After the tin bath, flat glass has a temperature of approx. 600 °C. At the transition to the cooling zone and in the other subsequent cooling zones, thermoIMAGER infrared cameras are used for temperature inspection. Infrared cameras enable non-contact temperature monitoring of the cooling process from a safe distance to the glass.
Thanks to the TIM Connect Software, the thermoIMAGER cameras can also be used as line scan cameras. The software enables the user to choose any line from the detector array and to position it.
