Structured Solar Glass Inspection

Dr. Schenk's GlassInspect for structured solar glass inspection detects defects and irregularities that occur during the production of patterned glass or structured glass  for solar panels.

GlassMeasure continuously examines 100% of the solar glass surface to monitor physical material properties over a large area.

The main challenge in structured glass inspection is that the surface structure used for glass substrates of silicon solar modules creates similar or even stronger optical signals than the actual defects. GlassInspect for structured solar glass inspection is able  to precisely distinguish between glass structure and defects,  covering 100 %of the material surface including the edges.

It can eliminate nearly all of the "optical disturbances" from the surface structure.

GlassInspect for structured solar glass is used for local defect detection. Typical tasks include the detection of:

  • bubble (long) defects
  • bubble (round) defects
  • glass chip defects


GlassInspect & GlassMeasure for structured solar 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.
