For the use of the LineScanner on a tempering furnace – which is now also able to check anisotropy and edge stress in addition to geometry, surface quality, edge quality and also DMC codes - we have created a real masterpiece in regards to a visual, non-destructive tempering quality check.

In order to avoid iridescence such as rainbow polarization spots, tapes or rings in the glass, the LineScanner can test internal stress zones which lead to a birefringence of the light easily and quickly.

Our brand new video ...

Demands on glass are getting more complex by the day. We at Glass IQ don't just want to keep up with the trends, we want to be a step ahead.  

LineScanner is already being used all over the world, setting new benchmarks in the glass industry. More details on that coming up. 

Brand new innovations for glass inspection

Dimensional control of glass

Available as an option to the LineScanner, the EDM system is able to give you exact dimension information of your piece of glass. Accuracy +/- 0,25 mm independent of the glass length. No other system within the glass industry  allows to check the dimensions of a glass with such an accuracy. 

Check for the overall bending

Brand new development for the LineScanner. Quality check for the overall bending of a piece of glass! Available for vertical installations. It checks the bending on a specific (adjustable) height of the glass. 

Automotive glass - quality check

Within 4 seconds, the LineScanner is able to check an automotive glass completely according quality, dimension or logos. The LineScanner is able to detect quality related defects on screen printed glass.


Flexibility and simplicity are principles of the LineScanner. We use the same concept for vertical as well as for horizontal installation. Details


Our CulletScanner scans every fragmentation image with highest resolution. Independent if it is automotive- or architectural glass. Details


VirtualDigitizing - our software for flexible digitizing solutions for templates , without a digitizing table. Details
