Compact infrared camera for the glass industry

October 28, 2014

Market innovation launched at Glasstec 2014

Infrared camera for glass industry

The material glass requires special equipment for non-contact temperature measurement due to its physical properties. In addition to the special infrared thermometers, Optris GmbH introduced the thermal imaging camera optris® PI 450 G7 to the market at Glasstec 2014. With its 7.9µm filter, the camera is perfectly suited for applications in the glass industry.
“Our cameras are highly regarded in the industry due to their compact design and the excellent price-performance ratio,” declared Thomas Ullrich, Sales Director Middle & Eastern Europe at Optris GmbH. With the new G7 model of the PI series, processes in the glass industry can now be regulated by even more highly accurate temperature measurement on glass surfaces.

Application as line scan camera for tempering processes
The license-free optris® PIX Connect software, which is included in the scope of delivery, has a line scan camera function (line scan mode), which, for example, measures pane temperature during transport of glass panes on conveyor belts. This is a particularly important quality factor for tempering processes, e.g. for ESG and VSG. At an ambient temperature of up to 70 °C, the infrared camera is fully operational without a cooling jacket. With a jacket size of 46x56x90 mm3 and a weight of 320 grams (incl. lens) the optris® PI 450 G7 is particularly suited for applications in confined spaces and for installation in industrial facilities. Due to an imaging frequency of 80 Hz, glass products can be continuously tested, even in fast processing.
