Glass Slimming

Glass Slimming is a process to reduce the thickness and weight of glass substrates for use in optical components and displays. Bristol’s non-contact thickness gauges are used worldwide to measure these substrates in real-time with sub-micron accuracies.

  • Non-contact technique means no damage or deformation
  • Real-time results for fast testing throughput during the slimming process
  • Ability to measure substrates from 12 µm to 80 mm thickness with high accuracy (± 0.1 µm) and excellent repeatability (± 0.02 µm)
  • Included Opti-Cal ™ software offers a QC Mode which provides easy to understand PASS/FAIL measurements based on your design criteria

Figure 1: Opti-Cal ™ software screenshot that shows measurement results for a typical glass substrate. The software is in QC Mode, and shows the substrate measurement is in spec and highlighted in green. If the glass substrate was out of specification it would be highlighted in red.
