Our products

Product category: Inspection systems, Float and mirror glass

Eagle I

Eagle-I is the industry leading cut plate inspection system for float glass, offering full conveyor coverage for mainline, side leg and offline applications. It allows for the automatic inspection and rejection of all bad glass to user-defined tolerances with minimal operator intervention.

 

Eagle-I+ extends functionality to a fully redundant configuration at optimal cost in a minimum of space.

Cut plate inspection tests include:

 

Dimensional verification of width
and length
Squareness errors
Plates skewed on the conveyor
Broken or missing plates
Snap fails
Corner and edge defects
Shells and flares detection on both
top and bottom surfaces
Fault marks
Benefits:

 

Improved operational efficiency
Faster tracing of defects
Reduced wastage
Yield maximisation
Detailed statistical information
Ease of installation
Low maintenance
Stand-alone or redundant configurations

AG inspection system

MIRRORED GLASS INSPECTION
AG provides full cut plate inspection capabilities as per the Eagle-I system, but is optimised to also allow for pinhole detection in mirrored glass. Defects may be detected in the silver layer both paint layers.

Mirrored glass inspection tests include:

 

Verify glass integrity
Pinhole detection in the silver layer
before any base coats are applied
Paint defect detection in either 
paint layer
Benefits:

 

Allows coating problems to be detected at the earliest possible stage
Improved operational efficiency
Reduced wastage
Yield maximisation

IQ powder measurement online

IQ provides a consistent, reliable, and safe means of measuring interleavant powder coverage at a frequent interval, offering measurements of:

 Number of particles of each type (beads or acid)
Area coverage by particle type
Total mass of powder by particle type
Density of powder by particle type
 

The system is available in a range of configurations using either trundling or static cameras to provide full conveyor coverage or point readings. The modular design and tight hardware/software integration employed within the IQ system ensures that the required functionality for interleavant powder coverage measurement is delivered at an optimal cost.

 

IQ offers the following features:

 Detailed visual data with real-time measurement display
Data and statistics across time ranges
Full integration with plant control equipment and plant networks
Feedback to plant to allow closed loop control of powder applicators

About us

Company details

Inspection Systems has worked in float glass inspection since the late 1980s and the Eagle-I system was one of the first cut plate glass inspection systems brought to market. We now have over 80 automated vision systems across 6 continents, serving clients such as the Pilkington NSG Group, Guardian Industries Corp, Cardinal FG, AGC North America and the PFG Group.

 

Our equipment is integrated to plant from companies such as Grenzebach, Bottero, Bystronic and the ICAP Group and offers functionality ranging from the measurement of powder particles to jumbo plates and from the automatic rejection of bad glass to robot stacking of good glass.
