CulletScanner - glass fragmentation test

Automatic fracture pattern analysis with optional polarization function

The CulletScanner from Softsolution scans every fragmentation image, whether architectural or automotive glass, with maximum resolution. Each fragment is viewed from a 90° angle and the entire glass fragmentation image of a test sheet is exactly and fully analysed within seconds.

CulletScanner is able to completely analyze the entire fragmentation image of a glass test sheet within seconds. Every fragment is identified and gauged. Exclusion areas along the outer edge as well as the impact point are of course included. Every scan of a glass fragmentation image is stored with maximum precision and definition. A printed certificate in PDF format is generated automatically showing all the analysis areas, additional information such as the relevant job, type of furnace etc. and of course an overall result.

  • Fully automated fragmentation image analyzis for different types of glass
  • Precise calculation of length, surface area and weight of every single fragment
  • Capture of the longest, largest and smallest fragments – many standards available
  • Edge stress and correlation to surface tension (approximation)
  • Anisotropy

automatic counting

CulletScanner – put your mind at ease with the use of innovative technology.

The CulletScanner analyzes the entire sheet and finds those areas with the most, fewest, largest and longest fragments fully automatically. These positions are highlighted and analyzed once more. The associated CulletScanner software provides all established,
familiar standards in this field. (EN 12150, EN 1683, EN 14179, EN 14428, EN 31129.NFF, R 43, ANSI Z97.1-2004, CAN/CGSB-12.1M)
The status, position, size, length, surface area and weight are determined for every single fragment. The CulletScanner counts consistently, dependably and plausibly.

Archive and certificate

Every scan of a glass fragmentation test will be digitally stored and archived in highest precision and definition. There is no need of storing blue prints or something like this.

Every single test will be stored for years and can be reopened at any time without any loss of quality.

A full automatic print of certificate in PDF format is included. It is showing every single area of analyse together with individual information and the overall result. Overall result means, if this example passes the requirements or not. Please have a look, contact us and be convinced about that technology of glass fragmentation analysing.
