Photomeric Calculations

One product, two solutions

arcon sunbelt D oHT (optional heat treatable) makes a lot of things easier: You can use one and the same base glass as non-toughened float glass or thermally toughened glass (tempered/heat-strengthened safety glass). Due to the innovative coating design the change in colour as a result of the heat treatment is barely noticeable, allowing the combined use of float glass or toughened safety glass in one building.

Inline measuring process sets new standards in assessing anisotropies

With the new StrainScanner, automatic and objective inline measuring technology which enables the perfect tempering of glass is available for the first time: When leaving the tempering furnace, photoelastic measurement of the glass panes is performed in real time and analysed with regard to anisotropy. Using the measuring results, the process can be optimised as required – and the best possible tempering qualities are reproducible. The StrainScanner is the result of successful cooperation between arcon, the technology brand of the company group Arnold Glas, and the company ilis from Erlangen.
