Flat glass inline

The thickness of glass ribbons can be measured using multiple probes or by traversing.

Measurement data and key figures are available for a higher-level process control.

Flat glass offline

With offline measurement, not only can the thickness of glass or plastics sheets be measured but also warpage and edge geometries.

Non-transparent foils

Two opposing probes are used to measure the thickness of opaque materials by measuring the distance to the top and bottom of the object.
The following materials, for example, are suitable for measurement: metals, plastics, dark tinted glasses and sheets with rough surfaces on both sides.
The distance between the two probes is measured at fixed time intervals for calibration. The measuring bridges can be used in a stationary position or mounted on a linear axis.

Measurement at the hot end

Specially-developed cooled housings permit measurement at glass temperatures of above 1,000°C, i.e. before they pass through a lehr, which drastically reduces the time needed to set the correct glass thickness.
