TIN SIDE DETECTOR

In the glass industry, glass sheets are commonly used in the mirroring, lamination and screen printing processes and for the production of artistic glass products, such as tables, chairs, sinks, etc.

The glass plates obtained from the “float” process usually have a “clean” face, otherwise called the “air side”, on which are carried out all the processes mentioned above, and a face covered with a thin tin film called “tin side”.
Helios Quartz thanks to its strong experience in the glass industry, has developed the best quality control solution for all operators in the glass industry, usually large glassmakers with in-line processes, who want the certainty that the whole processing is made on the “air side”.

AUTOMATIC TIN DETECTOR is a device able to detect autonomously the presence of the tin side or the air side of float glass sheets. It is usually mounted above the glass sheets on the conveyor belt before entering the furnace and it scans all the glass sheets that will enter the processing stage.
The device is designed to interface directly with the production machinery control panel, instantly signalling with a green LED if it scans the air side; while, if it scans the “tin side” a sound signal and a red light indicate an alarm, stopping the production line and thus allowing the operator to place the glass plate in the correct position.
