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.

USB 3.0, also known as Superspeed USB, is the next generation of the popular ‘plug and play’ Universal Serial Bus specification, building on the strengths of USB 2.0 while also correcting its weaknesses. This white paper from Multipix provides further information on USB 3.0, including chapters on the USB3 Vision Standard, how a USB 3.0 camera set-up functions within a vision system, and migration from an older interface to USB 3.0.
Resolve Optics has developed a variant of its Model 207 miniature motorised zoom lens, which has helped enable a manufacturer of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to improve the deep-sea welding capability of its system.
