Glass Inspection


Glass for windows is produced in a giant crucible and flows in a continuous strip until it cools sufficiently to be cut into large sheets.

To test the quality of the glass, the sheet is scanned with a light spot prior to cutting. An array of photomultiplier modules collects the light and detects any bubbles or flaws in the glass, allowing each sheet to be graded.
