Data-driven inspection

Inspection data created by the Evolution NEO is available not only on the machine itself but remotely for plant managers to monitor performance and initiate changes where necessary. In addition, defect images are available to hot end personnel, with the ability to share critical defect characteristics and defect images in real-time, alerting IS machine operators to instances of critical defect detection.

A series of web-based trend analysis tools can be accessed to provide graphical views of defects in real-time, to assist glassmakers to understand the causes of defects, to simplify the adjustment of settings and to reduce false rejection rates.
