Raytek GS150/GS150LE Thermal Imaging Systems/Glass Industry

Infrared line scanner thermal imaging system – glass bending, forming, tempering


Raytek GS150 thermal imaging systems enable automated quality control in glass bending, forming, annealing, and tempering processes. The GS150LE variant is especially designed for Low-E (low emissivity) glass / one-side coated flat glass. It features automatic emissivity correction. The systems are based on the Raytek MP150 infrared line scanner, which has a max. resolution of 1024 points per line, a max. 150 Hz scanning frequency, and an up to 90° wide field of view. SYSTEM PROPERTIES • Automated temperature monitoring • Visualization on PC • Ethernet TCP/IP interface integrated in the line scanning system • PC-independent alarm output • PC-independent analog outputs 3 x 4 – 20mA BENEFITS • Improve profitability and product quality • Reduce set-up time • Detect defects quickly • Automate quality monitoring for ISO9000 • Reduce scrap • Efficiently manage the heat balance in the oven • Automatically adjust the emissivity value when changing glass types or coatings
