Paper Abstract

Solid state image scanners, using self scanned photodiode or CCD arrays have been used in the glass industry for a number of years and are now becoming accepted as production aids, as inspection devices, and in R & D. This paper describes the application of these devices to:- (i) The inspection of flat glass for discrete faults. (ii) The detection of windscreens broken during processing. (iii) The measurement of optical distortion produced by windscreens. (iv) Dimensional measurements on hot glass during processing. (v) The measurement of displacement during the dynamic strength testing of glass.
