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.

“We’ve always been an important partner to the large window manufacturers in Finland. Listening to their needs and responding has helped us stay competitive in this market,” Tommi Nousiainen, CEO of PLG in Finland, explains. “We were not specifically looking for a tempering furnace. But when our customers began to require high-quality tempered glass, we moved swiftly ahead with an entry-level Glaston RC model. Since then, we have already been able to upgrade the line twice in response to the rapidly evolving market.”
