Push beyond the haze


The new White Haze Scanner by Glaston and Softsolution is the first AI-based online solution that gives you a high-quality visual indication of where the white haze is on the processed glass. The detection algorithm was developed in Finland in collaboration with the global glass industry.

The neural network developed detects white haze in processed glasses and objectively categorizes the haze marks by strength into three intensity levels. By instantly notifying you about the issue, the solution allows you to react immediately, define your own quality standards and contribute toward a unified glass industry haze standard.
