Glossy spots on the frosted glass plates

Monitoring small glossy spots on frosted glass plates

Frosted glass plates are used for example in flatscreen tv's, with solar panels, etc. These products require a high quality of materials. During the production these plates are monitored to inspect small glossy spots on the frosted surface to guarantee this quality. These spots should be detected and then be corrected. The inspection consists of a gloss measurement on the frosted glass plates. With a gloss sensor from Sensor Instruments, glossy spots from 3 mm are detected. After this these spots are edited. This results in less turned-down products, a higher quality of the plates and better end products.
