The QM-X3’s robust design, combined with its ability to process complex shapes puts easy functionality and industrial-grade capabilities within reach. And, it’s backed by the industry’s most reliable service and support team.

QM-X3 Edger

Industrial Design

Robust industrial design provides maximum uptime in all environments ‒ including high volume in-store labs and central labs.

Heavy duty features include:

  • Direct drive motors for precision and robustness
  • Advanced digital signal processing for less electrical noise and faster processing speeds
  • High speed, high torque spindle capable of over  20,000 RPM
  • Sturdy sheet metal housing


Efficient mechanical design and high speed motors that rapidly drive components to position.

Exceptional Cosmetics

High luster polish for all organic materials and beautiful, clean grooves on any lens shape, even on sharp cornered or small eyed lenses.

Green Operation

Environmentally friendly dry edging saves water and makes lens debris clean-up easy.

Innovative Tooling

A fixed dual diamond blade design eliminates the need to frequently change blades and improves productivity and lens edge quality.

Remote Diagnostics

An easy-to-use remote diagnostics system provides fastest response times for immediate technical support and current software updates.

The inaugural product of National Optronics’ new QM (Quality Manufacturing) series, QM-X3 bridges the gap between industrial 5-axis edgers and 3-axis tabletops. It is a perfect fit for both in-store and central labs, with an ideal price point and compact size. Much more robust than typical tabletops and capable of easily processing complex shapes, the QM-X3 is a breakthrough in all aspects of edging: quality, flexibility and reliability.
