Glass gauging

Measurements of glass for automotive and industrial applications needs to be precise and delicate. A combination of probes and non-contact sensors provides the necessary accuracy.


Download Application Story


Taking measurements of glass for automotive and industrial applications needs to be precise and delicate. Too much tip force on a contact probe can move the part resulting in incorrect measurements. Solartron Low Tip Force Probes  address this and combined with the Orbit Digital Measurement Network  provide reliable data acquisition.

The Ultra Feather Touch probe carries a low 0.03 N tip force, and can be used on delicate materials, or surfaces that cannot be marred or scratched. The probe carries an accuracy of 6 microns, with outstanding repeatability. Like other Solartron Digital probes, it comes pre-calibrated, and is a viable alternative to
non-contact solutions.
The probe can quickly and easily be connected to a readout, PLC, or computer via the Solartron Orbit® 3 network.  

Application-specific featuring implements the range of Orbit® Digital Probes to it’s strengths, such as nylon tipped Feather Touch probes for products such as automotive glass.
