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.
Every infrared camera defines its field of view (FOV) across a horizontal or vertical axis. According to IRISS, there are two ways to determine the FOV on a camera: (1) you can calculate the FOV; or (2) you can measure the FOV with a practical field test. A practical FOV test is a quick method to determine what can be seen at set distances with your camera, the lens and infrared windows.
The Scorpion 3D Stinger calibration objects are supported by sample profiles showing best practice for both manual and automatic 3D calibration.
