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.
Oxford Sensor Technology (OST) now supplies, installs, commissions and supports machine vision systems based on a range of smart/intelligent camera technologies.
Advantech-GPEG has introduced the M2talk video card, which gives users remote access and control of any networked monitor system without the need for costly additional wiring, communication ports or power supplies, enabling them to react to real-time events and interact directly with customers.
Matrox Imaging has scheduled another round of classroom training on the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) processing tools and the MIL/MIL-Lite environment. The session will be held on 16–20 June 2014 at the company’s headquarters in Montreal, Canada, and registration before 16 May qualifies for a 20 per cent saving on tuition.
Sensl’s B-series of fast, blue-sensitive silicon photomultiplier sensors, available from AP Technologies, is designed for ultra-fast timing applications.
