Our products

Product category: Measurement and control of glass thickness


You can use our modular TC system (Tube Control) to measure, sort and check tube dimensions quickly, easily and contact-free during active production or random sampling. Our system can measure where other systems work up a sweat, such as on hot tubes or directly in flames (2400 °C).

Product category: Measurement and control of glass thickness


This system has made precision on-line measurements easier and more accurate than ever. Our customers are extremely impressed with this laser thickness measuring system, which operates at a maximum measuring accuracy of 0.001 mm (10x thinner than a human hair). Our TMF system (Thickness Measurement system for Float glass) maintains a high level of accuracy, even in areas that are extremely difficult to measure such as edges. The efficient use of a glass break monitor also provides additional security against potential collisions. Accuracy and speed combined: the TMF system produces 2000 individual measured values per second.

TMC system (Thickness Measurement system for Container glass)

You can use our modular TMC system (Thickness Measurement system for Container glass) to measure and evaluate the wall thickness distribution of your container glasses (hollow glasses) during active production, on the conveyor belt or random sampling. No components make contact with your glass containers or can damage them in any way. The TMC system simultaneously measures the minimum value, maximum value, ovality and other important parameters that enable you to evaluate the wall thickness distribution.
