The LineScanner developed by the Austrian company SOFTSOLUTION combines several quality tests in a single control unit. Glass manufacturers and glass refiners can now measure and document the homogeneity of the tension distribution across the entire glass surface. With the scan, the edge stress is also measured.

“Up to now, it has only been possible to determine the product quality of thermally pretensioned glass using destructive testing methods. In this process, a homogeneous distribution of the tension across the glass surface is of vital importance for the fracture pattern to be achieved and the flawless visual quality. This test is now possible without a destructive fracture – we are looking forward to presenting our LineScanner in Düsseldorf. This innovation enables not only the mechanical quality of single-pane safety glass and annealed glass to be tested in a non-destructive way, but also the optical quality (areas of tension – i.e. anisotropies) to be evaluated. We have a genuine innovation up our sleeve,” according to Thomas Schuller, Managing Director of SOFTSOLUTION.

With the SOFTSOLUTION LineScanner, it is now possible to test the quality of glass products – precisely, flexibly and non-destructively:

Testing the pretensioning quality

  • Anisotropy
  • Edge stress
  • Glass fragmentation analysis
  • Temperature pattern

Final dimensions control station

  • Guaranteed tolerance of +/- 0.25 mm
  • Overall dimension
  • Drill hole test
  • Sectional control

Testing the optical quality

  • Surface defects (scratches, coating errors, etc.)
  • Inclusions
  • Edge defects

Special tests

  • Logo control
  • DMC code
  • Frame
  • Overall bending
  • Glass thickness and coated side

“With our LineScanner, it is now a simple matter to produce quality”, states Schuller, adding: “Convince yourself of the results and visit us at glasstec in Düsseldorf!”
