„3D“ SIMPLY EXPLAINED

How to inspect architectural glass reliably?
Learn how to inspect architectural glass in order to reliably detect glass defects such as scratches, bubbles, contaminations, … during glass processing. What to do if you try hard to improve your glass quality but still receive complaints: e.g. “Scratch or coating blemish only visible in sunshine”?

This video gives fantastic insights into the complexity of optical defect inspection of flat glass. What appears to be so simple, is not always easy to implement into glass factories! Send us your feedback on this video or contact us for any further questions. We will be happy to raise your glass quality as well to a new level!

Our products

Jumbo Controller

THE JUMBO-STRONG GLASS SCANNER THAT DETECTS DEFECTS PRIOR TO CUTTING
The earlier errors are detected, the better. That’s why we have developed our Jumbo Controller, an intelligent glass scanner, with one outstanding advantage: Placed in the cutting area, it identifies every defect in the glass that will definitely lead to a complaint. Without ifs and buts and without prior washing.

ECO Scanner

THE WORLD’S ONLY PLUG & PLAY SCANNER – DETECTS GLASS DEFECTS AT THE LOWEST INVESTMENT VOLUME
With its attractive pricing, the ECO Scanner is the first and only Plug & Play scanner to define a new category on the market and thus has a truly unique position for pure brightfield applications. Thanks to its compact dimensions and easy installation, the ECO Scanner can also be set up and put into operation by the user.

Quality Scanner 3D

THE UNIQUE 3-DETECTION CHANNEL SCANNER THAT LOCATES GLASS DEFECTS WITHOUT COMPROMISE
The Quality Scanner 3D automates your glass quality control at the highest level. The efficient quality control system with up to three detection channels is integrated directly after glass washing. With its bright field channel, dark field channel and reflection channel it reliably detects all types of glass defects of monolithic panes. Even with acid etched or sandblasted glass, mirrors and facade or (partially) flat screen printing plates, nothing escapes the attention of Viprotron’s Quality Scanner 3D.

ANISOTROPY SCANNER

THE SCANNER THAT MEASURES AND MINIMIZES ANISOTROPIES AND DISPLAYS WHITE HAZE
In the evaluation of tempered facade glass, anisotropies are a major point of discussion between glass manufacturers and architects or end users. This scanner reliably visualizes anisotropies and, with an optional channel, also detects white haze.

White Haze Scanner

THE UNMATCHED DEFECT DETECTION OF WHITE HAZE AFTER THE TEMPERING PROCESS
After the tempering process, Viprotron’s White Haze Scanner detects the areas where furnace-induced damage to the glass surfaces has occurred. These are analyzed and localized in real time as soon as they occur, so that the defects can be polished out before delivery to the customer. All options are available, from stand-alone systems to fully integrated ERP solutions. Subsequent costs due to complaints are thus minimized!

Quality Checker

THE FINAL INSPECTION CHECKER THAT VERIFIES QUALITY AND MASS WITH PATENTED TECHNOLOGY
The Quality Checker reliably carries out the final inspection of your glass production in terms of quality and glass mass. With two versions it can be integrated into the safety glass production as well as at the end of an insulating glass line. At the same time, the system documents all quality-relevant test results. In this way, you reduce your complaint costs to a minimum, reliably secure your customer commitments, and are optimally prepared in any eventuality.

COATING SENSOR

THE OPTIONAL SENSOR FOR THE DETECTION OF COATINGS ON INSULATING GLASS SURFACES
The Coating Sensor detects in a direct pass whether there is a metallic layer on the outer surfaces of an insulating glass unit and thus prevents extremely unpleasant complaints. The sensor can also be used for single panes in order to correct wrongly positioned glass layers in time. This makes the Coating Sensor an ideal option to be integrated into any production line.

DEFECT POINTER

THE OPTIONAL ADDITION TO LOCATE GLASS DEFECTS EVEN FASTER
With the optional integration of the Defect Pointer into the Quality Scanner 3D or the Quality Checker you can further increase the productivity and quality of your glass production. The exact visual localization of defects makes it practically impossible for your employees to overlook glass defects.
