This new option is now offered and sold to customers since the Vitrum Show 2009. It is the latest master piece of engineering from Softsolution and can detect glass thickness as well as coating and coating side comfortably without touching the glass. If there is no connection to customers’ production software, the default coating side can be configured within the Line Scanner master files.
The Line Scanner software then finds the coating side and compares the result with the master file settings. If the coating is on the wrong side, the monitor software alerts the operators immediately by displaying an error message. If there is a full integration between customers’ production software and the Line Scanner software via transfer file, all production data like glass thickness, coating and coating side are compared to real production data. In case of any differences, the monitor software alerts the operators immediately by displaying an error message as well.
The LineScanner system combines at least all functions in one hardware system – surface quality control, precision control, glass thickness, coating, bar code reader and in the near future a data matrix code interpreter.
