Abstract – LCD and OLED manufacturers can realize improvements in safety, quality, and production when utilizing Lumetrics’ technology to measure and control the glass slimming process. The OptiGauge II ® allows accurate real-time glass thickness monitoring during the acid etching process.
The windshield has become an increasingly complex component of an automobile requiring the latest metrology tools to meet the demands of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers. While limited to more expense vehicles today, Heads Up Display’s (HUD) will continue to increase in popularity as they help drivers focus on driving.
A small degree of wedge angle has been found useful in minimizing ghosting in automotive windshields with Heads Up Displays (HUD). The Lumetrics OptiGauge II can measure the thickness of all layers of a laminated windshield simultaneously and is capable of determining the wedge angle as a function of location on the windshield with a high degree of accuracy as well as determining how much wedge is in each layer.
