    Multiple pieces can
    be cleaned at the
    same time

  • Safety and security

    No organic solvent
    is used

  • Powerful cleaning

    Stubborn stains can
    be also removed

  • No damage

    Delicate molds
    can be cleaned

Recovery of the transmissibility and brightness


Molds for optical components are so vulnerable that the cleaning of them by hand is extremely difficult and also involves differences in performance between individuals.

As with the CLIPIKA ACE, the CLIPIKA ACE OPT can be operated by anyone easily and can clean even delicate nickel-plated molds without causing any damage.

Of course, it uses no organic solvents and is therefore safe for human health.

Introduction of CLIPIKA ACE OPT

The CLIPIKA ACE OPT can clean the delicate molds without damaging them.

Risks of organic solvents

Organic solvents in mold cleaning sprays are harmful to the health.


Cleaning Example

Differences between the CLIPIKA ACE OPT and ultrasonic cleaning


Unlike cleaning machines using ultrasonic waves only, the CLIPIKA ACE OPT can return molds to the same steel color as new with the synergy of electrolysis, ultrasonic waves and cleaning solutions specified for the machine.

Comparison of damage to molds by cleaning nickel electroformed stampers


When cleaning precision molds for lenses or lightguide plates, it is important not only to remove stains but also not to damage the molds.
When a mold with precision patterns or a super mirror finish mold is cleaned with ultrasonic waves only, the ultrasonic shock may cause damage to the mold surface.
The CLIPIKA ACE OPT completely removes stains without causing damage to molds.

It is necessary to disassemble molds by parts.

What is the difference between the CLIPIKA ACE and the CLIPIKA ACE OPT?

While the CLIPIKA ACE cleans ordinary iron and steel molds, the CLIPIKA ACE OPT is designed to specifically clean delicate molds for lenses, chemical solutions and other optical components. The latter is also applicable to common nickel-plated molds. The CLIPIKA ACE OPT is creative in its cleaning solution with optimum composition, electrode materials, and the ultrasonic exposure method.
