Sensors along a 6-brush cleaning system determine the type of glass finish, and will even apply the appropriate brushes to treat a soft-coat finish. A purifying station then variates water consistuency by mixing its own low-iron solution to prevent streaking, before a thorough dry process takes place.
A quality and shake scanner appraises the integrity of each glass panel before it is accepted to further stages. The exact dimensions are also recorded at this point, including glass thickness.
Imperfections which may compromise quality of a manufactured unit are recieved by an operator, who will then undertake further inspection of the panel to ensure it meets exacting standards to be used in a final sealed unit.
Final panel dimensions, including the production date, are automatically embossed into the spacer bar, together with the manufacturerer's name and registration number to ensure quality assurance levels are maintained throughout the product's life.
An argon tank manufactures gas in bulk on the facility, and is able to acheive an impressive 10% lead over the fill required by law, into every sealed unit.
