Raven™ 12 with Integrated Controller

The Integrated Controller (IC) is an option to accompany the Raven sensor.  The IC allows the user to establish alarm conditions for glass presented in the improper orientation.  For example, soft coat lowE with the coating down or rear on the rollers may be alarmed.

Raven will discriminate the following products: 

- Clear (not coated)
- Single silver lowE
- Double silver lowE
- Triple silver lowE
- 4th surface lowE (ex i89 or IS15)

Controller includes: 

- Processor
- LCD screen with software to set alarms
- 24 VDC power supply
- Power distribution
- Audible and visual (red light) alarms

Osprey®7 Distortion + Flatness Inspection System for Glass and Plastic

The Osprey 7 is the world leading on-line measurement system for tempered glass, and is the only measurement system in the world capable of meeting the requirements of PPG Certified Fabricators, Guardian Select Fabricators, and suppliers to USA government contracts. First developed in 1999, over 190 Osprey systems operate in tempering plants on 5 continents.  Osprey 6 was launched in 2014 and provides state-of-the-art technology in optical distortion measurement in heat-treated glass and plastic.

The Osprey 6 provides true optical measurement in lens power (diopters) as seen by the customer!  The Osprey 6 measures all types of optical distortion including roll wave, edge kink, local bow, pocket, side kink, hammer, bird’s eye, picture framing, belly banding, edge lift and all other types of distortion. Utilizing patented optics, high-speed cameras and powerful algorithms, Osprey 6 by LiteSentry™ is the industry standard.

Owl™2 Mass Measurement & Closed-Loop Tempering Furnace Control for Batch Tempering Lines

Owl™2 is the all new design of LiteSentry’s successful Owl™ Mass Measurement System, first installed in 2002. The Owl 2 is a non-contact optical system measuring the thickness, type of coating and area of the glass as it approaches the furnace. Information is transmitted to the furnace control system and the furnace automatically selects a recipe and optimizes the heat profile to (1) optimize cycle time and (2) minimize distortion and roll wave.  Productivity and quality proven to increase over 20%!


- Increase Throughput
- Temper Flatter Glass
- Eliminate Human Error
- Improve Productivity
