Sensor ensures polyurethane bead quality
Oxford 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.
