SCA – Integrated Infrared Scanner

Measuring the outgoing glass temperature distribution


Three reasons for choosing Integrated Scanner (SCA)

1.

Improved glass quality and yield

2.

Highly-detailed production and quality monitoring

3.

Instant feedback enables fast corrections to the process

High quality with a wide range of specialty glass


The role of measuring is increasingly important as new glass applications (e.g. safety glass or solar panels) appear. While glass is becoming a more visible part of our environment, quality issues grow in importance.

The Integrated Scanner (SCA) represents a simple and reliable way to improve process quality and yield. It measures and visualizes temperature distribution on batch at the exit of the furnace.

#Flat tempering #RC Series

“We’re the new kids on the block with our latest offering of digital ceramic printing on glass, bringing affordability to one-off glass pieces that can be tempered into a long-lasting masterpiece. It was all by chance that we met Dip-Tech at Glasstec in Dusseldorf in 2016. After 18 months, we’ve brought our business idea to fruition,” says Charlie Hill, owner of Washington Art Glass in Tyne and Wear, UK. “The key to our success has been an investment in Glaston’s RC Series tempering furnace for top-quality, flat glass results.”
