Multi-layered glass thickness measuring solution 25/03/2014
In the manufacture of multi-layer curved glass for aircraft, automotive and architectural applications, precise thickness measurement of the individual layers, and combined overall laminate, are required. If the curvature of the different layers is not precise, when the layers are sandwiched together there could be a risk of stress points developing within the glass, which in turn could lead to defects or delamination of the glass. Full Story...
