Jumbo Controller

Recognize glass defects right from start
The Jumbo Controller allows for the optimization of glass processing from the start of the value chain. The device is positioned in the cutting area, and identifies defects in unwashed glass. Already cut glass with defects can be taken out of production, before it is processed any further, or with the help of a reoptimization of the cutting plan waste areas or possibly small glasses can be positioned on the defects.

Machine summary:
The Jumbo Controller detects glass defects such as, bubbles, inclusions, dirt, coating errors or broken glass without prior washing. At the same time it checks whether the delivered jumbo is rectangular. Thanks to the innovative filter and classification algorithms, Lucite or other separation powder on the glass will be ignored.

Your Benefits:
✓Less reject at the end of production
✓Avoid time and cost intensive refining stages on defective glass
✓Improve the manufacturing process
✓Increased cycle time for Insulated glass, tempered glass and laminated glass processing
✓Optimize delivery consistency
✓Evaluation of your glass suppliers
✓Save glass through the re-optimization of the cutting plan

Inspection tasks of the Jumbo Controller
•Standard glass defects: bubbles, scratches, inclusions etc.
•Laminated glass defects: dirt, inclusions, bubbles etc. within the lamination
•Optional coating defects: pinholes, flakes, debris etc.
•Recognition of defect marks from float
•Detection of glass breakage
•Control of rectangularity
•Further features upon request

Integration into the cutting process
The Jumbo Controller can be integrated into all kinds of cutting lines. The machine does not require any additional work stages and is designed to ensure a high production speed. The Jumbo Controller can work either stand-alone by making the defects visible on the current cutting plan or it can work in collaboration with the cutting re-optimization software.

In combination with this intelligent cutting re-optimization, such as the DefectOptimizers by the company A+W, glass can be saved through the re-optimization of the cutting data. In this way, you can avoid losing large amounts of glass and ensure that the workflows are not interfered.

Quality Scanner 3D

For highest expectations in glass quality
The Quality Scanner automates your of glass quality control and brings it to the highest standard. This efficient quality control machine is incorporated directly after glass washing and detects reliably all different types of glass defects – Making it ideal for a profitable glass production and processing.

Machine summary:
The Quality Scanner reliably detects bubbles, scratches, fine streaks and hairline scratches, at the same time it ignores dust or smallest dirt contamination. The machine consists of up to three, independently operating detection channels. Each channel scans the glass from a different angle and under different light circumstances, while it is being transported at top speed through the Quality Scanner.

The modular and expandable device can be integrated into already existing production lines. The freely definable quality parameters allow you to make individual changes depending on your client’s quality standards. If necessary you can also supply your client with the control results of each pane, thanks to the documentation and included archiving system.

Your benefits:
✓Reduced complaints and recalls
✓Establish your own level of quality
✓Automatization of manual controls
✓Glass quality independent of employee motivation and shifts
✓Decreased cycle time in glass production
✓Documentation and archiving of the control results
✓Statistical quality analysis
✓Improved overall quality within the production
✓Save glass through reworking
✓Amortization after only app. 1.5 years

Detection performance of the Quality Scanner
•Bubbles, stains, tin, foil inclusions, scratches
•Stains, finger and cork marks
•Dirt, washing residues
•Hairline scratches, smear and haze
•Coating scratches, coating abrasion
•Pinholes, flakes, debris
•etc

Quality Checker

Precise inspection of glass quality and dimensions
The Quality Checker takes over the final inspection within your glass production and verifies optical glass quality and glass dimensions. At the same time, the machine documents all quality relevant results. This efficient final quality control can be integrated within the tempered glass production as well as at the end of the insulated glass production line. This allows you to further reduce your claim costs, secure your in time delivery and to be always prepared for the worst case scenario.

Machine summary:
The individual adaptable Quality Checker is positioned at the end of your production line, directly behind an IG press or tempering furnace. Once installed it guarantees the glass quality you desire. The scanner measures glass width and height, as well as hole positions and diameters, or the exact position of the spacers and Georgian bars – no matter if you are working at normal standards or attempting to meet a higher quality.

The speed and illumination of the device adapts automatically to the speed of your production line. Thanks to the patented telecentric illumination, the various inspection tasks can be combined perfectly. And all without production time delay.

Your benefits:
✓Reduced complaint ratios
✓Ensure the required delivery quality
✓Decreased cycle time in glass production
✓Establish your own level of quality
✓Documentation of all quality relevant results
✓Statistical quality analysis
✓Improved overall quality within production
✓Quick pay back

Defect Pointer

Locate glass defects quickly and precisely
With the integration of the Defect Pointer into the Quality Scanner or into the Quality Checker, you automatically increase the productivity and quality of your glass manufacturing. Furthermore, through the exact, visual localization of the defects, it is practically impossible for your employees to overlook the defect, as the LED-based Defect-positioning indicator is integrated directly into the inspection area.

Machine summary:
The Defect-positioning indicator of the Defect Pointer consists of two long LED strips: The horizontally and vertically arranged, colorful LEDs shine directly onto where the defect can be found. The time consuming and risky search for the exact position of a glass defect is no longer necessary.

Your benefits:
✓Locate glass defects quickly and precisely
✓Visualization of the defect on the glass
✓Ideal to improve efficiency
✓A NECESSITY for large glass panes

The Defect Pointer in detail
•Exact display of the defect’s positioning, as found by the Quality Scanner or Quality Checker, onto the glass using LEDs
•Integration outside of the direct work space
•LEDs can be dimmed in order to avoid blinding
•No shadows, as the Defect Pointer is integrated directly beside the glass

Software
•Examination and measuring of rectangular and shaped panes
• Inspection computer accurately controls each LED
•Easy control over the LEDs using the touch display
•Precise display of the defect’s position onto the glass using all of the LEDs

Coating Sensor

Inspecting glass for coating on outer surface
The Coating Sensor detects in direct passing whether there is a coating on the outside of an insulated glass and hereby prevents complaints. The sensor can also be used for single panes to correct wrongly positioned glass in time.

Machine summary:
The in-line working sensor inspects both sides of the glass and operates on its own, independently of the Quality Scanner or the Quality Checker. If the Coating Sensor detects Low-E or sun-protection layers, a light signal is given or by request a 24-Volt alarm is produced. The mentioned glass can be removed from the line.

THE BENEFITS FOR YOU:
✓Avoid complaints based on outer coatingsGuarantee the required quality upon delivery
✓Improved cycle time in the glass production
✓Smooth integration
✓Quick amortization

THE SENSOR SYSTEM IN DETAIL
•Reliable testing for metallic coatings such as Low-E or sun-protection layers on the outside of the glass
•Visual alarm system, or audible alarm upon request
•Integration possible along various stages of the production lines
•Can be installed independently of a scanner system

INTEGRATION IN DIE LINIE:
The sensor system is suitable for horizontal or vertical production lines, for example after the press, after the sealing robot or at any other stage. The glass testing occurs completely automatic. A stop of the production line or the monitoring by an employee is not necessary. You can decide if the alarm system should tone continuously or in short bursts and if it has to be acknowledged or if it should turn off when the next piece of glass arrives.

The sensor can also consist of a one sided coating sensor upon request, which detects if a coating is present on the side that, for example is facing the wall of the conveyor.
