During the manufacturing of float glass, the side that comes in contact with the tin will contain traces of tin and tin oxide. Locating the tin-side is important in this application and many others, including laminating, printing and specialty coating.
There are several hand held units on the market for this means of detection, but none that can be used as a part of an automated process. The solution is the UVX Tin-side sensor. This sensor reliably verifies the presence of the tin-side of float glass.
