AGR Introduces Optical Thickness Inspection System

October 9, 2000
AGR International, Inc. has added the Optical Thickness Inspection System, OPTIS™, to its family of glass container thickness inspection products. The OPTIS is a non-contact thickness measurement system designed to work in conjunction with existing rotary inspection stations. Designed for use in glass container manufacturing facilities, the OPTIS reportedly measures the wall thickness of glass containers and provides information critical to the glass container manufacturing process. According to the company, the system's proprietary non-contact, optical measuring technique incorporates high-intensity light beams to measure the thickness of the container. Wall thickness up to 0.20 in. (5 mm) can easily be measured in up to four locations over the body of a container, the company reports.
