Jeff subsequently approached Domino onthe advice of a third party and explained indetail what kind of solution he had in mind.“Acquiring a new laser marking technology was a big step for Custom Glass, so we needed to be impressed by what Domino had to offer. Fortunately, what they put forwardwas a combined solution that meets our needs and is durable enough to be future proof.”
The D120i laser system is ideal for coding at low and high line speeds, while the small footprint of the flexible i-Tech scan head saves space and makes it simple to integrate into production lines. In Custom Glass’ case,the laser scribes a high quality code onto the corner of the glass prior to the toughening process and allows variable traceability information to be added. The visibility of thecode is not affected by the toughening process.
“Domino has managed to come up with a solution that is reliable and consistent. We are very pleased with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend Domino’s offering and services.”
However, with the varying shapes and sizes of the glass products that go through Custom Glass’ lines, further flexibility is required. This is where the Mobile Glass Coding Table comes into play. By vertically mounting the D120i laser at the bottom of the table, the system is able to code in designated corners of the glass as it is being smoothly moved across the industry rollers that are fitted onto the table’s surface.
“It is a highly effective arrangement,” continues Jeff. “We use the table for different sizes of glass and the laser efficiently manages to code in the required position each andevery time. The flexibility of the coding table certainly gives us a clear advantage over our competitors.”
He concludes: “Domino has managed tocome up with a solution that is reliable and consistent. We are very pleased with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend Domino’s offering and services.”
