Rondot SAS has developed the first portable and fast optical system to measure the thickness of the hot-end treatment (HEC), on all shades of glass.

The Tom Cat is a tin oxide monitoring and coating application tester.

Operators are able to immediately control the thickness of the thin tin oxide layer of coating at the hot end without waiting for lehr time or laboratory control.

The system has been validated by Arkema’s Glass Coating laboratory in Vlissingen, The Netherlands and proved its efficiency.
