Camera system

It would be ideal if you could monitor the production process with your own eyes. Since this is not possible due to the high temperatures and the protective atmosphere, our camera systems in the tin bath give you insight into the process and make it visible. The spread of the glass ribbon in the tin bath entrance, the top roller machines, the narrowing of the glass ribbon at the shoulder level and the lift-out curve before the dross box – everything can be tracked visually.
For each tin bath, 18 to 20 camera periscopes with HD technology are used; depending on the number of top rollers, there might be even more. They are important components of process automation; in particular, they help optimize the top roller line and thus reduce edge losses.
