UTM – Statistical process control to measure glass thickness

Picto Inspection

Tiama’s Universal Thickness Measurement (UTM) device performs six simultaneous measurements: thickness (mini, maxi. & average); ovality; glass distribution ratio and large blisters detection.
UTM is designed to be installed on all Tiama rotating machines MX4, M, CHECK+, and C0 as well as on most of the carousel machines available on the market. However, when associated with a Tiama MX4, all the measurement results for each container can be accessed to conduct a complete process follow-up through SPC.
