Glass is being used in more applications than ever, including fields such as architecture and various other technical areas. It is becoming increasingly important to adhere to the highest-possible quality requirements in glass plate production. What is needed is the most accurate inspection of glass surfaces, because the quality of the glass plate not only impacts the product’s visual appearance, but also plays a significant role in terms of the material’s functional and safety-relevant characteristics.
Even after further processing or after the glass plates have been installed, defects or inclusions in the material that are not visible with the human eye may be the cause of damage and functional limitations brought about by external impacts. This is why continuous, automatic, 100% quality inspections are crucial during the manufacturing process.
