Glass Slimming is a process to reduce the thickness and weight of glass substrates for use in displays. Bristol Instruments 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.
- QC Mode in Opti-Cal software ensures mistake free measurements for engineering, QC and production personnel.
Measurement results shown in table below are of a typical glass panel, displayed in Bristol's Opti-Cal software. Green boxes show the doublets are within spec. The box would be red if it fell out of specification. Up to 8 measurements can be taken at one time with the Bristol Gauge.
