FLOAT GLASS ANALYSIS
Autaza Glass was developed to perform the automatic quantitative and objective inspection of glass quality, ensuring fast and reliable product approval. It is capable of identifying defects in the production line or the inspection room.
Suitable for inline inspection or try-out
How it works
Refractive distortions can be seen when the glass is between the viewer and the viewed object. For example, a car’s windshield is glass that cannot have refractive distortion as it can affect what the driver is seeing. The system delivers the degree that the refractive distortion will appear to the observer. In the images, you can see how a distortion behaves at different angles.
Reflection distortion can be seen when the viewer sees the viewed object reflected in the glass. It is expected the reflection be very similar to reality. But depending on the process you can find distortions in the glass. The Autaza Glass system uses a black and white stripe to reflect and highlight this distortion. The quality criteria are based on some distortion measurements.
In-line Inspection or Try-out
The Refraction and Reflection Analysis can be made in the same inspection room as try-out mode. It is installed cameras, glass holders, lighting, and computers for both inspections. The systems work in the same software and just need the operator positioned the glass and play the software to start one automatic inspection. Solid inclusion inspection, on the other hand, must be performed in-line, so it can inspect 100% of the glass. It can even be used to optimize the cutting of the glass later.
