MIDA: Multiple Image Defect Analysis for Advanced Defect Detection

Dr. Schenk’s GlassInspect solution offers superior detection capabilities so that bubbles, inclusions, tin defects, stones, knot lines or reams do not go unnoticed. Inspecting the float glass/ribbon prior to cutting and other process steps saves time, money and resources, as glass that does not meet the defined quality requirements can be excluded from further processing.

As a float glass manufacturer you have high quality standards regarding the precision of defect measurements and their severity categorization. Dr. Schenk´s cutting-edge illumination technology is the basis for MIDA, Multi Image Defect Analysis. How does MIDA work? Multiple images of one defect are gathered in a single scan pass. The combination of this defect information delivers complete information regarding the core size and distortion size of a detected defect. This was a key requirement and thoroughly tested for different suppliers’ solutions during a recent evaluation for float glass for automotive applications. Dr. Schenk’s GlassInspect convinced in all key points.

More information regarding MIDA for advanced defect detection, analysis and classification can be obtained during the Glass Performance Days in Mumbai, India, Beijing, China and Tampere, Finland, where Dr. Schenk will be giving talks on the subject. Stay tuned for the Dr. Schenk workshop in Tampere, Finland just prior to the GPD conference this year!
