SCA – Integrated Infrared Scanner

Measuring the outgoing glass temperature distribution

Three reasons for choosing Integrated Scanner (SCA)


Improved glass quality and yield


Highly-detailed production and quality monitoring


Instant feedback enables fast corrections to the process

High quality with a wide range of specialty glass

The role of measuring is increasingly important as new glass applications (e.g. safety glass or solar panels) appear. While glass is becoming a more visible part of our environment, quality issues grow in importance.

The Integrated Scanner (SCA) represents a simple and reliable way to improve process quality and yield. It measures and visualizes temperature distribution on batch at the exit of the furnace.

Speaking about his company’s recent upgrade, he continues: “The entire upgrade project with Glaston’s ProL-zone went very smoothly. We’ve now been able to increase our laminating capacity, run the line with flexibility and ease – and lower our energy consumption.”
