Confirm Optical Quality and Save Production Time
Glass Measurement + Inspection
While glass measurement requirements vary greatly, one thing remains the same—Lumetrics' thickness gauges help reduce risk and save time using advanced optical metrology technologies.
The OptiGauge probe measures glass, PVB, and all other layers simultaneously with a continuous rate of 50 Hz so you can easily:
- Speed product development
- Confirm optical quality
- Troubleshoot lamination issues
- Calculate wedge angle, curvature, bow measurements, and other properties
For manufacturers who use hydrofluoric glass slimming operations, we’ve engineered a specially coated probe to insert into the chamber in an alignment system that keeps the probe perpendicular to the glass being treated. It’s less risky, and it can save up to 30% in production time, according to some customers.
Featured Products + Systems
- OptiGauge II
- OptiGauge EMS
The OptiGauge II is an ideal non-contact thickness measurement system for companies needing an accurate, non-contact system for single and multilayer thickness measurement. It is non-destructive and objective, leaving no margin for operator error. It is ideal for glass applications, such as windshields and other coated glass products, where traditional methods fail. OptiGauge II can be particularly useful in Quality, R&D labs, and production floors because it can improve yields, reduce costs, increase quality, and meet compliance requirements.
The OptiGauge EMS uses the same core hardware and software as the OptiGauge II but is tailored to applications that require a bit more measurement range than the standard OptiGauge. It’s ideal for float and architectural glass when you need a larger thickness measurement range. The OptiGauge EMS can be used on the hot or cold end of a float glass line to provide instantaneous measurement and feedback to the control system.
