Our sensors are used throughout the entire glass manufacturing process in order to reliably measure and evaluate the glass thickness of containers.

Non-contact measurement of glass containers

The TMC-FLX system measures the wall thickness distribution of containers at the cold end while they are rotating in the inspection machine. The measured values from the chromatic sensors are analysed in the base unit of the TMC-FLX system. This base unit then communicates the subsequent good/bad decision to the inspection machine and any defective bottles are sorted.

In addition, it is possible to couple the TMC-FLX system to a supervision system. The measurement data can be linked to mould numbers and therefore used to optimise processes. Spot checking the wall thickness on the production line is also necessary for process and quality controls.

The LabTMC® is suitable for this purpose and can be used at the hot or cold ends for offline wall thickness measurement. The convenient LabTMC® is ready for immediate use, meaning that bottles removed during production can be measured straight away.

Offline thickness measurement with the LabTMC

Our compact measuring device can be used for quick and accurate quality control in laboratories or for sampling inspections at the hot or cold ends in manufacturing.
