Flat Panel Display Glass Inspection

GlassInspect for flat panel display glass inspection detects local defects and irregularities that occur in the manufacturing and processing of flat panel glass, including raw glass (float or down draw glass), bare glass sheets and coated display glass.

GlassMeasure continuously examines 100% of the glass surface to monitor overall physical properties such as coating thickness  and homogeneity, color variation, haze or surface topology.

Flat panel display glass inspection

GlassInspect for display glass glass inspection is used for local defect detection, including:

  • PT inclusion defect detection
  • ZR inclusion detection
  • Adhered glass detection (glass chips)
  • Scratch defect detection
  • Glass chip defect detection
  • Bubble defect detection
  • and stone defect detection

Typical flat panel display glass applications

Dr. Schenk’s solutions for flat panel display glass inspection are used in multiple manufacturing and process steps of flat panel display glass and include:

Coated display glass inspection

Bare glass sheet inspection

Raw glass inspection (float or down draw glass inspection)

Key feature

  • Analysis of the whole width of the glass material (up to GEN 10)
  • Defect Depth Location Measurement - a special optical set-up with two channels determines a defect's position on the bottom, top side or inside of the glass
  • Inspection of glass sheet edges, including measurement of edge conditions and corner cut dimensions
  • Air cushion based glass transportation technology

GlassInspect & GlassMeasure for flat panel display glass inspection use Dr. Schenk’s unique MIDA Technology so one defect generates multiple images to deliver the most comprehensive material analysis on the market.
