Market innovation at glasstec 2016: VGA infrared camera for the glass industry

28.09.2016

Line scan camera for the production of glass panes and container glass

Again, Optris GmbH introduced a new infrared camera for the glass industry at the glasstec 2016. With its 7.9 µm filter, the thermal imager optris PI 640 G7 is perfectly suited for the measurement of glass and, due to the VGA resolution, offers an even wider range of possible fields of application.

“The software optris PI Connect enables the use as a line scan camera, which is essential for the temperature control of glass ribbons and glass panes” declared Torsten Czech, Head of Product Management at Optris.

Temperature measurement under difficult conditions

Temperature monitoring is crucial in the glass industry and it is an integral part of almost all stages of the production process. In confined and hot surroundings, temperature can sometimes only be determined by room sensors.

The compact infrared thermometers and cameras of Optris enable the operation even in confined spaces with high temperatures. The thermal camera monitors the temperature distribution in cooling processes of flat glass production as well as in the production of container glass.

The material glass requires special sensors

For the accurate measurement of temperatures, emissivity is a key factor. Glass usually exhibits an emissivity of 0.85 µm in the longwave range. In processes with higher temperatures, it is measured with 5.0 µm or 7.9 µm because in those spectral ranges the emissivity is ≥0.95. The main advantage of 7.9 µm is the lower angel dependency of the emissivity.

About Optris

Optris was founded in 2003 and established itself as one of the leading manufacturers of non-contact temperature measurement equipment within a decade. The product range consists of both portable and stationary infrared thermometers and online infrared cameras for thermographic real time analyses. Optris products are developed and produced in Germany to ensure the highest standards in quality, a central element of company policy.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
