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.
The Scorpion Color Identification system picks the best colour match from a set of reference images and calculates the colour coverage of the inspected item.
At the JEC exhibition in Paris on 10–12 March 2015, Delcam will showcase its latest developments for the machining and inspection of composites. These will include the latest releases of its PowerMILL machining software for high-speed and five-axis machining, including the PowerMILL Robot version for the programming of robots.
Scorpion Vision has a complete toolbox of robust and reliable 2D and 3D image processing tools needed for robot vision, gauging and assembly verification.
