Together with the UK's Society of Glass Technology, AGC Inc has established the Michael Cable Award to recognise achievements in glass research. The award commemorates the work of the late Professor Michael Cable from the University of Sheffield, who produced numerous outstanding achievements in the research of glass processes such as melting and moulding.
Dexter, Michigan-based k-Space Associates Inc recently shipped multiple process control systems to a North American customer that measure colour consistency during the production of dynamic glass.
The customised in-line metrology uses optical, non-contact measurement to obtain absolute colour parameters, as well as provide feedback for process control for colour consistency of the dynamic glass. The tool travels along a vertical, linear stage to obtain a full profile measurement of the glass panels.

The prize is awarded to those who, thanks to their achievement and creativity, contribute towards saving the planet.
