The IRIS-M system from show attendee Sick (booth 1135), optimizes the quality control process for markers and permits the cost-effective inspection of each individual tire. It processes both 3D and color information, which makes it possible to differentiate reliably between the markers on the basis of their color and also dependably protects the application against incorrect acceptability classifications.
This comprehensive solution is scalable and can therefore be integrated seamlessly into the production process where it permits 100% inspection coverage coupled with high throughput rates. All components of the system are precalibrated and can be replaced quickly and easily.
Thanks to its modular design and pioneering maintenance concept, the system can be commissioned quickly and without any specialist knowledge of vision systems. The combination of color information and 3D technology ensures that markers can be reliably detected under a huge range of ambient conditions and that the results are not impaired by dirt or reflections.
There are two more days of Tire Technology Expo left, so head along to Köln Messe in Germany to find out more about Sick’s latest innovation.
