Cutting

If the glass has not been cooled uniformly across its width, it may have weaknesses that cause it to break when being cut. Measurements at the cutting stage provide a final opportunity to ensure that the glass is sufficiently cooled for safe and efficient cutting.

While the glass may break at the cutting station, failure to detect any internal stresses or visual distortions at this final stage may lead to substandard product being shipped. Accurate monitoring provides an added quality safeguard.

By detecting substandard product before it enters the cutting line, downtime to remove broken glass is reduced. A reliable, non-contact spot measurement allows the finished glass product to be monitored for consistent quality levels.
