in the field of medicine has its own, very specific needs, ranging from cleaning eyeglass lenses to preparing surgical implants. Three M Tool is dedicated to meeting each and every one of those needs, and their team of engineers, using cutting edge technology, will work with each customer to design the perfect custom wire basket for each unique application. With over fifty years of experience and a long track record of success, Three M Tool has the capabilities necessary to deliver what they promise, ensuring satisfied customers.
