Assessment of high speed behaviour of tires with laser inspection
At very high speed, tires undergo an inspection on a roller type test stand, while being measured by a laser-line scanner over their entire width, including the tire shoulder.
The laser scanner used for that purpose must dispose of a wide laser line and high resolution; furthermore it is required to scan the surface dynamics at a considerable speed. An additional difficulty for the laser inspection arises due to the high absorption rate of the (black) material.
Particularly for this application, QuellTech has equipped its Q6- Laserline Sensor with an extremely powerful laser source. The model configured this way is able to produce scan rates of up to 10,000 Hz with ultra-short exposure times of only a few micro seconds.
Supported by this particularly adapted Q6 laser line scanner, the client meanwhile carries out studies with the aim of analyzing the dynamical change of tire geometry. The results of this investigation will help him to optimize the substructure.
