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.
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.

Clean and Efficient – Fraunhofer ISE Presents Hydrogen Technologies at the HANNOVER MESSE 2018
23.04.2018 | Fraunhofer-Institut für Solare Energiesysteme ISE
At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
