GlassDrop

Measuring the size of molten glass drops

The system measures the length of the glass drop during manufacturing of drink glasses. The ball of glass is flattened and inflated by the pressurized air. The glass protrudes due to the air pressure as well as gravity and its length is measured by camera. The measured length is used to adjust the air pressure as well as other parameters of the production line. The system works in the hostile environment of the glass works.

GlassDrop system builds on Neovision OPAS measurement technology, but instead of using back illumination, it shapes the light emitted from the molten glass.
