Tiama Xlab – A new 3D model for glass measurement and sampling
The Tiama Xlab is a full 3D dimensional and volume measurement solution for samplings.
Designed with the collaboration of different glassmakers, the Tiama Xlab has been conceived to fit their needs in terms of quality automation to support regular and advanced measurement operations.
Using Xray technology to scan and create an external and internal modelization of the containers, the Tiama Xlab has no limit on container or glass colour.
Providing key information on end container shape, glass distribution, variations between sections, cavities and half moulds, the Xlab’s 3D image sharing facility allows faster diagnostics for performing fine-tuning of the manufacturing process and final mould design – particularly useful when producing first samples.
Designed to be production-oriented and user-friendly, Tiama Xlab can be integrated into any existing glass production process, at the hot end, cold end or in a laboratory. Used for hot end process control, the Xlab ensures quality control from the first manufactured containers, making faster process and quality countermeasures and improvements. In a laboratory setting, the Xlab offers standard and advanced quality controls, and the ability to automate multiple operations with one tool.
