FeneVision LineScanner is a high-speed, high-resolution and proven solution that will help you consistently find a high percentage of glass defects and regain the confidence of your customers. It’s a new and affordable solution.
Powered by Austrian engineering firm Softsolution, FeneVision LineScanner scans at a resolution up to 400 dots-per-inch at production speeds as fast as 50 meters per minute. It can output to a standalone display station or be integrated with your current ERP or other production system.
Glass defects discovered after fabrication require remakes and can delay the shipping of complete orders. Glass defects discovered in delivered and installed units? These upset customers and require even costlier remedies.
Both damage your bottom line and the reputation of your business.
While the cost of quality issues is high, the available solutions have been unsatisfactory. Human inspection of lites and insulated glass has proven inconsistent. It is time consuming and labor intensive. And the additional handling introduces its own opportunities for damage.
Automated scanning required installation of sensor technology too costly and inaccurate for nearly all window and door makers and glass fabricators. Until now.
Scan lites and IG
Find contamination, damage and body faults on all surfaces of lites and IG with transmittance of 5 to 95%.
Scan at production speed
LineScanner is accurate at speeds up to 50 meters per minute or about 9,800 feet per hour.
