QUALITY SCANNER 3D

The Quality Scanner automates your glass quality control and brings it to the highest standard. This efficient quality control machine is incorporated directly after glass washing and detects reliably all different types of glass defects – Making it ideal for a profitable glass production and processing.

The Quality Scanner reliably detects bubbles, scratches, fine streaks and hairline scratches, at the same time it ignores dust or smallest dirt contamination. The machine consists of up to three, independently operating detection channels. Each channel scans the glass from a different angle and under different light circumstances, while it is being transported at top speed through the Quality Scanner.

The modular and expandable device can be integrated into already existing production lines. The freely definable quality parameters allow you to make individual changes depending on your client’s quality standards. If necessary you can also supply your client with the control results of each pane, thanks to the documentation and included archiving system.

QUALITY CHECKER

The Quality Checker takes over the final inspection within your glass production and verifies optical glass quality and glass dimensions. At the same time, the machine documents all quality relevant results. This efficient final quality control can be integrated within the tempered glass production as well as at the end of the insulated glass production line. This allows you to further reduce your claim costs, secure your in time delivery and to be always prepared for the worst case scenario.

The individual adaptable Quality Checker is positioned at the end of your production line, directly behind an IG press or tempering furnace. Once installed it guarantees the glass quality you desire. The scanner measures glass width and height, as well as hole positions and diameters, or the exact position of the spacers and Georgian bars – no matter if you are working at normal standards or attempting to meet a higher quality.

The speed and illumination of the device adapts automatically to the speed of your production line. Thanks to the patented telecentric illumination, the various inspection tasks can be combined perfectly. And all without production time delay.

ECO SCANNER

Detecting glass defects with low investment.

The highly standardized ECO Scanner detects defects strong in contour and contrast like scratches, seeds and bubbles. This range of performance makes the ECO Scanner ideal for the control of e.g. grinded glass directly after having passed a washer. So it secures a good glass quality or the chance to scrap defected glass before adding more value to it.

Due to the mentioned high degree of standardization and a revolutionary working principle a price level has become achievable, which is far below the modular Quality Scanner series.

In dissected production structures a central control of of glasses is impossible. Due to the price level of the single devices it is possible to implement quite a few scanners with a total investment still allowing a quick payback.

ANISOTROPY SCANNER

When it comes to the visual quality of tempered and heat-treated glass, anisotropy is a top concern among producers and architects or end users. Anisotropies, also known as iridescence, present as dark circles, spots or stripes in the glass that are visible in polarized light, from certain angles or through polarized sunglasses. The visual effect is caused by different tensions in the glass, mostly resulting from the tempering process.

As option in addition to measuring anisotropies, the scanner can detect white haze on the glass, which can be caused by dust, rollers or other factors in the furnace. The haze detection allows operators to know exactly where they must rework the glass to ensure a clean surface before sending it to the next processing stage or the customer.

The Anisotropy Scanner is measuring with polarized light in transmission and is applicable for all tempered and heat strengthened float based glasses even with temperable standard coatings, for sizes up to 3.3 x 6m (optional up to 18m) and glass thicknesses up to 20 mm (optional more). The Anisotropy Scanner is measuring without causing a production delay up to a production speed of 25 m/min. Anisotropies were visualized as batch coming from the oven bed. Each single glass on the batch is measured and the correcponding anisotropy value is displayed and documented. So there is a proof that the minimal target value was achieved at each glass.
