A prime example of the capabilities of the GFP™2600 STRIP is the integral role of the instrument in the Osprey 9 Complete by LiteSentry™. The Osprey 9 Complete was developed in partnership with Stress Photonics Inc. The system is designed for installation on any brand of tempering line, creating a paradigm shift in tempering.
The GFP2600 STRIP allows for anisotropy inspection to be integrated with the industry-leading Osprey Distortion + Flatness Inspection system. With two state-of-the-art inspection systems housed in a single unit, the Osprey 9 Complete provides 100% inspection, offering visualization and quantification of the most challenging problems in glass fabrication.
The GFP2600 STRIP Photoelastic Stress Analysis (PSA) System is managed with easy-to-use DeltaVision™ software—a versatile tool for capturing, presenting, analyzing, and archiving photoelastic data.
Among many other features, the DeltaVision provides:
The GFP2600, in conjunction with the STRIP Illuminator, allows for full-field stress images of large glass samples. Easily collect accurate and quantifiable stress data over an entire window, or other large piece of glass, to solve problems in manufacturing, or to create a database of residual stress information.
Anisotropy — often seen as reflected iridescence — is a problem of growing interest to architects, developers, and building owners. It is a natural result of the tempering process when unbalanced residual temper stress selectively reflects polarized light.
Iridescence is frequently visible when glass reflects the polarized light of blue skies or water. In these situations, light that would naturally pass through the glass rotates, causing shimmering patterns where glass stress is high and reflected, and dark patterns where stress is low.
The Osprey 9 Complete by LiteSentry™ was developed in partnership with Stress Photonics Inc. The system is designed for installation on any brand of tempering line, creating a paradigm shift in tempering. The Osprey® 9 Complete utilizes Stress Photonics’ GFP2600 Real-time Photoelastic Stress Analysis (PSA) System coupled with a STRIP Illuminator. The GFP2600 instrumentation provides 100% inspection, offering visualization and quantification of the most challenging problems in glass fabrication.
