Newly produced rubber layers are not easy to inspect by laser scanners, since the black surface is highly light absorbing, so requires lots of light power. For this reason, a laser scanner with a powerful light source is imperative.
A high-resolution QuellTech 2D/3D Q5-240 Laser Scanner proved to be adequate for this project. It is placed over a continuously running conveyer belt. The efficient QuellTech measurement software is integrated as well. It is used for detection of coordinates of the base of the tread grooves and the peaks. After completion of each 2D profile measurement, coordinates are calculated, and results are sent to PLC.
At a reasonable cost level, the customer could achieve a 100% continuous inline inspection in his production process. Thus, false positives and negatives are now identified more reliably.
We are happy to carry out an initial test measurement for you. We give you an assessment of the feasibility of your measurement task.
We support you technically and in terms of sales in further approach and implementation.
