We help glass manufacturers measure and verify the critical dimensions of a product against specific requirements.

Our intricate processes identify any dim issues related to packaging and decorating glass containers, such as applying lids and labels.

We are a test house that understands the unique challenges seen in the glass industry with regards to glass containers. We not only provide tailored dimensional measurements based on the specific issues or desired outcomes but can provide recommendations and deliver additional testing to ensure conformity based on the interpretation of the dimensional test results.

Measurements include

  • thread dimensions
  • angles and radii
  • internal bores
  • verticality
  • ovality.

The specialist equipment used for these detailed examinations include a

  • vision measuring system (with optional touch probe accessory)
  • Baty Quadra-Chek profile projector
  • bespoke verticality gauge.

We also have standard measuring equipment such as

  • a micrometer
  • a hall effect thickness gauge
  • an ultrasonic thickness gauge
  • a height gauge
  • vernier calipers.
