One of the many new product debuts at Tire Technology Expo is on display on BST Eltromat International’s stand, where the company is showcasing its new, high-tech CS 200 inline profilometer for quality inspection of rubber webs by laser triangulation.
The CS 200 profilometer has two sensor heads on the top and two on the underside of the material web, each of which projects laser lines onto the rubber material. As a result, this inspection system covers the whole range of measuring widths up to a maximum of 1,000mm, and can thus be used for full inspection in the production of tires not only for passenger cars, but also for trucks and agricultural vehicles.
“If tire makers don’t want to leave anything to chance in production, and no longer want to rely on controlling the quality of the rubber webs at individual points or randomly, the CS 200 inline profilometer is the quality assurance solution of choice for them,” said senior project manager Martin Ohlendorf.
BST Eltromat is also highlighting improvements in its CCD CAM 100 high-performance camera for web guiding and future inspection tasks. Machine operators are now guided step-by-step by the intuitive operating menu on the touchscreen monitor, making their work much easier. Also, thanks to the newly developed mechanical fine-adjustment system, all three axes of rotation of the CCD CAM 100 can be set independently of each other in just a few minutes.
Tire Technology Expo runs until Thursday, 18 February in Halls 19 & 20 at the Deutsche Messe, Hannover, Germany. For more information or to register for a free exhibition pass, go to www.tiretechnology-expo.com.
