In the first evaluation phase, together with the project manager Mr. Jakub Krakowski, those products of SOFTSOLUTION were specified, which will meet the high demands for quality assurance of PRESS GLASS.
VirtualDigitizing (linking), for example, is used for digital object capture of special shapes at various production sites. Templates and 2D objects are automatically and quickly converted into DXF files and forwarded to production.
The CulletScanner at PRESS GLASS (in Radomsko/Konobiska?) is used for automatic break pattern analysis of tempered glass. The evaluation according to EN12150 is a high priority for PRESS GLASS products. Included in that digital project file, there is a printable PDF certificate confirming the quality.
Several LineScanners in different heights and at various PRESS GLASS locations in Europe and the USA inspect single glasses for surface quality and logo position. The exact schedule from measurement, installation and training to the final acceptance was implemented by the support engineers of Softsolution on time and in a precise manner.
The Technology Development Manager @ PRESS GLASS, Mr. Jakub Krakowski, follows the production worldwide via the quality statistics of the LineScanner's management console running on a tablet or smartphone. If all scanners in the company deliver perfect quality, he can work on his further developments with peace of mind. In case of challenges or irregularities, he is alerted and can take quick action.
Mr. Jakub Krakowski comments:
"Surface quality scanners are becoming the standard in the production of insulating glass. The basic function of the scanner is to support the operator, where the intuitive software facilitates and improves the daily inspection of the glass. Appropriate software allows you to significantly improve production management and quality control, simultaneously on several lines. Such possibilities are offered by the management console offered by Softsolution."
After just a short learning period, PRESS GLASS ordered additional systems for quality assurance from Softsolution for 2022. A total of 11 LineScanners will be in use at various positions on the production lines at PRESS GLASS once the planned installations are completed.
PRESS GLASS focuses on gaining and maintaining a technological advantage over its competitors. The globally active organization continues to upgrade the product quality by implementing innovative components, production processes, and service systems. The Polish-based company knows that being reliable is crucial, especially in terms of quality and promptness of deliveries.
