Osprey™ 9 Transmissive Distortion Inspection System

The Osprey 9 Transmissive Distortion system is the latest addition to the Osprey family of inspection systems. The Osprey line of inspection systems are the industry standard for real-time inspection of glass and plastic.

The Osprey 9 Transmissive Distortion provides real time, on-line inspection of transmitted distortion (refractive power) of flat glass and plastic sheets. Transmitted distortion is measured over 100% of the product in diopters. The results are displayed in real time via refractive power map.

The Osprey is designed and manufactured in the U.S. to the highest standards of precision and durability. Using patented optics, high-speed cameras, and powerful algorithms, Osprey 9 Transmissive Distortion provides direct measurement of Refractive Power and Angular Deviation as defined in DIN 52305 §9.2 and §9.1. The Osprey 9 Trasmissive Distortion system provides an updated apparatus and procedure employing same fundamental optical properties as defined in DIN 52305 §8.

The Osprey 9 Transmissive Distortion is rugged, intuitive, low-maintenance and leverages LiteSentry's large proven suite of Quality Control and analysis tools. The Osprey 9 Transmissive Distortion supports integration with many third-party ERP/MRP.
