Sensor ensures polyurethane bead quality
Oxford Vision & Sensor Technology
The Beadmonitor has been launched by Oxford Sensor Technology to ensure the quality of polyurethane (PU) beads as they are applied to vehicle glass.
A sensor head mounts directly behind the applicator nozzles and monitors the width and height of the bead as it is applied.
A user interface depicts the vehicle glass, with the bead path market in green, orange or red, depending on its width and height compared to preset tolerances.
Two separate bar X and R charts show the consistency of the bead width and height.
The Beadmonitor is being offered as a solution to the inspection of PU beads, enabling tighter control of safety-critical procedures.
