Grenzebach has launched an updated version of the Float Scan Edge-digital (FSE-d) camera system.

It said the new version of the FSE camera system will increase yield in the cold end of flat glass production.

The system supplies important information for optimised cutting to size of the glass ribbon.

This system is available as new device as well as an add-on kit for equipment already installed.

The cutting equipment allows for accurate adjustment, so that a larger portion of the available glass ribbon can be used. In the case of schedule preventive maintenance, the maintenance staff can get support through new assistance systems.

The further development is based on 30 years of experience with the manufacturing of corresponding camera systems.

FSE-d can be directly integrated into the digital system by means of the Grenzebach Application Server. The IIoT platform has been developed in-house and the supplied information is useful for product optimisation and reporting.

FSE-d provides accurate function of the cutting technology, which is the core of the cold end of the float glass production line, with numerous values adds; higher yield, higher quality, easier processes, further networking and more data safety.
