Three reasons for choosing Quality Monitoring System (QMS)
Improved glass quality and yield
Highly-detailed production and quality monitoring
Product identification and tracking
Captures and stores data
The role of measuring is increasingly important as new glass applications, such as safety glass or solar panels, are evolving. As glass becomes a more visible part of our environment, quality issues are growing in importance.
The Quality Monitoring System provides an ideal solution for online quality monitoring of tempered safety glass. It captures and stores process data in accordance with the Factory Production Control (FPC) standard EN 12150-2. The required monitoring data can be printed in the form of a system report. When equipped with an infrared scanner it also captures and stores the actual glass output temperature.
