StrainScope Annealing Tester

Real-time polarimeter for fast and precise measurement of annealing stresses in container glass and tableware

Even in modern glass factories, residual stresses after the cooling process are still visually monitored with simple strain testers. The results are inaccurate, vary from user to user and are often under-documented.
The StrainScope® Annealing Tester delivers objective and accurate measurement results in a minimum of time - in all standard measuring units and compatible with established rating systems, such as apparent and real temper number according to ASTM C148. This allows you to specifically optimize production processes. Not only consistently high product quality is achieved, you can also minimize the energy consumption in the cooling process for each item.

The convenient archive function ensures that all measurement results are completely documented. In case of later complaint the proof of quality is provided quickly and beyond doubt.

Features and Benefits

  • Fast and easy operation
  • Prompt results displayed directly in the desired measuring unit
  • Consistently high product quality through testing close to production
  • Cost reduction by optimizing the energy use in the annealing process
  • Avoidance of customer complaints
  • Complete traceability through automatic result documentation

StrainScope Cord Tester

Real-time polarimeter for fast and precise measurement of cord stresses in container glass

The fracture of glass is strongly determined by internal mechanical stresses. An inhomogeneous glass composition leads to so-called cord stresses, which remain undetected with conventional polariscopes or polarimeters. The manual measurement by means of a polarizing microscope is very time-consuming and requires specially trained and experienced operating personnel.
The StrainScope® Cord Tester automates the stress measurement in ring sections of container glass and shows the distribution of compressive and tensile stresses in real time - directly in the desired measuring unit.

This allows you to perform the quality inspection close to production and with little training. You can respond quickly to production problems and avoid production losses and expensive complaints.

Features and Benefits

  • Fast and easy operation
  • Prompt results displayed directly in MPa or PSI
  • Consistently high product quality through testing close to production
  • Cost reduction by avoidance of customer complaints
  • Complete traceability through automatic result documentation

StrainScope Flex

Versatile real-time polarimeter for fast and precise measurement of residual stresses in glass and plastics

The StrainScope® Flex is the ideal solution for varying measuring tasks or the realization of special solutions, e.g. in development and process automation.
The design is compact and modular. All important components such as camera, lens and optical filters are directly accessible. Changing the lens or adjusting the working distance is done quickly and without tools.

The StrainScope® Flex can be used with both linearly and circularly polarized lighting. In addition, the camera and the compact light source unit can be separated, e.g. for easier integration into existing processes.

Features and Benefits

  • Fast and easy operation
  • Objective, reproducible and precise measurement results
  • Maximum flexibility for research, development and process automation 
  • Fully compatible with proven StrainScope® software
  • Powerful SDK (Software Development Kit) for seamless integration of the StrainCam® into your own applications

Chroma

Powerful software package for optical spectrum analysis and color measurement

Color can be of decisive significance for the commercial success of a product. Especially when using natural or recycled raw materials with fluctuating chemical composition, the continous and objective control of the color effect is an essential precondition for an unchanging quality.

Using the Chroma software package and a PC-controlled spectrophotometer, spectral characteristics of solids and fluids can be accurately determined and color values can be calculated and displayed.

Your Benefits

  • Optimization of quality by stabilization of the color
  • Modern and convenient user interface
  • Easy data management through integrated database
  • Direct control of many spectrometer types

BatchMaker

Software for the calculation and optimization of glass batches and glass properties

In view of constantly rising raw material and energy prices, batch calculation has great economic importance for the production of glass. This applies especially for the production of mass-produced products such as bottles or float glass. With BatchMaker®, a standard solution for easy and reliable calculation of batch recipes and glass properties is available for the glass industry.

Your Benefits

  • Fast and easy calculation of batch recipes
  • Reliable prediction of important glass properties
  • Quality improvement by stabilization of the glass chemistry
  • Minimization of batch energy costs
  • Modern and convenient user interface
  • Easy data exchange with laboratory and batch plant
