Tin side detector for float glass
In many production processes which use float glass, it is important to know which side of the glass has been in contact with molten tin during its manufacture.
InSystems Automation has developed two tin side detectors which perform the automatic identification of the tin side of float glass: Tinsor and Tinsor+.
The tin side detector is mounted onto the material handling system along which the float glass is transported.
As the float glass moves past the detector, the detector identifies the presented surface of the glass as “tin side” or “air side”.
The successful identification will be expressed through the corresponding signal lights “Tin” and “Air”.
Both Tin side detectors are available in the InSystems Online-Shop.
