Manual glass quality assessment is a thing of the past!

The unique parallel light technology enables the LineScanner to be operated with the same setup to inspect single sheets
as well as finished insulation elements both horizontally and vertically. An automatic glass defect inspection system that excels with maximum flexibility and extreme ease of use.

The LineScanner inspects flat glass products for optical defects like scratches, inclusions, edge chips, screen printing, bars as well as dimensional defects with regard to overall dimensions, drill hole diameter and position. Glass thickness, the coating side and element structure can be quickly and easily examined. Thanks to the use of specially developed glass encoders, the position and size of defects can be optimally displayed.

Technological advantages

  • Resolutions of up to 400dpi and 16bit technology enabling a highly accurate scan image of the inspected object
  • An inspectation with 90° of all areas of the respective object , leads to stable , repeatable results
  • The proven , high-speed and high-resolution technology is based on scanning modules and an optimized parallel light illumination with LED 's.
