3D technology has always been one of the best-selling points for cinemas around the world, but the glasses used for it were always problematic – in order for the whole experience to be worth anything, they have to be in pristine condition. While it’s easy to clean your 3D glasses at home and take proper care of them, in cinemas the amount of glasses and users needing them at every screening, it’s almost impossible to do everything by hand. Kooptech-cinemas have finally found the solution, delivering a machine that today is considered one of the best on the market. Mashines that are used for washing and drying 3D glasses must be safe and reliable – how do they work and why are they a good investment?
3D glasses are getting stained over and over again
If cinemas were to buy a new pair of 3D glasses for every screening they have, they would go bankrupt in a matter of days, maybe months if they were lucky. Although the passive glasses used in cinemas are not that expensive, it is still not worth throwing them away if they are perfectly good. The only thing they need is a thorough and safe clean-up and sanitization, so that they are free of all the popcorn and soda stains that people leave on the lenses when they put the glasses on. Doing it manually would be highly ineffective and costly, as you need special products to wash them. How about making a machine, that could do 600 pairs an hour and provide perfectly clean, streak-free glasses that are ready to use before the next screening starts?
Kooptech washer-dryer for 3D glasses – how does it work and how much is it?
The company which designed the 3D glasses washer-dryer system believes that the process shouldn’t be difficult or costly at all. Apart from the initial investment (which is estimated around 15,000 $), the system is pretty cost-effective, utilising low temperature water alongside dedicated washing liquids and water softeners to make the process as safe as possible. The glasses that are put inside the machine are securely placed in specially designed baskets with covers, preventing any movements that could damage the glasses. The water temperature is low, so it doesn’t damage the lenses, but high enough to provide proper sterilization for the glasses. The drying process was designed to eliminate any watermarks and streaks on the surface of the lens, preventing image distortion and ensuring, that every screening is equally pleasant to each and every viewer.
